RIP to Atsushi Kuroi



he's former D1GP champion and Team Toyo Japan driver...
he passed away on 1st of feb was killed in a motorcycle accident in Japan.
From 2001 he campaigned a Nissan Silvia PS13 and a Nissan 180sx RPS13 in his history with the series.
Kuroi was popular not just in Japan, but in all the countries where he drove. Anyone who's seen him drive knows the kind of talent this man had behind the wheel of his Nissan One-Via. Besides being known as a great driver, he also made a name for himself with his River Side tuning shop in the Osaka area.
