Last year it was Schnitzer BMW against Toyota in the All Japan Touring Car Championship and Honda was almost nowhere but look at them now. Naoki Hattori who went to Fuji fresh from the win in the GT race in Suzuka last weekend managed a surprising double victory in his Jaccs Accord in the JTCC opener. Toyota and Nissan have a lot of catching up.
