A remarkable first time feat! Ai Miura, an employee of EXEDY, is the first woman to ever take first place in the Japanese Formula 3 Championship N Class
On April 13th, Ai Miura, an employee who works in our CSR ・ Public Relations Department, competed in the 2nd round of the Japanese Formula 3 Championship and took home first for the N Class. This is an incredible accomplishment, especially considering that this is the first time that a female driver has done so at the Japanese Formula 3 Championship.
Miura, who placed third in the previous round, took the lead from the very start of the second race. She stayed in the lead throughout the entire eace, completing each of the seventeen laps without ever giving up her position for an instant, ultimately crossing the finish line in first place.
