Dai enjoyed a successful 2008 season, taking 2nd place in the Red Bull World Championships and finished in 4th overall in the ultra competitive Formula D Series. For 2009, with the support of Team Falken and Discount Tire, Dai's expectations are set higher, as he is earnest about moving up several notches and scoring top place in more rounds and finishing on the top rung of the series championship.

"I feel so happy that I can participate as a driver for Team Falken," Dai notes. As popular with the fans as he is with his fellow drivers, Dai states, "I want to please our drift fans this year making use of my skills developed from my many past experiences. At the same time, for my new team, I want to do my best to be able to end this season with the best result for myself!"
