‘We are delighted to support Honda Cars in 2011 season. The CR-Z is a great looking sporty car and the marriage of Honda automotive hybrid technology and our race bred technology from Moto GP is a perfect match'.

'CR-Z has been designed as the first sporty hybrid coupe to dispel the myths that hybrids are not fun to drive. The CR-Z has a 3-mode drive system, providing an entertaining driving experience combined with low emissions. Being part of MotoGP this season further helps emphasise the message that the CR-Z is fun to drive, and will raise awareness of the car to a wider audience'.
