For almost 50 years, Honda has turned to racing as the perfect training ground for both engineers and designers. According to Soichiro Honda, the pressures of racing challenges people, forces them to find innovative solutions and demands quick, accurate responses to new problems they've never faced before.
Racing is ingrained in the corporate culture of Honda. Mr. Honda always stressed that racing teaches teamwork. No single individual can bring success; racing is a group effort.
Throughout its existence, on both two wheels and four, Honda has raced—and won—at the highest levels. From the Isle of Man TT motorcycle race to Formula One Grand Prix (with 60 race victories and four consecutive Constructors' Championships from 1988–91), Honda models are found in victory lanes around the world.
