I would be interested to know what caused the fuel leaks in both cars and whether it was the same problem for both.
If as stated there was no pad change then so much for the theory the brakes are too small.

Well I certainly can't disagree with that, despite my reservations that this was by no means a true "production" race.
I think in some ways the most amazing performance was the little 130is'. Without turbos - and hence the extent of performance enhancement the regulations afforded the 335s, WRXs and Evo - they flattened most of the rest of the field including all the big Fordens and a few of the AWD turbo cars too. Glad I didn't have to sit in the back of one for the 12 hours though!
Did you end up going to the race BTW?
