This season once again, Honda's
name is being written in the record books of motorcycle racing. From the pinnacles
of WGP, WMX and WCT to
the Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance Race, we've been waving the victory flag all year.
Ever since our first entry into Formula One racing in 1964, Honda has collected
a wealth of honors. 2003 marks the fourth year in Honda's third era of Formula
One racing and we're propelling the two-car B.A.R. team with a new RA003E, a lighter,
more compact engine is showing remarkably improved power and torque outputs. This
year also signals Honda's entry into the IndyCar series as an engine supplier.
Run exclusively on oval courses, IndyCar racing represents a new challenge for
Honda Performance Development (HPD) and technical partner Illmor Engineering,
joint developers of the new HI3R-type V8 engine supplied to five cars on three
teams.Honda is also supporting the 'Formula Dream' series as a training ground
for the Formula One drivers of tomorrow.
