"I'm the only Brit racing in Japanese Formula 3 this year and have become hugely fond of the way of life, culture and people. With that in mind I'd like see you guys come up with designs for the world's first race suit to be designed by you and worn by me at my final race of the season in front of tens of thousands of fans on the 17th and 18th October. I'd like to see designs that fit in with Japanese culture. Think cherry blossom, bonsai trees, ancient shrines, samurai, Buddhism and much, much more!! ... There is so much inspiration around the Japanese theme I'd really like you to use your imagination and come up with an edgy, unique and creative design that I'd be proud to wear. I'm really excited to see what you guys come up with." - Struan Moore
