    On March 16th, Morning Japan Time…

    Mr. Sakurai of TRD Toyota Technocraft passed away.
    He was known recently as featured in Best Motoring Video “AE86 Club” as creator of Keiichi Tsuchiya’s Street AE86 and N2 Battle TRD AE86.

    IN the past, he has had a long career at TRD in both racing and street development, and was the ‘hand of god” at making N2 AE86 designs in the 80’s. Also having much to do with almost all Toyota race and sports cars, he was indeed one of the greatest assets to Toyota’s motorsports programs. Also, with rumors and ongoing preparation for AE86’s successor within a few years, it is unfortunate that he did not see or lead the project for this heart and soul car’s return to Toyota product line.

    Today we must mourn of a loss of a great hero, who brought the AE86 to glory…

    Mr.Sakurai, Rest in Peace.

    This news sourced from an email I received this morning from Japan. He died in the hospital bed, sufffering from recent complexities of his health.
    Please send your condolences here on this thread.
