He tried is absolute best, even when the job became way outside of his expertise he didn't give up. I like the mechanics doing their best to comfort him when he gets overwhelmed by it all.

But now we have completely deviated from the main topic and are basically doing the same thing you did to cjjesse, another answer like that and I guess you'll be happy to know I won't answer back.

fantastic determination to try and get back in the race such a shame and also love the fact that he still has the number 74 of Daijiro Kato on his helmet :D

GROUNDBREAKING!? Yeah, it's certainly breaking the ground 'cause it's not moving.

The Deltawing was there to revolutionize the world of racing. Motoyama's attempts to bring the car back to life are heroic deeds in my books.

Lol oh no anything but that! Please stay awhile and attack more view points i never stated i had.

You think of yourself an awful lot don't you. Enough to put a label on yourself. Stop being so self-absorbed.

Here's a funny thing, I have friend that went to the military. Do you know they basically send the stupid ones in first? Sounds like an extreme presentation. But from the little he told me about the tests and training (since it seems it's a "secret") that's how things work.

The Toyota took it out on the restart after the safety car trying to overtake an Audi causing the Delta Wing to hit the concrete wall on the outside of the Porsche curves which isn't too far from the pits.

You're still doing that, you're still trying to assume a superior position with nothing to back it up. First, this isn't a political debate, second, you don't know anything about him to make a quick conclusion like "he won't change he's ignorant view" and third, it's not an ignorant view. Many solders are people that could not afford college and/or wanted an easy way out where you work for the military a few years and then live with very good benefits the rest of your life.

Well it's not all fan favorite, I'm not in love with the Chevrolet / Aston Martin Deltawing. That's right, fun fact, Nissan didn't make 1 part of the car. Its built off a tub from the old Aston Martin AMR-One, the body is all fabricated in America, and the engine is an engine from a Chevy Cruz World Touring rebranded a Nissan. You may have heard them COMPARING it to a Juke engine, and although it shares similar elements it was never actually touched by Nissan.

I don't know much about racing or anything can some explain the context of this video?

What did the driver do that was brave or noble? He didnt design the car or build it or save lives preventing it from blowing up and killing people. He didnt show incredible courage either by simply trying to fix it. You have an extremely lame view of what qualifies as a hero. Driving is his job. If one of your tools breaks at work and you try to fix it you arent a hero, you're doing your job.

Families that love that person are obviously going to sugar coat this saying how they are protecting the country and giving up their lives for their loved ones. Tell me, what are they protecting them from? do you even know? or are you going to tell me terrorists?

what an absolute petrolhead, thats motivation as well as heroic. anyone know what damage caused it to not be able to carry on? at that point of the track he'd have to do nearly a whole lap back to the pits

I cried, it was so emotional. That scene at 1:30 was beautiful. He knew in his heart that it was the car time. So much passion.

How does a single-seater have any more protection for the driver's legs than the Delta Wing? LMP tubs pass the same crash tests as F1 tubs do.

Hi, yes, its a rule - they can only help in the pits. ^DP

Should have had a Ford or a Chevy engine in it. They wouldn't have had to take it easy thus getting in the way.

More appropriate in this case would be "watch out for idiots in Toyotas"

Why was they not allowed to tow it back to the pits?

For racers, who love cars and love the art of racing and turning corners, the cars are the beauties and the racing is the joy. So to race for a full 24 hours with high speed cars and enjoying technique for them is wonderful the same as you have unending love for something or will have someday.So what makes it heroic is that the car just got old and since he loves racing he didn't want to give up on it and thus he was crying and it was that constant try that is considered heroic.

he would be remembered through the history of le mans.it isn't only the car has a unique design, but the spirit of giving back life to the crashed deltawing.great job satoshi!

Side note: people who put down random people with allegations of homosexuality themselves, tend to be insecure about their own sexuality, and think about gay sex far more than straight people who are secure in their sexual identity.

Plus I still don't trust the safety. Your really telling me that if is stoped across the Mulsanne and a LMP1 car hits it in the middle front of the right side the driver's fully exposed legs are going to be fine? That I just can't believe.

That's what technical sports are all about. You can't see things like that in Formula 1 or NASCAR anymore... Fighting doesn't means that they knock out each other or they pass each other like they are crazy. Fighting means that they want to race, like this little japanese.

About what? If you really think this was "heroic" you're fuckin retarded

This is his life. Racing is what he does. This is not heroic as in war hero or a fireman. This car took months of work and testing and it got wrecked. If he was able to get to the pits then they could've fixed it and finished the race. The whole thing about this car is more from less. Nissan wanted to prove it was fast and efficient with a small engine. A podium finish would have proven that. hero(n.)- a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.

Most of the time, active Formula 1 drivers aren't allowed by their teams to participate in the 24h of Le Mans. On a side note: I think Kobayashi is a great driver, but don't forget he can also be quite reckless sometimes.

Absolutely heroic, I can not express myself, I cannot describe this with words, I'm absolutely speechless, A man tries to fix a completly wrecked car for 2 hours. He's most defintely a hero.

Never said anything about a black heart, and last I checked I'm far from the only person on earth to have ex issues so yeah don't make such a big deal about it. I only mention it because you for some idiotic reason come up with the baseless assumption that I am self absorbed. Sure people can label me, doesn't mean I have to listen to their labels when I'm secure with my own. I'm starting to wonder if you're trying to push some insecurities you have onto me.

But it's not completely ruined now, is it? This isn't the Mona Lisa we're talking about here. The car can be easily duplicated, as long as you've got cash (and they do). To say it was completely ruined, not only the car had to have blown up, but all the technology and blueprints behind it had to have wiped out. This is not the tragedy you're making it out to be. He couldn't complete the race. Big deal. Better luck next year.

You're truly a fucktard for this one by the way. Knowing you could die and signing up anyways to do a dangerous job to protect your country and the ones you love is much more than "just dying" even if when you get to the war zone you are killed before firing a shot. You look more and more ignorant every time you comment on here. Your view on life absolutely baffles me. You argue the driver is heroic then say a dead soldier didnt do anything but die.....wow
