About the FIA

Founded in 1904, the FIA’s initial aim was to bring coherent governance and safety to motor sport.
The FIA has since grown into a global organization that not only promotes motor sport, but also safe, sustainable and accessible mobility for all road users across the world. As such, the Federation works across three key interlinked areas of activity – Sport, Campaigns and Mobility.


About the SUNPROS

SUNPROS’s predecessor company was a Japanese automobile magazine company that has been in operation since 1947. Then started a business using video contents as a product from 1988, and started drift competition since 2001. This became the first drift competition in the world, and eventually spreads to the world.
Currently it operates the D1 Grand Prix, and is the cutting edge of drift competition development with the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF).
