1969 Japan Grand Prix was the zenith of early sportscar racing in Japan, with Nissan and Toyota involved in heavy competition. At the annual event on the Fuji racetrack Nissan was able to prevail, due to its mighty Nissan R382, with it’s 6 liter engine. Motoharu Kurosawa was the eventual winner of the 720 kilometre long race in the nr.21 yellow painted car.
Famous Chaparral 2J with it’s sucker fans was easily the fastest car around the Laguna Seca in practice, unfortunately the reliability wasn’t there and the blown engine meant they couldn’t start in the race.
Ferrari 612p was Enzo’s weapon for the can-am championship, the car was first introduced in 1968, but it was unsuccessful, the next year car started to show better form and finished on the podium in a couple of races, but then Ferrari decided to stop with the funding and before the end of the season the program was abandoned.
