In 2016, I decided to reset my race career and chose the way to enter SRS-Formula (Suzuka Circuit Racing School Formula).
Thanks to the scholarship system given by SRS-F, I was able to participate in the FIA-F4 Japanese Championship 2017 with HFDP (HONDA Formula Dream Project).

Having made a great start by winning the opening race, I kept taking the lead in the Championship until the final round. Although I couldn’t win the Championship due to an unexpected incident and mechanical issues in the last two races, I feel proud of what I have done for the victory all through the season. My dedication on racing will never change and keep challenging as a racing driver.
Words can’t describe how I appreciate the great supports from my family, team staff, fans and everyone involved.
I hope to see you soon next year.

Thank you.
