Casualties

The Big Three aren’t the only ones being affected by the economic and auto industry slow down, other companies are taking proactive steps to ensure their future, unlike the Big Three who just spend money like Whitney Houston in a crack house and then beg for tax payers to bail them out over and over again. Here’s the latest rundown of what I’ve managed to piece together;

Honda: Dropped their entire F1 program and have cancelled the new NSX

Audi: Withdrawn from both American and European Le Mans series

Mazda: American Le Mans program dropped

Porsche: American Le Mans program dropped

Subaru: WRC program dropped

Suzuki: WRC program dropped

Aston Martin: Unspecified cutbacks and so far will only commit to the 24 Hours of Le Mans

Tough times indeed

Every year around Thanksgiving Honda Racing puts on their Thanks Day for the fans of Honda factory racing machines of all flavors, everything from JGTC to vintage F1 to Moto GP is represented at Twin Ring Motegi for the fans to get up close and personal with. Demo runs, ride alongs, autograph sessions and motorcycle riding classes are all part of the day’s events.

Here one lucky Honda enthusiast gets a ride along in a JGTC NSX while others get to ride in the tour bus among a field of former JGTC cars as they do demo laps of Motegi
