    favourite racing team

    In RACING terminology, which marque is your favourite?

    My favourite is Porsche. Just look at their achievements:
    24 hours of LeMans
    24 hours of Datyona
    24 hours of Nurburgring
    12 hours of Sebring
    CanAm
    Targa Florio
    Paris-Dakar
    FIA-GT

    You left out some of the victories af Porsche...
    4-times winner of the Rally Montecarlo (and other WRC rallyes)
    1970 International Makes Chamiponship (the forerunner of the WRC)
    Various times winner of the Sportscars Championship (or whatever names this kind of championship has had over the years)
    European Rallycross winner
    And I suppose a lot more (including national championships af all kinds).
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!

    What exactly has Honda won as a manufacturer?
    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    alot-ill have to find it all because i did a report on it-give me a sec

    EDIT: ok-their first win was in the Isle of Man TT race (motorcycles) in 1959 and first place in 1961 and scince then have pretty much dominated the sport

    im sure you know all about their F1 history-they also have numerous Indy and CART victories, especially scince GM's faultering in the series

    Honda holds a large number of MotoGP and other, smaller, assorted motorcycle victories. as a matter of fact, the RC211V motorcycle has one every MotoGP it has been raced in

    im not sure how many times (definetly more than twice) honda has one the dakar motorcycle segment...

    other single victories include the World Solar Challenge and 24hrs of LeMans GT2 class and a number of other small not so worthy of mention victories

    overall honda has over 500 motorcycle victories and has 7 consecutive Suzuka Endurance race victories (obviously they have a good amount in JGTC as well)


    thats why honda should be up there
