    I was linked to this video from the Formula Nippon.

    A crazy crash that one guy was very lucky to not be landed on!

    It all looked very stupid until that car got airborne. Luckily no one was hit.

    It was almost like a syncronised slide by those front 2 and caught out the following pair. How very bizzare and at the same time, very scary.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA OH MY GOD THAT WAS HILARIOUS.
    Talk about a clean sweep. This, my friend, is Japan. No explanations just enjoy.

    Formula Nippon has by far the most spectacular, astonishing and scary crashes in all of single seater racing.

    Good effort in the first one @magnificent-geoffrey. Not the best bit of avoiding action by the red guy!

    Aside from the obvious dangers, it’s always good to see a bit of synchronised spinning.

    What is a Nippon?

    Nippon is the transliteration of the Japanese word for Japan.

    Doesn’t really help with the Japanese drivers stereotype.

    Loved the pickup truck on caterpiller tracks! why has that not been shown on F1?

    One of my favourite things about Japanese motorsport is the commentators, who get incredibly excited at what’s happening on track.

    @magnificent-geoffrey Some of these are really scary. Feel like Formula Nippon (or Super Formula as it’s now called) could do with IndyCar-style wheel guards, though the new car for next season, also built by Dallara, doesn’t have anything like that.

    So wait, do all the crashes in Formula Nippon involve those red/orange cars? ;) Looks like that is the team Aguri Suzuki runs/ran.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with the genetics (squeezy eyes).
