The awards are given to people who have dedicated themselves to promoting the popularity of automobiles and motor sports. This year's recipients for each division were: Ken Yokoyama (Car Culture Enthusiast), Aguri Suzuki (Racing Legend), Kazutoshi Mizuno (Designer/Engineer), Toshiaki Kurosawa (Excellence in the Car Industry) and Kenta Yamashita (Young Hope).
Sakai received the award two years ago and is now a member of the selection committee. Ebihara, popularly known as "Ebi-chan," said she found men who drive fast cars sexy.© Japan Today
