Posted on February 6, 2018

Team FALKEN's Master Class pilot Yoshihide Muroya has placed second in the first race of this year's Red Bull Air Race World Championship in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

As the only pilot from Asia competing in the Master Class of the Red Bull Air Race Championship, Yoshihide Muroya won a personal best four out of eight races in last year's season as he soared to victory to become World Champion. In the first race of this year's season, Mr. Muroya once again demonstrated his fantastic high-speed, high-precision flying skills from the preliminary heat up through the main event to place an impressive 2nd for yet another podium finish. The next race will be held in April in Cannes, France, as Mr. Muroya attempts to soar toward victory with his sights set on capturing the World Champion title for the second year in a row.

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 his Team FALKEN for the fourth consecutive year.
