By the way, surfing the Japanese site, i found the results for that race, he qualified 2nd and won......Wow nice way to debut with a new ride. Looks like the S960 is really capable

Well i agree with Rafael that it looks like a trend that alot of factory Mugen drivers are switching to other brands,i think its a great move for MR.Tanaka to have swithed over, that shows people that the 960 is a great car and it should not be overshadowed by the other brands..
