The team started the season under Lotus power
With their sights set on consecutive victories at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Team Barracuda – BHA is proud to announce a new partnership with American Honda and its Honda Performance Development (HPD) subsidiary for the remainder of the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series season.
With Honda Performance Development
Wirth Research is delighted to announce a new long-term technical partnership with California-based Honda Performance Development (HPD) – a partnership which began in 2003 that not only extends the two organisations’ globally successful sports prototype programmes but also encompasses an exciting new IndyCar project.
The countdown is on, only one week until the start of the 2011 race season.
The inaugural race weekend in the new F1600 Formula F Championship Series will be challenging, but Caitlin Johnston, from Ontario, is up for it. “For our team it feels like the definite logical next step. We have been racing Formula 1600 for four seasons now, really learning the ins and outs of the car and gaining race experience. I have been very fortunate to be able to race in different cars and series, and this is no different. To say that I am excited is an understatement,” said Johnston.
Exciting new LMP1 and LMP2 sportscar programmes
California based Honda Performance Development, (HPD), and Wirth Research are stepping up HPD’s globally successful sportscar programme in 2011 with a highly revised version of the internationally victorious HPD ARX-01c LMP2 prototype plus, more significantly, a striking new LMP1 contender designed to compete in the premier class at the Le Mans 24 Hours.
