Toru Takahashi (racing driver)
Takahashi was killed in the fourth and final round of the Grand Champion Series race at Fuji Speedway, Japan, in 1983, at the age of 23. Exiting the high-speed Last Corner, his flat-bottomed car spun, lifted and flew off the track, slamming top-first into a crowd fence. One unknown female spectator also died in the accident. A chicane was installed in the final turn, and Hermann Tilke demolished the section in 2003 as part of a total circuit reconstruction.
