It was one of the most epic races I ever saw. No doubt about it, the Nurburgring 24h is always the best :D

MNicholas2748d ago

If so that's very impressive.

Abriael2748d ago (Edited 2748d ago )

yes, he did. Nurburgring 24 hours races have 4 drivers because driving for more than 6 hours on that kind of track would be almost inhuman. Yamauchi already took part to quite a few races, and is an expert driver. He's no figurehead and his participation wasn't a promotional stunt (or at least, not JUST that) :D

Kazuroni Yamauchi-san is a Professional Driver, he loves Racing and that's get Really Reflected in His Creations

GT5 FTW!!!

MazzingerZ2748d ago

the guy at Turn 10 could do that a game as in real life he would kill himself and others in the process LOL

First thing he'd be looking for on the dash is his rewind button.

jellybalboa2747d ago

the art guy and mazzinger u both deserve a bubble up!

badz1492748d ago

but this may be 1 of the reason we still not seeing GT5 on store shelves!

I was expecting him to at least get third. Oh well, good job Kaz buddy

Abriael2748d ago

I was hoping too, but given his starting position it was really impossible unless the ones that finished in front of him did some really serious errors. The Aston Martin that ended in third actually had some big problems, but it fell only from 1st to 3rd before recovering. There were 4 laps between them 2 hours from the end, so it was more or less impossible to catch up. However, overtaking 114 cars in a single race is simply epic :D
