The 2011 Formula Drift Series Champion enters his sixth year as part of the Falken Factory team. "Dai" is a drift veteran among his Falken colleagues with more than 13 years of drifting experience, having started in his native Tokyo. He'll chase the 2014 Championship in his SPD Motorsports built Falken Tire / Discount Tire Subaru BRZ. Yoshihara is considered one of the most consistent drivers in the Series. In addition to the 2011 Formula Drift Series Championship, Dai has overall finishes of 4th Place 2010, 4th Place 2008, and 3rd Place 2007. While away from the track, Yoshihara leads an effort to support and restore Japan after the March 2011 disaster. All proceeds from his charity rfjp.org, are donated to Japanese Red Cross Society.
