Past Gas #191: JGTC: Every Car You Like Came from This Japanese Racing Series

By Donut Media

A dreary rain set in over the Fuji Speedway during the 1998 All-Japan Grand Touring Championship. A thick wall of fog and relentless, heavy rain blanketed the racetrack in almost unmanageable conditions. Then, an accident between a Porsche and Ferrari changed the course of Japanese racing forever. How did racing in Japan go from boring to world-wide phenomenon? How did punishing drivers that won lead to better racing? And, how did a 1997 Chevy Cavalier wind up in the middle of a Japanese race?
