Honda has announced that it is expanding its Honda Racing Line program to include collegiate SAE programs. The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) works to create global engineering standards which numerous industries can adhere to.
Now, SAE-affiliated racing groups at top universities, such as Formula SAE and Baja SAE can apply for membership in the Honda Racing Line and gain direct access to HPD-developed products and parts.
“We are delighted to be offering memberships in the Honda Racing Line to universities involved with collegiate-level SAE programs,” said Jeff Barrow, HPD Manager of Commercial Motorsports, in a statement. “Both HPD and our parent company, American Honda, have long been associated with the SAE and the organization’s student competitions. Many current HPD associates participated in Formula SAE and similar programs during their university years. Now these programs will have access to our performance product lines as well as our talented technical support.”
Here at Vann York Honda, we love to see Honda reaching out to the next generation of future engineers and giving them access to a great program like the Honda Racing Line. So if you are interested, make sure you check out what the program has to offer, and who knows, maybe you will be developing a new Honda in the future.
