BLACKBIRD AUTOMOTIVE JOURNAL VOL 9: BUSHIDO

(Spring 2016)

In this volume of Blackbird Automotive Journal, we turn an eye closer to home in an effort to study and celebrate some of the milestones in Japanese motorsport – a history rife with successes and failures. With the GT-One gracing the cover, we speak to Toshio Sato, President of Toyota Motorsport on the marque’s entries and exits from the motorsport world, culminating in the new WEC contender – the TS050. We also take a look at arguably one of the most coveted cars of the fabled Group C era, Mazda’s formidable 787B and end with a dissection of Honda’s disastrous return in today’s Formula 1. Staying in the region, we travel to last year’s Macau Grand Prix to cover the GT world cup, speak to Rahel Frey – the Swiss Audi Works girl driver who’s leaving tracks in the Audi LMS Cup, before rounding up the volume with some spirited driving in the new McLaren 570S and Porsche’s latest showroom blow-out – the Cayman GT4.
