Honda recently announced the launch of its new racing website,, which will serve as the home of HRC’s factory racing activities across the world. The new site will highlight regular news of the team, feature stories and video and image content from the five main championships in which HRC factory teams compete all in one place. For instance, the site will cover Team HRC in MXGP and Cross-Country Rally/Dakar, the Repsol Honda Team in MotoGP and Trial World Championships, and Team Honda in AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross.

The Rally Dakar 2014 has run its course. It was a fight to the finish for the TEAM HRC riders as the 36th edition of the world’s toughest race drew to a close. Hélder Rodrigues finished the highest of the Honda riders in fifth place, with Joan Barreda in seventh with five stage victories under his belt. All the Honda CRF450 RALLYs finished the gruelling rally with the same engines, signalling a huge success for the brand and highlighting the machine’s great potential.
