Comment from Director Shinichi Ito

This will be Astemo Honda Dream SI Racing’s second year to compete in the Suzuka 8 Hours.
This year, with the addition of Mizuno and the renewal of the team structure, the team has become even stronger than last year. In addition, we have been able to strengthen our cooperation with Hitachi Astemo in the areas of control, suspension, and brakes, and we are building a team that can win more than ever before. As "One Astemo," we will work as a team and aim for the podium.
We look forward to your continued support for Astemo Honda Dream SI Racing.
