[[folder:Hayato Kazami]]

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/JunichiKanemaru, Creator/ShinobuAdachi (young)


The main character of the series (aside from ''SIN''). The son of Hiroyuki Kazami, the designer and programmer of Asurada, Hayato becomes the driver of the car while delivering to the Fujioka track when the machine was attacked. Although he manages to bring the car to the Sugo team safely, his driving data is locked into the machine's computer, which leaves him no choice but to be the main driver for the team. Shortly after obtaining the "Super License" in the All-Japan Grand Prix, Hayato becomes the youngest CF racer ever.

In the main series, Hayato has the most World Championships with 4. He can go Zero and has mastered the techniques Inertial Drift and Lifting Turn, and once he uses them, these makes him almost impossible to be defeated.
