“I've never driven at the Nürburgring before, so I'm really looking forward to the event in September,” said the Japanese driver.

“I can't wait to drive around it in my HONDA NSX GT3 Evo, which is an incredible car and a proven race-winning machine at the highest level of GT3 competition.

“The Nordschleife is a legendary circuit, I just experienced it on the Gran Turismo videogame and already enjoyed it a lot.”

Red Bull’s show runs and festivities at the Ring will take place on Saturday, September 9 – a week after the Italian Grand Prix at Monza – just ahead of the popular 12-hour race of the Nürburgring Endurance Series event that will kick off later in the day.
