TAKATA all around you

Racer´s Voice

I´ve used Takata full harness seat belts since 1998 when SUPER GT was known as the Japan GT Championship.
In 2002 in Formula NIPPON, I requested we use the Takata harness. At a race in Fuji Speedway that year, I had a major crash, which caused a compression fracture in my lumbar vertebrae. I strongly believe that the Takata harness saved me from a career-ending injury.
In addition to its safety, the Takata harness ensures minimal loosening and provides a secure hold against G forces. It goes without saying that the Takata harness gives me confidence when I´m battling on the racetrack.
