In love with Honda’s HSV-010 GT race car replacement for the NSX in Japan’s Super GT Series? Then you won’t want to watch this. At the very first race of the season at Suzuki, three of the GT500 class cars collided on the front straight, taking out two in spectacular fashion.
The video shows the No. 32 Epson HSV-010 the No. 8 ARTA HSV-010 and No. 18 Weider Honda come together in a sandwhich, resulting in both No. 8 and 18 hitting the tire wall at the end of the straight. Takashi Kogure, who was piloting the No. 18 car, was the pole sitter for the race and was poised to contend for the top of the podium.
Instead, the HIS Kondo Nissan GT-R took the checkered flag, with the top Honda (the No. 100 Rabrig car) placing 3rd.
See after the jump for the video and plenty of slow motion replays.
