Haruki,
Good job, and your guys ROCK!
After seeing the quality of their chassis here, I am impressed.
See you at the Checkpoint Cup in January!

Some more photos of the 8th Tokyo D3 race.

Yoshi Akiyama has been back to the retro racing here in Tokyo.

F1 starts.

Can-Am A-main racing action.

Can-Am was a very close race.
The difference of Yoshi Hirose (winner) and Tebu (2nd) was less than 1 foot.

I will send more photos to Keith Tanaka for his race reports site, soon.

Thank you Haruki and Akitani for the race report and photos. As usual a great looking group of cars and some close racing. Congrats to H. Yoshi and Hashimoto for their wins and to all of the racers. It's nice to see Yoshi Akiyama again. It would be great if Yoshi, and any of the other racers, could join Haruki in coming here for the Checkpoint cup or the Western States races.

Nice to see Jiro racing Retro. He was always a good Wing racer andTQed at the USRA Nats this year in the Geezer race with a 1.58. I used to race with him in the late 90's when he lived in NJ.

Hi, Fred,

I am so happy to have such a nice racer as Jiro at our Tokyo D3 racing program.
He is always very helpful at our raceway.

Yoshi HIrose has won the Semi-Pro championship at the 1984 USRA Nat's and raced regularly at the Nat's until the early 90's.
Hashimoto was active in racing Group 7 cars with Yoshi unitl the mid 90's.
Tebu won the semi-pro at the 1992 Nat's at Zepperin Hobbies.

One of our fastest qualifiers, Ryu raced with Yoshi, Tebu and Kamo in Tokyo before the wing-car era.

I really enjoy racing Tokyo D3 not only because of the high quality of racing but thanks to really nice racers.

They are very friendly, especially to new comers to retro racing, helping them set up and repair cars and renting race cars.

Good Racing,

Haruki

After checking out this race report of yours I just might go out to my workshop and dust off my soldering iron and build a Can Am car. I wonder...............?

Hello Mike,
Our Tokyo D3 racers appreciate your warm words.
The D3 racing started by you is really a great racing program.
Thanks to Keith, I was so lucky to find D3 and now we have our own racing program here in Tokyo.
Looking forward to seeing and racing with you at the coming Check Point Cup at BPR in January.
Good Racing,
