Without any good coverage of real sports this weekend, ie RACING! The staff around DCH Gardena Honda has been split between those few watching the b-ball and the rest of us sharing our favorite Honda racing stories from days past. One of our team members happened to say that he thought that it was a shame that Honda didnt race the Baja, we of course immediately responded with a loud but firm "au contraire mon frere!" We proceeded to not only explain Honda's long history in off road racing but also highlighted our lecture with the class win in last years Baja 100! From the Honda site: "Going into the 2010 43rd Score Baja 1000, Gavin Skilton and his team knew they had a distinct advantage. The 1,062-mile course was a high-speed affair, so the Ridgeline's Variable Torque Management® 4-Wheel Drive System (VTM-4®), and 4-wheel independent suspension really gave it a chance to shine. Gavin Skilton and co-driver Andy Grider piloted the Ridgeline race truck to victory, literally leaving their competitors in the dust. They covered the course more than 14 hours quicker than their closest competitor." We were happy to have cleared up this little misunderstanding and now look forward to this years Baja with even more fans among us! To see the amazing Ridgeline in person stop in today to DCH Gardena Honda and to read the rest of the coverage from the 2010 Baja 1000 click here! :)
