I happened to stumble across this picture and holy shit this is so β€˜90s I just bombed Kuwait.

You’re looking at the second-placed finisher of the TI Circuit Aida Group A 300km, a round of the 1992 All Japan Touring Car Championship. The car is the #22 Object-T Nissan Skyline GT-R. The drivers were Kazuo Shimizu of Japan and none other than Tom Kristensen of Denmark, the most recent driver to get the title β€˜Mr. Le Mans.’ He’s the winningest driver in the 24LM’s history. Full results of the race are here, if you’re curious.

His greatest achievement though was piloting this wonderfully-painted R32. Clearly.
