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.
These glowing headers… Wonderfull.
By the way, great music in final part. 😉
This is why I own an older Honda.
(Honda needs to get this back into it’s production cars).
