Just for fun, but here are the names of the "first 100 drivers".

The names of the drivers of the Tamiya RC models has gone from real racing legends on the early models to hilarious fake names on the later models. So here are the names. Where the drivers on "Box Art" are real persons, I have linked to Wiki-information about them.

Model no.
