ENEOS continues its partnership with Daijiro Yoshihara in Formula DRIFT – a relationship which began in 2017.
Dai was the 2011 Formula DRIFT champion, and has been a consistent points scorer since the series began in 2004. In fact, Dai is considered a mainstay in the sport and is one of only four drivers who has competed at the highest level since the series’ inception.
In addition to his drift career, Dai recently competed in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia series, regularly participates in Time Attack events and even offers driving instruction. In 2019, ENEOS supported Dai’s ambitions to conquer the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. After suffering transmission problems at his first attempt, he would return in 2020 and win the Unlimited Class title.
Dai has a lengthy association with ENEOS. As a young man in Japan, he worked at one of the company’s gas stations, with his earnings helping to fund his driving career. We are proud to continue our partnership and we’re confident of more great moments ahead!
