Go Hojo

Go Hojo (北条 豪 Hōjō Gō) is the Chief Driver of Sidewinder. He seems to know Ryosuke Takahashi quite well, however he does not have any past connections or quarrels with Ryosuke. Instead, he knows him through his elder brother, Rin. He had a past quarrel (or connection) with Ryosuke alluding to a girl named Kaori. Hojo helps the Chief Mechanic of Sidewinder named Eiji Kubo to evaluate Project D's weaknesses. Before the race, his older brother appears, and says Go to have fun in his battle. Eiji told him to use their plan successfully for the first round. However, Hojo didn't use the plan as he should, so they ended up doing a second battle. What's worse was that Keisuke kept on speeding his ride to lose sight of him. In the end, Hojo lost the race after he spun out while engaging himself to keep up his ride against Keisuke, main reason is that he wore out his rear tires. Go was nicknamed "Tsuyoshi" by Kubo.
