Takumi Fujiwara

藤原拓海, Tak, The White Ghost of Akina
Car: Toyota Sprinter Trueno GTAPEX AE86 color: High Tech twotone Takumi Fujiwara is the son of Bunta Fujiwara the owner of a tofu shop in his hometown Akina. He rarely shows emotion. His best friend is Itsuki Takeuchi who is a racing fan. Takumi works parttime at a gas station with Itsuki along with Iketani who is a member of the local racing team the Akina Speed Stars. Takumi has been manipulated subtly by Bunta into developing driving skills without being fully aware of Buntas intent. Bunta aside Takumis driving technique is the best on Akina the very fact that he has managed to win races against far more powerful cars with his AE86 Trueno is testament to his driving skills. As a result of constant everyday practice and over 5 years of experience on Akina Takumi is able to adapt to nearly any situation that presents itself during a race with astonishing speed. One factor in his nearly unparalleled driving skills is his ability to visualize the road in his head thus making up for the lack of visibility no matter how dark the mountain pass may be. He is an instinctive rather than an intellectual driver. Although the mizutoshi technique is a great but difficult technique that his father taught him it lead him to many victories through out the story. Source: Wikipedia
