2016 Tokyo Auto Salon: Honda HSV-010 to make its appearance at the Raybrig booth

Raybrig will have an exhibition at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon to be held in Makuhari Messe beginning January 15. In addition to exhibiting the Honda HSV-010 that competed in the 2013 Super GT, they will conduct a talk show by Takahashi Kunimitsu.

Raybrig is a brand under Stanley Electric. In addition to a dedicated corner for LED bulbs and LED lamps, the exhibit will include the Raybrig HSV-010 displayed at the front of the booth. The high-pitched exhaust sound on its distinctive sharp body proved to be hugely popular back in the day. This machine has since been retired due to the changes made to the GT500 class regulations. Because there are only few events like this where it can be exhibited, this is a rare opportunity for GT fans to see this good old machine up close again.

The machine won’t be just an exhibit item at the event; it is slated to have grade school students and younger children experience riding the cockpit of the Raybrig HSV-010.

Furthermore, a talk show will be conducted and hosted by Takahashi Kunimitsu, former racing driver and general manager for Team Kunimitsu. Naoki Yamamoto and Takuya Izawa ranked third in the 2015 series. Hence he might discuss something about the last season, or his enthusiasm towards this season.

A talk show by the 2015 Raybrig race queens who have supported the team in all races will be held as well, and as early as January 16, the 2016 race queens will be announced.
