Message from the official support team of Ryo Hirakawa
Support Team Leader
Mr. Hitoshi Aoki
I am pleased to announce that I will be the support team leader for Ryo Hirakawa, who is aspiring to become an F1 racer.
Ryo started karting at the age of 13 and has quickly worked his way up to the pinnacle of Japanese motorsport,
Super Formula in a short time.
We hope that in the future he will follow in the footsteps of Takuma Sato and Kamui Kobayashi as an F1 racer.
His enthusiasm for motorsport and his ability to gather the cooperation of those around him are genuine.
Let us all support Ryo Hirakawa and send him off to the world of F1. I am looking forward to working with him.
Supporting Member Representative
Mr. Hideaki Furutani
We first met Hirakawa in 2010.
We met Hirakawa at the "Hiroshima Toyopet Drive Kingdom", which was an F3 car demonstration event, organised by our company in his home town of Hiroshima.
"We want more people to experience the appeal of cars and increase the number of car fans."
Hirakawa agrees with our wish and participates in this event every year.
The cars he demonstrates have steadily improved from F3 every year, In 2015, they were upgraded to Super Formula, the top category in Japan.
This made our customers very happy.
His attitude is one of the most attractive features of Hirakawa, who has an exceptional talent and continues to work hard to achieve even greater heights.
This is one of the main attractions of Hirakawa.
As a person who loves cars as much as Hirakawa does, I will support a racing driver Ryo Hirakawa together with you all.
