The Honda development team today came out and said that it intends to put to the sword their competition with two new HPD prototypes. It’s clear that they are setting their ambitions pretty damn highly for 2015 with these two giant acquisitions into their racing team.
The door thumping arx04b complies with the most up to date regulations of the racing circuit. It also goes along way beyond the basic safety requirements of the competition, which involves setting up a safe rolling style hard top conversion. The particular competition that they intend to enter is the united sporting car champs world endurance race, the Euro Le Mans and the Le Men races over in Asia.
Scott sharp is one of the racers set to use the machine. He was clearly excited about it when interviewed recently. He said he looked forward to continuing his relationship with honda first off. He went on to commend them for their attention to design, safety of the driver and above all the performance of the machine. He said the alot of attention has also been paid to the aerodynamic performance of their cars which is probably one of the major reasons for their success for seven consecutive years. He also remarked that he was surprised about how long the same kind of design had been able to perform so well. This is why he is so confident in Honda as they design great race cars.
Scott went on to say that he is looking forward to continuing to drive these cars into the future and that he looked forward to more success going forward. In addition, he said he was looking forward to testing all the updates and upgrades that come with the new car.
So what’s the new Honda made of?
The new Honda sports a Honda HR28TT twin-turbo v six motor, together with the most advanced type of cockpit technology on the market that has been developed by honda performance and wirth-researchers. This team put together has proven to be very successful so far. Together they have one indy car championships, and le mans and the USA together with the FIA enduro championship of the world, and also the twenty four hour le mans race.
The two point eight liters twin turbo engine comes from the j35 line of motors. They are actually dumped into a lot of honda’s ordinary cars that you can see running about town in most big citys. Now coming in with wire-drive throttle body configuration and a air induction fresh air turbo system, the lag in the turbos is significantly reduced. This offers the driver in the race greatly enhanced performance, responsiveness and reliability that they can trust when they step on the gas it will go with a smooth power curve.
Honda’s extreme motorsport team started competing back in the year ’10 and have had good success since then. The team of drivers has also proven to be a good combination that seem to click well. They are scott Sharp, Ry Dalziel, Mr. Overbeek and Edward Browne. The team is now contemplating a run at the twenty four hour le mans race which will really test their metal. Good luck boys!
