This is the fourth consecutive year of supporting Mr. Muroya, who won the World Champion title in 2017.

Mr. Muroya is once again the only pilot from Asia competing in the Master Class of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship.

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.

The global Falken brand is widely renowned for high-performance tires developed using the latest cutting-edge technologies and further refined through 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 brand image, Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd. is proud to continue supporting the team for the fourth consecutive year. Through their ongoing support of Mr. Muroya, they will continue to promote Falken's image as a youthful and energetic brand.
