"With my brother's influence, I started riding a pocket bike at three. It was so very interesting, so my father and I went to practice everyday without taking time off."

My mechanic and I ready for the Rookies Cup 2017

"This year I want to be Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup champion and Asia Talent Cup champion. Then I want to be a MotoGP rider soon, following excellent results this year."

"My best race was in the Qatar round of the Asia talent Cup in the beginning of 2017 because even though I did not win I was able to race perfectly as I planned."

In 2016 I made the course record of GP3 class in Motegi and Suzuka in other championships.
