We all saw the video of Itsuki’s voice actor screaming his lungs out when Keiichi Tsuchya takes him on a drift ride. Well, how about this female reporter riding along with Haruto Yanagida in the Nissan R810V shortly before the 1986 JSPC?
She literally screams her lungs out after the first two corners and bursts into tears when the lap is over… Poor girl…
I must say I probably would not like to trade places with her. The Nissan R810V was based upon the Lola T810 chassis and was powered by a high performance tuned Nissan VG30ET V6 engine. There were no official power outputs of this car, but its IMSA brother had an power output of 641hp and only a weight of 860kg! Imagine driving launched from 90km/h to 300km/h in a few seconds on a wet Fuji Speedway straight: I would probably scream as well. 😮
Also this nicely tuned Nissan Crew, probably with a highly tuned RB26DETT engine:
Tuned Nissan Crew with RB26DETT
The Nissan Crew is the counterpart of the Toyota Comfort GT-Z, however it has got a bit more
Also Ken Nomura (Nomuken) features in this video and gives his best shot at a Toyota Crown policecar. He fails (possibly on purpose) and Keiichi takes over the attempt with a 4 door R34 Skyline and he succeeds in drifting it.
The video itself is quite funny to watch, but most probably all setup beforehand since it is a Hot Version video after all. Unfortunately Crunchyroll does not support embedding of videos, so you will have to visit Crunchyroll itself to view the video:
[Keiichi Tsuchiya instructs cops how to drift]
I was browsing some movies on Youtube and found a lot of Group A coverage of the Japanese Touring Car Championship during the 80s. Lots of cool cars like the Toyota Corolla AE86, Nissan Skyline DR30 and in later coverage the Nissan Skyline HR31.
During the JTCC 1989 season the coverage was illustrated by Keiichi Tsuchiya. During that era Keiichi Tsuchiya drove the Sierra RS500 for Cosmo Oil and you can see him sitting in the Cosmo Oil pitbox. I only found two coverages so far and hopefully I will find some more later on…
This race was held on the West Circuit (Mine circuit) and Keiichi and his co-driver qualified 8th and finished eleventh.
This race was held at the Sendai Highland Raceway and Keiichi and his co-driver qualified 8th and finished 3rd. It is great to see that the AE86 wasn’t entirely dead in 1989: the Trampio Levin is still driving around. 😉
This is a few years after when his pluspy videos (with the Levin and Trueno) was shot: First pluspy video (Levin) Second pluspy video (Trueno)
Same glasses and footage of the AE82 FX number 38 he drove during the 5th round of the JTCC on the Fuji International Speedway in november 9th 1986.
