Hatsune Miku's design has been adapted into a Racing Queen version for each seasons since 2010. The designs are offically acknowledged as "Racing Miku" (レーシングミク) derivative and are based on Miku's attire.

The 2009 derivative is the only version of the Racing Miku derivatives which did not have an official illustration featured based on her, though it was featured in merchandise for that season. The unveiling of the Racing Miku derivatives only became a feature from the 2010 season onwards. All merchandise related to Good Smile Racing featuring Miku prior to the 2010 season, with the exception of the 2009 Racing Miku figurine, features Miku in her normal attire.

The 2008 season remains the only season where other Crypton Future Media Vocaloids (Kagamine Rin \ Len) on a Good Smile Racing related car.

In 2013, Miku also was featured with racing outfit in the Isle of Man motor cycling race, for this race Team Mirari were sponsored.[1] Miku also recieved a "Sepang" version showing bare toned skin as part of showing good health and promoting the design as "the Angel of summer".[2]

Racing Queen vers.Edit

Starting in 2010, the "Racing Queens" (レースクイーン ) found around the pit stops pre/post race also wear a manufactured version of the outfit. There have been, however, Vocaloid related outfits worn by the Racing Queens since 2008 with the 2009 'gals' proving quite popular.

The original 2008 Racing Queen trio were nicknamed the "MikuMiku☆gals" (ミクミク☆ギャルズ), this was also used as a nickname for the 2009 Racing Queens trio, the 2008 trio are also referred to as "the plain clothes MikuMiku☆gals".
