Meet Honda Malaysia Racing Team’s new race-prepped duo, based on the 2014 Honda Jazz and City. They replace HMRT’s winning pair of previous-generation Jazz racers, and will compete in the 2014 Sepang 1,000 km (S1K) endurance race in December.
The blue and white half-twins have been worked on since March this year, and feature special ball joints to adjust the roll centre and bump steer for better handling around the track. Both have had its internals stripped out, of course, and now weigh just 1,030 kg in race trim.
With team director Akkbar Danial leading the charge, HMRT will field returning drivers Eddie Lew, Aaron Lim (2013 S1K overall winners) and Farriz Fauzy in the new cars. The fourth driver will be announced soon.
