We are very happy to have Hitachi Astemo, Ltd. as our partner for this season, and we are ready to start as "Astemo REAL RACING". The entire team will be working hard to make this new season a memorable one.
Last year, we were able to win two races as a team for the first time in a single season, but we were not able to win the series title. However, we were able to improve certain strengths that had been lacking until now. We will do our best to win the championship this year.
