Honda has held this weekend at Motegi the so-called Honda Racing Thanks Day, a day in which the japanese brand is grateful for the support of all their fans together all the official riders of the different categories in which we compete for the signature in all the world. In this way, the pilots of F1, MotoGP, Motocross, Motocross, Indycar, Super GT and other disciplines have shared a day of fun in addition to delight of the fans, we have also been able to exchange their vehicles. Some of the missing have been Jenson Button, Gabriele Tarquini and Tiago Monteiro.
Without the drivers in the WTCC and with the low of Jenson Button, the event has spoken English. Fernando Alonso, Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa have been the most acclaimed by the public and protagonists of the various events held during the day, with the permission of the other riders stellar as Toni Bou or the local Takahisa Fujinami and Takuma Sato. In fact, one of the stellar moments of the day was when Fernando Alonso climbed on the MotoGP Honda, decorated for the occasion with the corporate colors of the brand. And what is true is that the pilot of McLaren-Honda was not especially slow.
in Addition to the RC213V, Fernando Alonso had also the
occasion of pilot cars historic McLaren-Honda, as the MP4-6
with which Ayrton Senna won his third title of F1 in 1991, vehicles
street and vitaminado NSX Concept that competes in the Super GT 500 in
Japan. For their part, the pilots ‘two wheels’ Honda changed
habitat and went over to the four wheels. The representatives of Honda in
MotoGP, Trial and Motocross had the opportunity to play in a
race go-karts or riding in various vehicles of the brand.
After the event, Fernando Alonso was very happy and wanted to thank Honda in social networks the great journey lived: “Thanks to Honda for giving me the opportunity of getting on to these dreams with wheels. Unique experiences”. For his part, Marquez after swapping his helmet with the own Alonso, explained: “We’ve had a good day thanks to Honda.

A reflection that has pululado in the atmosphere of the Honda
Racing Thanks Day. And is that 2015 has not been particularly successful for the brand
japanese. The margin of the disastrous season in Formula 1, the formation of
MotoGP has been superseded by Yamaha, indy car engines Chevrolet have been
the dominators and in the WTCC the official team of Honda was barely able to pick up
the crumbs of Citroën Racing, while in the Super GT 500 has been surpassed
by Nissan. a Few reasons for celebrations, in spite of the successes combined
Trial and MX2.
