I caught this guy at the CSRG season opener and Alfa Romeo 100th anniversary event at Sears Point on Saturday. I wish I could have found him in the paddock to take close ups. The racing was awesome, the weather was not, but it stayed dry for most of the day on Sat, Sunday was another story. I saw some pics of a Volvo charging through an area of standing water sending a splash higher than the car.

To be honest, I have no idea. I was too focused on taking pictures to listen to the sounds. I didn't even notice it was a Honda till I was editing the 1000+ pics I shot.

Tyson,
That's the Taki Racing Team Porsche 908 'Flounder', driven by Hans Herrmann and Kenjiro Tanaka in the 1969 Japan GP. It's German...... :mrgreen:

Everybody please note that this Mazda might look to be in front of the GT-Rs, but it's just about to be lapped...... :mrgreen:

Bit of a sad effort wasn't it?

Katayama in a car that might look 'right' to a one-eyed man with myopia, but almost stock mechanically ( the spirit of Mazdaspeed turning in its grave ) and Takahashi in Victory 50's KGC10-based "GT-R" ( complete with L-gata engine ).......... :roll:

Better - more representative - cars are available. Don't know why the organisers couldn't coordinate something more fitting for Katayama and Takahashi. Talk about going off half-cocked.......

Can someone tell me where and when this photo was taken?

Can someone point me to some more period race photos of the KPGC 10 in 1971?

I'm researching race paint liveries and tech specs of these cars so I can build an accurate slot car model from the 1/32nd scale Arii model kit.

Thanks for your help.

That's the 'TS-b' class ( Touring Car ) race from the 1971 Japan Grand Prix meeting at Fuji Speedway, on 3rd May 1971.

The Mazda Familia Rotary Coupe no.1 ( Katsuyoshi ISHIKAWA ) is just about to be passed by the no.8 Skyline 2000 GT-R ( Masahiro HASEMI ) and the no.6 Skyline 2000 GT-R ( Kunimitsu TAKAHASHI ) on the approach to the '300R' corner, with the grandstands on the main straight visible in the background.

TAKAHASHI went on to win the race, with HASEMI second and Hiroshi KUBOTA in the no.9 Skyline 2000 GT-R third. Fourth was Yasuhiro OKAMOTO in his no.19 Mazda Familia Rotary Coupe. ISHIKAWA finished thirteenth.

The two Skyline 2000 GT-Rs in the photo - both Nissan 'works' PMCS cars - used the very recognisable wide stripe paint scheme over an off-white base body colour. In this race, the no.6 car was red stripe over white, with red headlamp covers and rear spoiler, and the no.8 car was green over white, with green headlamp covers and rear spoiler.

This 'works' KPGC10 colourscheme is easy to research ( plenty of images out there, and a 1/24 plastic kit decal sheet could even be used for reference ), and a very nice replica of the green & white HASEMI car exists too. Here are a couple of pics of it from the 2005 NISMO Festival at Fuji Speedway:

Hope that helps.

HS30-H,

Thanks for that info and the replica photos. They are most helpful. Any more vintage 1971 race photos of the actual team cars would be appreciated as well, if you can suggest where I might search.
