80R was created as a way of documenting the people behind the niche sport of Japanese time attack. It is the published result of years spent accumulating information, forming sincere relationships, and an earnest dedication to racing in Japan. The celebrated racing driver, Nobuteru Taniguchi, was once quoted as saying that 80R was one of the most crucial corners at Tsukuba Circuit. While that may be true, it is just one of the 12 that compose the entire course. We are taking a similar approach to this new venture in print. With 80R we don’t have the intention to comprehensively cover the sport, but to provide a new, archival way of sharing stories and images. One that has yet to be explored for this type of racing. Something physical, offline, and easy to reference.
