Go Hojo (北条 豪, Hōjō Gō) is the Chief Driver of Sidewinder. He is the organiser of Kanagawa's four lines of defence, four teams intent on beating Project D, or, failing this, gathering enough information to help the next team beat them.
Biography[edit | edit source]
He seems to know Ryosuke Takahashi quite well. However, he does not have any past connections or quarrels with him. Instead, he knows him through his elder brother, Rin, who had a past quarrel (or connection) with Ryosuke alluding to a girl named Kaori. Hojo helps the Chief Mechanic of Sidewinder, Eiji Kubo, to evaluate Project D's weaknesses. Before the race, his older brother appears and tells 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 Takahashi 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, the main reason is that he wore out his rear tires.
When Shinji Inui lost the race to Takumi, Go Hojo confronts him on the loss, but was never angry at him and told Shinji that he still did his best.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Some translations of the series mistranslate Go's name (豪) as Tsuyoshi. This is because the kanji in his name can mean Tsuyoshi.
