RED BULL AIR RACE
Mr. Muroya is once again the only pilot from Asia competing in the Master Class of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. Having newly decked his race plane out in FALKEN Motorsports colors from the second race of last year’s tournament, Mr. Muroya went on to win four of the eight races in the series, including the race held in Chiba in his home country of Japan. As a result of his strong performance throughout the season, he accomplished the momentous feat of becoming the first Asian pilot to win the World Champion title.
Our global FALKEN brand is widely renowned for high-performance tires developed using the latest cutting-edge technologies and further refined through our active participation in competitive motorsports and ongoing efforts to fulfill the exacting demands of global automakers. Meanwhile, Mr. Muroya is an outstanding pilot whose hard-won skills have taken him to competitions around the world. Recognizing the strong compatibility between this remarkable pilot and FALKEN's own brand image, Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd. is proud to continue supporting the team for the fourth consecutive year. Through our ongoing support of Mr. Muroya, we will continue to promote FALKEN’s image as a youthful and energetic brand.
