Good luck cracking the mystery of this crash.
Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima is probably still wondering how he wrecked his ride at New Zealand’s Race to the Sky. The legendary hill climber was running along just fine when his Super 86 (a heavily modified GT 86) started to come apart. Monster ended up losing his roof and wing before spinning off course and wrecking his entire car. For his part, Tajima seemed unfazed by the incident. A mere 30 minutes after the wreck he was cracking jokes and signing autographs.
Too much speed can be a bad thing, and it’s possible the Monster didn’t know his own strength on the straightaway. Check out the video and decide for yourself what happened.
