We're heading back to Bonneville SpeedWeek 2010 for today's Photo of the Day. This is the Dandy Tanaka FC RX7, owned by Toru Tokoyoda, a Japanese businessman living in Singapore at the time, and built by Dandy Tanaka, an accomplished Bonneville racer and member of the 200mph club. Dandy is credited by some sources for paving the way for Jun Auto's Koyama-san to take some of his companies legendary race cars to the Bonneville salt. Unfortunately, a couple of days after this photo was taken, the car was destroyed in a 240mph roll while being driven by Ray Shioi, who had taken over driving duties for the teams 2010 SpeedWeek campaign from Tokoyoda.
