300 Grand Prix for Fujinami
"I‰Ûªve been working really hard for this, the second round of the world championship," Fujinami said, "Motegi is like my home and I expect to be greeted by the largest number of fans that I have in the world. I‰Ûªm very motivated because also it will be my 300th world championship trial and no one else has arrived at that number yet. There is no pressure on me and I think that I can do well as I have trained very hard to be able to do it."
