Takachiho "Taki" Inoue (井上 隆智穂, Inoue Takachiho; pronounced TAH-kee IN-oo-ay; born 5 September 1963 in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan) is a former Japanese Formula One driver who competed in the sport from 1994 to 1995, driving for Simtek and Footwork.

Inoue is, perhaps, best known for two freak incidents involving course cars during the 1995 season. During practice for the 1995 Monaco Grand Prix, Inoue's car was being hauled back to the pits having stalled, when it was hit by a course car. A few races later, in Hungary, Inoue's car broke down and caught fire. The Japanese driver, in an attempt to put out the flames, then inadvertently stepped out in front of a medical car which had been sent out to assist. The car hit Inoue and knocked him to the ground, injuring the driver's leg.


Formula One CareerEdit

Inoue made his Formula One début at the 1994 Japanese Grand Prix for Simtek, retiring from the race by spinning off on lap 3.

In 1995, he signed for the Footwork team, mostly known for two bizarre incidents at Monaco and Hungary. When his team-mate Gianni Morbidelli was replaced by Max Papis, Inoue would sometimes out-pace him.

On January 1996, it was announced that Inoue will be driving for the Minardi team. However, one of his personal sponsors puled out at the last minute, and Inoue withdrew from Formula One.
