The boy that dreamed F1 targeted that he would become a mechanic than a racer; one of the pit crew that changes tires as quickly as he can.When he continued to high school, his dream, life-long manufacturing and yearning for mechanic, expanded and he groped to enter a industrial high school, but his parents objected and talked him into abandoning it.
SASAKI, as he was, couldn’t but follow the parents’ emotion that they want their son to continue college from a general course of high school as they had a hard time.He continued high school, however he could not restrain his passion for manufacturing, he asked his teacher permission for a part-time worker that was prohibited in his school on the condition that he got target marks.
