Honda has released a video called “Why we Race.” The title is taken from an impassioned speech founder Soichiro Honda himself back in the day. Honda’s actual words is played over archival footage of Honda’s racing successes (and failures) from bikes at the Isle of Man to F1 cars at Monza, making for an inspiring picture of Honda’s racing history.
“Why do we race?” Honda asks. “It’s not simply a competition. We are operating a rolling laboratory. It is groundwork for creating the best car in the world. It has to be, and can only be Honda.” Though the source isn’t identified, it sounds like an address to Honda employees from the 1960s. It’s worth a view, even if you’re not a Honda head.
Meanwhile, Honda Japan has released another video showing victorious moments from its recent racing activities. It seems that Honda is really trying to push its rich motorsports heritage.
