Last month, it emerged that the eponymous Kazumichi Goh team would split from previous partner Team Mugen to fight for the best series of single Japanese with two cars in 2022.
Honda junior Ren Sato and his rookie Atsushi Miyake have signed as the team’s drivers.
Now the team has revealed that the №53 car, driven by Sato, will be painted in the famous colors of Red Bull, and the 20-year-old Japanese racer will also be part of the junior Red Bull team.
The sister car of № 55 former SRS-F Miyake graduate will work in a predominantly gray-and-white livery.
Both cars will be operated by Team Servus, which in recent seasons has mostly worked on the 15th side of the Mugen garage, as well as the ARTA Honda SUPER GT team.
It was also revealed that former Honda Formula 1 boss Masashi Yamamoto was taken on board to work alongside team boss Kazuhira Ikeda as team director.
Goh’s statement said the team “expecting Yamamoto’s leadership to help the team support young drivers, hoping that “the team led by Yamamoto will eventually win the world title. ”
“First, I would like to thank the owner of the team, Mr. [Kazumichi] Goh and the director of the Ikeda team for welcoming me as the team director, “Yamamoto commented.
“Apart from total dedication to every race throughout the season, I want to ensure that we share the excitement with our motorsport fans and that we continue to build and enhance motorsport culture so we can deliver more audiences.”
Go’s association with Red Bull continues the relationship between the energy drink company and Super Formula, which dates back to 2017, when Mugen expanded to the second car for now – AlphaTauri Formula 1 driver Pierre Gasley.
Nirei Fukuzumi, Dan Tiktum, Pata O’Ward and Yuri Vips participated in the championship afterwards with the support of Red Bull.
It also raises the prospect of Red Bull re-sending one of its international juniors to Super Formula 2023 without doing so, as COVID-19 did not allow Vips to take a place at Mugen in 2020.
The 2022 Team Goh colors will be unveiled to the public at Suzuka next weekend during a Motorsport Thanksgiving Thanksgiving event that precedes the March 7-8 pre-season test.
