Hana Sake Co., Ltd.
D1 driver Sayaka Shimoda has renewed her website and started selling original goods! Expanding the range of online activities through a business alliance with Hana Sake Co., Ltd., which supports athletes and influencers!
Hana Sake Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as our company) has signed a business support contract with D1 driver Sayaka Shimoda as part of our athlete influencer support project.
As a first step of support, in order to spread the activities of Sayaka Shimoda to as many people as possible, we have renewed the official website with mutual influx with SNS and multilingual support. In addition, we will support Sayaka Shimoda’s D2C business launch when the official website is renewed. By selling goods, we plan to increase opportunities for fans to be happy, and part of the profits will be used to fund activities as a D1 driver.
We have been supporting business development in collaboration with influencers and athletes for some time. I have felt that it is important to provide support that allows athletes and influencers to develop sustainable businesses, rather than financial support like a normal sponsorship contract.
Sayaka Shimoda, who has signed a contract this time, will participate in the D1 Grand Prix, the world’s highest drift series, as the only female driver from this year. It is showing momentum of breaking bamboo, such as acquiring . In addition, Sayaka Shimoda not only participates in drift competitions as a driver, but also actively disseminates information on Youtube and Instagram as a “drift entertainer” who cheers people up through drifting.
From November this year, it will appear in the drift game “CarX”, which boasts 120 million downloads worldwide, and will make its world debut in the game world.
I strongly sympathized with the stance of wanting to have a wider impact through my own activities, which led to the conclusion of this contract. Hana Sake will continue to support Sayaka Shimoda so that more people can get to know her.
[Message from Sayaka Shimoda]
This is Sayaka Shimoda, a drift driver.
With the support of Mr. Hana Sake, my website has been renewed. The first time I watched a motorsports event was the D1GP Odaiba match eight years ago in October.
Seven years have passed since that day, when I started chasing my dream of “I will be on this stage someday.”
We finally made it to this stage.
Now that I can run shoulder to shoulder with the athletes I admire, I am full of gratitude to everyone who fought, cried, laughed, and supported me until I came here.
The result of the best 8 in the third round of D1GP has been evaluated as the highest ranking record for D1GP women, but D1 is a sport that has no gender.
I will do my best to be a driver who can deliver the excitement of the first time I saw drifting in a battle with top drivers, not a woman, but a battle that is equal to men and women. increase.
I would appreciate it if you could support my activities like this through my new website.
