As much as I like best motoring, I find they are very biased against imports (into japan). I would not be surprised if they sandbagged the german cars a little. :P
Tsukuba really favors the lotus (and any other super light/powerful cars) since it's such a small and tight course.
Anywho... back to that noooooooooooooooooo
that guy was so far beyond his skill that he noooooooooooooooooed after the airbags deployed and after the car came to a stop... which meant he had no idea things were even going wrong over the 2nd last crest... he should've felt the brake go to the floor as he pretty much yumped the 2 crests before he went airborne. Talk about not even knowing what was going on with the car.
