Takumi Fujiwara (藤原 拓海, Fujiwara Takumi) is a former street racer and retired rally championship driver with a title and several records held, and currently Kanata Katagiri's mentor. He is mentioned in Chapter 8, and is briefly shown in Chapter 25.

Biography

Takumi Fujiwara left Japan for the United Kingdom at the age of 20 to participate in the British National Rally Championship, driving for Toyota. On his 3rd year in the championship, he is finally awarded the title. During his time in the British Rally, he took part in a variety of WRC events where he produced stable results. Eventually, after signing a contract with Toyota, the driveshaft to his car snaps during a pre-season test run, sending him off-course into a ravine and crashing heavily, where he sustained critical injuries. The crash forces him to retire from competitive racing and go into rehabilitation. Despite this, he still remained close to the sport. After his recovery, he travelled around the UK as a driving teacher giving lectures at racing schools, most notably at the Royal Donington Racing School (RDRS), where he met Kanata and eventually assumed the role of his mentor.

Information

Before signing up for the British Rally Championship, Takumi was a street racer who had illegally raced on the mountain passes of Gunma, Japan (and surrounding provinces). When he went to the UK and signed for the British Rally Championship, it was discovered that he had a weakness on gravel, but excels amazingly on tarmac; for which he is known to overspeed on such sections.
