Description:
is a former racing driver and businessman from Japan. He participated in two Formula One Grands Prix, debuting on 24 October 1976. He scored no championship points.

His nickname was and was Japanese 90cc and 125cc motocross Champion for Kawasaki in 1968 before switching to cars as a Nissan factory driver in 1969.

His two grand prix entries came in 1976 and 1977 at his home grands prix, both with Heros Racing. In the first of these, driving a Tyrrell, he retired having used up his tyre supply; in the second, he finished 11th in a year-old Kojima.

After winning the Japanese Formula 2000 championship in 1975 and 1977, he became the Japanese Formula Two champion in 1978, later winning the national F3000 title in 1987, 1990 and 1993. He followed that up with a Japanese Sports-Prototype Championship in 1991 and 1992. Like compatriot Hasemi, he continued his career racing Nissans, especially the Skyline GT-R and became synonymous with it, winning the Japanese Touring Car Championship in 1990 and also shared a winning Nissan with the aforementioned driver and Toshio Suzuki. His only serious world championship win was the 1985 WEC (World Endurance Championship) round of the Fuji 1000 km race which was boycotted by many competing teams due to torrential rain.

He retired from racing in 2002 and now continues to run his own Super GT team and his own Nissan specialised aftermarket parts company Impul. Son, Kazuki competes in Super GT, driving for his father's team.
