It consists of a series of plane races where world-class pilots participate, specializing in high speeds and daring maneuvers at speeds exceeding 370 km / h. Officially recognized by the International Aeronautical Federation (FIA), the Red Bull Air Race World Championship is a tournament that tests pilots in terms of speed and accuracy of flight.
Honoring Falken’s sporting image, Sumitomo Rubber Industries LTD, sponsor of Yoshihide Muroya, the only Asian racing driver competing in the Red Bull Air Race Championship, is pleased to announce that Mr. Muroya, who flies for the Falken team, achieved the third place in the fifth race of the tournament, held last weekend of August 15 to 16 at the Ascort Racecourt in Berkshire, England.
Yoshihide Muyora is recognized in the world air racing scene for his excellent skills as a pilot, skills that have also led him to participate in various international competitions of great importance. Falken, on the other hand, is also a well-known brand in North America, Europe and now around the world for its high performance tires, developed with the latest and most innovative technologies.
Recognizing the strong compatibility between this remarkable pilot and Falken’s brand image, Sumitomo Rubber Indus-tries was pleased to sign a sponsorship agreement with Mr. Muroya, through which the brand has begun to offer support to its activities and careers aerial
In Ascort, and after having reached fifth in the preliminaries, Mr. Muroya managed to perform a very good performance during the first two rounds of the main event, earning a place in the “Final 4” or final round, where he would later achieve the third best time over the other riders, finally climbing to the podium for the first time this season. With careers still remaining, Mr Muroya’s expectations of success are great during the coming months.
