During last night’s news stream by Goodsmile Racing, the design for this year’s Thailand Cheer version of Racing Miku 2019 was announced! The design by @Annin_Oiko features Racing Miku with the usual tanned look, along with a sailor-outfit inspired 2 piece bikini and umbrella. She’s absolutely cute!

This design will be featured in upcoming merchandise, as well as at this year’s Round 4 race in Thailand for the SUPER GT 2019 competition. A figure is also likely to be announced sometime later, so stay tuned for those updates!

Trivia: Thailand version Racing Miku has been a reoccurring idea since the first design in 2014.
