2002 Reynard 2KL Lyons

Japanese major formula championship, now known as Japanese Super Formula, was held in 1996 – 2012 as Formula Nippon. In the 2002 season all teams had to use Reynard chassis and Mugen Honda (Mugen MF308) engines. British driver Richard Lyons drove the 2000 car (2KL) for DoCoMo Team Dandelion Racing, replacing Frenchman Jonathan Cochet from round 3. For Lyons, who grew up in British minor formulas (F Vauxhall and F Palmer Audi) and drove in Formula Renault 2000, it was his second season in Formula Nippon. His best finish was 2nd place at Sugo, and Lyons finished the championship 10th. He drove Formula Nippon in Japan from 2001 to 2009 winning the Championship in 2004 and finishing third in 2005.
