In Honda, Racing and motorsports are deeply in Honda’s DNA and that is why it is Honda’s Reasons to Exist! For the Honda Racing Team, Super GT is not just a battle of speed, but also a battle of minds.
The five Honda Racing Teams remain the same as last year. They are Weider Honda Racing, Autobacs Racing Team Aguri, Keihin Real Racing, Team Kunimitsu and Epson Nakajima Racing. All five teams participate in six domestic circuits in Japan with only one race being held overseas – the Sepang International Circuit, Malaysia. Most teams have familiar faces in their drivers’ line up. Only ARTA (Autobacs Racing Team Aguri) is proudly introducing two new drivers: Hideki Mutoh and Takashi Kobayashi.
Hideki Mutoh returns as driver following his debut in the Super GT back in 2006 when he scored one win that year driving the NSX for the Nakajima Racing Team. He said, “I will utilize all the experience I gained in the US. It is also a new challenge for me since the car and tyres are different from 5 years ago.” His driving partner, Takashi Kobayashi also expressed that, “Last year’s pole-position was great and I have to thank the team and machine’s ability. But I have more to learn and it will not be easy. I aim to get a win this year.” He was one of the drivers who drove ARTA HSV-010 GT in last year’s Round 6 Suzuka and surprised everyone by clinching pole-position in the qualifying.
With an excellent result in 2010, Weider Honda Racing won the overall season’s driver title for the GT500 class in the Super GT race 2010, thanks to drivers Takashi Kogure and Loic Duval. “Being No.1 last year was a good feeling, but also puts pressure on us. I will make every effort to defend our top position,” said Loic Duval.
Honda continues to field five HSV-010 GTs in the GT500 class of Super GT series this season and through Honda’s Challenging Spirit, the teams strive to improve in every race. “Last year was the first time that we introduced HSV-010 GT and we won the title. Throughout the races, we received feedback from drivers and used that to help us improve the race machine. They turned out to be highly stable machines as we anticipated. We will aim for the title again this year,” said Honda GT Project Development Leader, Keinosuke Taki.
The race machine, HSV-010 GT with its new engine, new chassis and sporty design was first introduced in Super GT 2010 to meet last season’s Super GT regulation after the NSX had become obsolete. In addition, to address environmental concerns, the HSV-010 GT will be equipped with a cataylzer, which is requirement in the Super GT machine regulations.
Let’s wish all our best to the Honda Racing Teams and the HSV-010 GT in Sepang International Circuit this June!
