Here are the best bits from a memorable Goodwood Festival of Speed for Honda.
This year the Honda stand, which was focused on the theme of electrification had a spectacular appearance, reminiscent of the front of the new Honda e Prototype. On the ground floor you could see the Honda NSX, as well as the Mugen Shinden electric bike, leading up to the first floor which was entirely dedicated to the Honda e.
We had several people drive the Honda electric car, namely Alex Albon from Torro Rosso and the festival host – the Duke of Richmond. Both praised the car’s agility and innovation, complementing its potential to be an excellent city car.
But Honda at Goodwood wasn’t only about that – we celebrated the 60th anniversary of Honda Racing with an incredible collection of Honda motorbikes, as well as the legendary riders that found glory riding them.
The crowd were treated to the Honda RC142, NSR500, and RC213V, together with the RC30, RC181, Mugen Shinden Hachi, and the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade. Riders included Stuart Graham, Mick Doohan, Tadayuki Okada, Casey Stoner, Ian Hutchinson, Steve Plater, and Andrew Irwin from the current Honda Racing team.
The cherry on the cake for Honda at Goodwood 2019 was provided by Ayrton Senna’s McLaren Honda, making several laps in front of a UK audience and bridging the gap between the glory days of Honda Formula 1 teams and the present one which managed its first win a couple of weeks ago.
