Ryo Mizuno (Competing in JRR JSB1000 class for MuSASHi RT HARC-PRO. Honda)

“Last year I race in the Suzuka 8 hours for the first time. I’m looking forward to race this year for #634 HARC-PRO. I moved to the JSB1000 class this year, so I’ll be racing on a bike I’m accustomed to, with the same team, but I also feel the weight of responsibility. Our goal is to win, but I’m still learning with each race, so we’ll first aim as a team for the podium. I look forward to your support.”

Dominique Aegerter (Competing in MotoGP Moto2 class for Kiefer Racing)

“For the past three years I have race in the Suzuka 8 hours for Thomas Suzuki-Rowe Honda, and we’ve been 2nd and 3rd on the podium. This year I’m looking forward to joining HARC-PRO. this year, who have won the Suzuka 8 hours three times. Honda’s factory team is back, and our competition is also well prepared, so we’re in for a tough race, but we’re aiming for the top of the podium.”

Patrick 'PJ' Jacobsen (Competing in WSB for TripleM Honda World Superbike Team)

“I’m thrilled to be able to race for HARC-PRO., who have such an impressive track record at the Suzuka 8 hours. I first competed in the Suzuka 8 hours in 2016, but my results were not good. My partner at the time, Dominique [Aegerter] has been on the podium in the Suzuka 8 hours, so that’s encouraging. And with Ryo Mizuno, we’re undoubtedly headed for good results as long as we build on each other’s strengths.”
