The All Japan GT Championship had all the rad race cars | Video

Where could you find a Toyota Supra battling against a McLaren F1 on track? The All Japan Grand Touring Car Championship, of course.

This clip comes from round two of the 1996 season at Fuji Speedway, and it just might showcase one of the raddest collections of high-horsepower race cars ever assembled.

My first introduction to the JGTC stuff was Gran Turismo, and then in the pages of SCC and SS mags

Awesome looking cars, really cool stuff. And, as a SW20 owner, I always thought it cool that the Altezzas and Supras ran the 'same' engine that I had/have ha

Loved the magazine, Super STreet not as much.

I actually am reading through 3 dozen that I just got shipped to me. I enjoy seeing these 20 year old magazines and the trends at the time. SCC had good tech info too.

So cool.  Interesting that there is a mix of H pattern and sequential shifters.

What car in there had a sequential? Those would have been reasonably cutting edge in the mid 90's, no? Pretty sure the Mclaren spun because of a poorly timed downshift into turn 1 there, something I don't think a sequential would cause.

Any race with a Calsonic GTR is very cool.

the 300ZX was a spare chassis built by Clayton Cunningham Racing for IMSA. It never raced in the US before going to Japan.

I remember drooling over a set of Enkeis every month in SCC that I wish I could find for my FD.

For me I had my heart set on a set of Konig Wheels, MP3. I didnt, yet, know about the Advan SA3-R ha
