My condolences go out to their families. I read the article about his car in Super Street called "WTF, OMG, LOL!" It was a great looking car and he was the only one with the cohones to drift that thing. I want the help of the admins to maybe do some sort of "shrine" or a special day dedicated to him. Maybe we can get his families address and maybe send them some cards. Im serious about all those ideas and maybe someone can help us achieve it.

My condolences to his family as well. It's a shame to lose such a talented driver. I also agree with trying to send out some kind of card. It would be nice for his family to know that he was this respected.

idk

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name' sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

from all of us at team silentstyle and euroPORT we wish the best for ryoji's family and close friend's hope the roads are paved in gold.
