What you are looking at is one of the coolest F1 cars out there, the Honda RA300. Nicknamed by journalists as “Hondola”, because Honda Racing and “Lola” designed it. If you do not know the following company, you have some catching up to do on racing history. A picture of Honda RA300 should be next to the word “art” in the automotive dictionary.
This Honda RA300 art is a reminder of how the Japanese can race
The car is intriguing, not due to its driving characteristics or championship winning stories, but somewhat with its style and history. At first glance, you immediately notice its torpedo-shaped design. Along with its red stripes, it looks almost like a bloody arrow, doesn’t it?! Moving to the back of it, the little boy in all of us starts screaming with joy – “Look at that waterfall shaped exhaust situated right behind the driver’s seat and on top of the screaming 48-valve V12!” What a feeling it must have been to roar around Monza in this rolling piece of art.
An additional wow factor was added when the car was driven by non-other than John Surtees, F1 World Champion and four-time 500cc motorcycle World Champion. It does not end with this, Mr Surtees won the race at Monza, the inaugural run of the RA300. You are thinking, well that is not so impressive, I have read about other cars doing that. Well, you are right about that, but this was the first and the last race that this car has ever won. On top of that, the finishing lap was the only lap that the RA300 has ever led in its entire F1 life-cycle. A record, which stands today and will probably never be beaten.
