Iwai is back: D1GP KP61
September 2, 2009
After a long lull between competing events, Teruyoshi Iwai 岩井照宜 is back with his KP61. Ebisu was the host of round 5 of the D1GP and I had a big smile on my dial when I saw that he had competed again. I did a post of this car a while back, check it out for more photos
As you can imagine, a tiny KP61 versus a bunch of highly tuned ‘modern’ cars was not real match, however I get much more stoke from watching him slide his KP than 90% of the top cars. He summed up a 93.87 in his qualifying run which didn’t get him into the top 20 but ah well, give me a field of KPs like his any day.
The first two photos are from car@nifty, cheers guys. In that post I did a while ago I linked to a video of this car off option2, definitely worth a look if you haven’t seen it before. Teruyoshi has a mad faint.
This next bunch of photos are some I found trolling, and are from way back. 2005.
One last little one. Cool
I hope there is some more video of it in the next option
