With its DNA so deeply entwined with motorsports, Honda is also sharing its motorsports engineering technology, and its relentless pursuit of human development to improve skills to a higher level of new value creation. As a company inspired by its racing heritage, Honda challenges itself to push human boundaries in order to establish technological innovation.
According to Mr. Atsushi Fujimoto, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Honda Malaysia Sdn Bhd said, "Honda Racing F1 Team has transformed human spirit into technology, when they enhance their race cars by applying advanced technology that gives outstanding performance. The team is determined to recapture its glory of challenging for championship titles following its defeat in F1 last year. But for Honda, it is not in the winning. We have come far in winning but we go further in defeats. The team spirit is stronger than ever and they are rising to the challenge within."
Information on the Honda F1 race machine, RA108 which has been named "Earthdreams" are also put up to educate the public on climate change and to encourage Malaysians to be more aware of the environmental concern towards our Earth.
