Own a piece of Japan Indy Car history by grabbing this vintage ARTA Autobacs Promotional Team shirt. This was a promotional item produced for the launch of their 2003 Indy Car campaign.
Autobacs Racing Team Aguri (ARTA) is a joint racing project formed between former F1 driver Aguri Suzuki and Autobacs Seven Co. in 1997. The team's original name was "ARTA F1 Project," but due to trademark claims based on the usage of the word "F1", the name has since been shortened to "ARTA". ARTA was the 2007 SuperGT GT500 series champion in both the drivers' and team championships.
ARTA first entered the IndyCar Series in 2003, backing a car driven by Japanese-American Roger Yasukawa that was prepared by Fernandez Racing. This car was called "Super Aguri Fernandez Racing" and Aguri Suzuki was listed as a team owner. Despite the partnership, Autobacs Racing Team Aguri didn't have a de facto ownership stake with Fernandez Racing. In 2004, Yasukawa was replaced by Kosuke Matsuura, who won rookie of the year honors for both the Indianapolis 500 and the league and finished fourth at Kentucky. Matsuura continued with Aguri in 2005 and 2006, scoring several top 10s but no top 5s.
