This is more appropriate for CMS, but I thought I'd post over here...

I just stumbled upon this lovely series from the 70's and '80's. From the looks of things the Datsun B110's, B210's, and B310's were the car to have with some Toyota Starlets and Corollas thrown into the mix.

Check out some of the video's.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRo8wRXDmJc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxMpeNXwnx8

.. listen to those little A-Series Datsuns scream to 10,000+rpm!!!

Apparently, a lot of these cars survived are now running in JCCA (Japanese historic series), with some pretty big fields. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pr-EbrTA4Tc

I'm no fanboi, but this is a pretty cool. It's a lot like the SCCA B-Sedan and C-Sedan from 70's and GT4-GT5 of the 1980's.

In a side note, here is some Toyota Starlet Cup video... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Q_0o3O5ZU4 (this is from 1984, not 1994 like the video says).

They sure don't build tracks and cars like they use to.

The speed at which they go barrelling into the corners is pretty amazing. And when that one Starlet spins out on the first lap, the cars behind all dart around him like little wasps, each avoiding a collision. Cool stuff.

That's way more entertaining than anything you can see on TV nowadays. Even before the Speed channel switched to showing crap 99% of the time.

I've seen this video before but still love seeing it again.
