News has just reached us that Mr. Top Secret himself, Kazuhiko "Smoky" Nagata, will not be able to make it to the Import Reactor, in Houston, as well as the Texas Mile this up coming weekend. I'll let Smoky explain:
"As you all know, Japan was hit by a big earthquake a few days ago and my company is north of Tokyo. Closer to the quake site and nuclear power plant. Until today, I was packed and still scheduled to go to Houston. I did not want to cancel the trip. It has been a very difficult few days for me because I'm was very worried for my employees and colleagues. They are scared about radiation poisoing. I should stay here with them in at this time of much trouble.
My car (the V12 Supra) was supposed to fly out of Narita Airport on Saturday evening. But because of the disaster, there are many problems with shipping now. So my car cannot make it to Houston until later. I am very sorry for this.
I was looking forward to coming back to Houston and meeting everyone again because of the warm welcome I had the last time. I was also looking forward to participating in Import Reactor and Texas mile. I am sad that I cannot make it now and disappointing everyone.
I explained the situation to John Leigh and he is very supporting. Please support him too.
When the problems with shipping is resolved, my car will go to Houston and I will come again to meet everyone.
We wish Smoky and Top Secret the best as they move forward into the recovery stage. We'll also be keeping up with Smoky and his Supra as news starts coming in when exactly he's coming to America later this year.
