Team Honda Research – West “THR-W” is the officially sanctioned employee road racing team of Honda R&D Los Angeles - comprised entirely of Honda associates who strive to exhibit in themselves and their vehicles the challenging spirit first demonstrated by company founder Soichiro Honda. In addition to more than 20 SCCA class wins, the two car team won the 2007 NASA Western Endurance Racing Series Championship “WERC.,” earned eight podium finishes in the past two WERC Series seasons and finished second in class at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill three times.
THR-W is an expression of the challenging spirit that exists within Honda – a racing spirit that is a fundamental part of the company’s DNA. Operating under the mantra, “We develop what we race, and race what we develop,” the team strives to translate lessons learned on the track into new vehicle development as part of the “fun-to-drive” character found in Honda products. The fact that Honda associates are themselves enthusiasts and racers is an indication that they have the interests of enthusiasts in mind when they bring new vehicles to market. THR-W was founded in 1996.
