Yui fell in love with two wheels early. "When I was 5 years old, my father bought me a pocket bike. Immediately I become in love with riding the bike. Step by step, I improved my riding technic, and now I can join the Rookies Cup. I am so excited!"
At school her favourite subject is Japanese and perhaps English? When she is not racing she enjoys, "Listening to music and sleeping." Her hero is Valentino and she wants to be, "A strong rider!!!"
"During 2012 I learned that one of the important things is that I must take in a lot of information in a short time during the race weekend. I like the Rookies races because there is no difference of performance between the bikes, it is all down to the rider."
"For this year I want to get better results than 2012. I don't want to make the same mistakes as last year, especially crashing! Also I want to enjoy the racing more than last year."
"I want to be better Yui-chan than last year's Yui-chan!!"
