Here's a real obscurity from the past.
Who knows anything about Meiritsu Racing, who entered a car (a Tyrrell 007) for Kunimitsu Takahashi for the 1977 Japanese Grand Prix? It seems almost impossible to find much credible information on them.
I have found this link to an engineering and technology firm and wonder if it's the same -https://www.meiritsu...ng/profile.html
Quite a striking livery they had. Chassis is 007/5 and according to Allen at https://www.oldracin...m/tyrrell/007/5, it was still in Japan in 2014. As it was the same car driven by Hoshino for Heros Racing, the link might be there somewhat?
Takahashi had enjoyed a fantastic season in Top Formula in 1977, coming second in the series, despite being 37 years old at the time when he made his Grand Prix debut the choice to use him seems straightforward - adding some more local interest to swell the attendance.
