VIDEO: The Challenging Spirit of Honda

Honda RA272 Mexican Grand Prix finish line

At the Tokyo Motor Show last November Honda released a short video called “The Challenging Spirit of Honda.” Chock full of 1960s racing footage from Honda’s first foray into Formula 1, it begins with Old Man Soichiro’s world-beating RC motorcycles and culminates with engine testing in preparation for its 2015 return to F1.

Though the video is narrated in Japanese, the rarely seen archival clips documenting a stratospheric three-year rise from bike builder to F1 world champions are a must-view for any Honda enthusiast.

    This is why I own an older Honda.
    (Honda needs to get this back into it’s production cars).
