Yoshihide Muroya arrived in San Diego with a completely new look Edge 540 V3 raceplane. Gone is his former champagne-coloured scheme, and in its place the bright colours of the team's sponsor, performance tire company Falken. Muroya has kept his trademark red wheelpants which he has had since he began racing in the Red Bull Air Race. "I really like the new paint scheme," said Muroya. "We sanded off the old paint and applied this, so it might be lighter," he joked.
