Honda (incl. Acura & HPD)
Honda heeft nooit veel interesse gehad in de Sportscar autosport, de aandacht ging meer uit naar de Formule 1. Het prestigieuze Japans GT Kampioenschap mag rekenen op aandacht van auto's uit de stal van Honda dochter Mugen. Recent was dochter Acura actief in de ALMS en sindsdien leveren de Japanners motoren onder de naam van HPD.

Honda competed only in sportscar racing in the mid 90's. Their interest was more in F1 and the national Japanese GT Championship. Recently Honda became active in the ALMS as Acura, nowadays the Japanese deliver engines under the label HPD.
