Each fall Honda Racing puts on something called Thanks Day at their Twin Ring Motegi complex. Any machine that has fought to bring home a checkered flag for Honda is honored, from MotoGP bikes to SuperGT NSXs to F1 cars. This year it took place on the November 24, just a few days before our Thanksgiving Day, but the weather didn’t cooperate, making it far too risky to run vintage F1 cars on the track. In past years, however, it was not a problem. Check out the 2007 Thanks Day in this Urban Racer article. Best of all, it’s called “Thanks Day” as a show of appreciation for fans of the Honda marque. We know we’d be very thankful if our favorite automakers held events like this stateside.
In any case, we want to wish you, dear JNCers, a very happy Thanksgiving! Thank you for reading JNC and thank you for continuing to carry the old school torch for our rare and often unloved cars!
