Last night, at 11.13pm precisely, we posted a news story about the extremely sad death of Toyota’s chief test driver, 67-year old Hiromu Naruse.
He was killed in a head on collision outside the Nurburgring, on the public road, having apparently been involved in a high-speed accident with a BMW, which was also being driven by a test driver.
At 8.21am this morning poster MattDB suggested that Autocar should “expose” what had happened. At 8.31am pabs then wrote; 67 years old! Maybe getting a bit too old for a test driver?At 8.46am ronmcdonald wrote; Not for your average Toyota customer it’s not.At 9.08am Gilesme wrote; Stuck accelerator?
Shame on the lot of you. And I mean that from the very bottom of my heart.
