Ryosuke Takahashi is one of the most skilled and famous racers in the series. He was first seen as a competitive driver hailing from Mt. Akagi, where he got given the nickname "Akagi's White Comet". After a few years on the street racing circuit, he gathered a group of talented racers to found the Akagi RedSuns along with his younger brother, Keisuke (this coined the nickname "The Rotary Brothers", as both drive rotary RX-7s).

Not long after formation of the team, Ryosuke initiates his 'Fastest in Kanto project' to become the fastest in all the prefectures that make up the Kanto region. This plan was abandoned after the team's encounter with Takumi Fujiwara on Mt. Akina. Instead, Ryosuke forms a new team and recruits Takumi along side Keisuke as the two drivers. This reason was to help reinforce his fastest Racer theorum (which he had though since he started racing) as well as becoming the fastest team in Kanto.

Outside racing, Ryosuke attends a medical college in Gunma with aspirations to become a doctor. It was here he had a quarral over Rin Hojo, another student from Kanagawa over a girl named Kaori. She ended up committed suicide, which caused the recluse of Rin for years following.
