Kojima_KE007 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I am glad that the info I provided has helped. (^^)

The chassis number 03 is currently in our associates' garage in Japan. I do have acouple of photos but as I do not have the permission from the owner himself to publish them, I will not publish this time.

It did race in the Grand Champion series in 1972 from round 2 to 5 driven by Noritake Takahara but it did not race at all in 1973 (Japanese Auto Technic magazine).

As the Grand Champion race was only run at Fuji Speedway, the body was slightly modified to suit the very fast and flowing circuit configuration.

Since then, it has always remained in Japan.

Another interesting point is that, the bell housing of the T280 (chassis number 03) was used on Kojima KE007 and KE009 Formula One chassis.

Best regards
