Honda Performance Develops 3.5-Liter Prototype Engine

Honda Performance Development Thursday announced a new, 3.5-liter racing application for the versatile, production-based Honda V6 engine found in a wide range of Honda/Acura passenger cars and light trucks and now raced in multiple categories worldwide.

The Honda HR35TT twin-turbocharged V6 is expected to make its TUDOR United SportsCar Championship debut at the 2014 Mobil1 12 Hours of Sebring, mounted in a Riley Gen3 prototype chassis campaigned by Starworks Motorsport.

Previously, Starworks partnered with HPD to win the LMP2 class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and World Endurance Championship in 2012, using HPD’s ARX-03b chassis and Honda HR28TT twin-turbocharged V6, which also is derived from Honda’s J35 series of engines.

Starworks becomes the second team to utilize Honda power for the new TUDOR championship. Extreme Speed Motorsports campaigns a pair of prototype class HPD ARX-03b Hondas, after a successful initial season with the same package in the 2013 American Le Mans Series.

“This is an exciting program for HPD and our customer teams in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship,” said Steve Eriksen, HPD Vice President and COO. “Adding Starworks, a team that achieved great success with us in 2012, in a prototype machine alongside the proven HPD-Honda combination run by Extreme Speed Motorsports provides HPD with a strong, balanced attack in the inaugural TUDOR Championship.”

“It’s a fantastic feeling to be partnering with Honda once again,” said Starworks team owner Peter Baron. “No doubt we had amazing success with HPD in 2012, but unfortunately it was only a one-year program. We have had numerous conversations over the past two years about building a Daytona Prototype motor and we’re thrilled to see it come to fruition. We absolutely love working with HPD and have been in collaboration to find a new opportunity to partner with them again. We will have our work cut out with the steep learning curve to get us to Victory Lane, but HPD brings determination and success to every program it touches. Although HPD already competes in the Prototype class, we feel this is huge step for the TUDOR series and Starworks is thrilled to be part of it.”

Starworks Motorsport has compiled an enviable record in Daytona Prototype competition, with five race victories, including back-to-back wins at Indianapolis in 2012 and 2013; and a second-place finish in the Daytona Prototype team championship in 2012, with two victories and six podium finishes. That same year, Starworks became the first American-based prototype team to win an FIA World Championship since 1968, and HPD won its first world title in WEC competition.

The HPD-developed twin-turbocharged Honda engines to be used in the TUDOR championship are both derived from the Honda J35 series of production V6 engines, and include relevant twin-turbocharger technology, along with the efficiency provided by direct fuel injection.

The HR35TT is yet another competition application of the ubiquitous J35 engine. The first, the HR28TT, was designed for LMP2 competition and won in its American Le Mans Series debut in 2011. The engine has gone on to record 24 individual race victories and three series titles in the American Le Mans Series, World Endurance Championship and European Le Mans Series Competition.

Other variants of the engine have been raced in Japan’s Autobacs SuperGT Championship, the One Lap of America competitive rally and Pikes Peak International Hillclimb.

Honda Performance Development (HPD) is the Honda performance company within North America.  Located in Santa Clarita, Calif., HPD is the technical operations center for high-performance Honda racing cars and engines. The company is marking its 20th anniversary in 2013.

As an engine supplier to the IZOD IndyCar Series, Honda has scored 204 race victories in both CART and IZOD IndyCar Series competition since 1994, and powered Scott Dixon to a series-high four victories and the 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series drivers’ championship.

HPD offers a variety of race engines for track applications from prototype sports cars to karting; and showcases “fun-to-drive” products for professional, amateur and entry-level racers.

Honda Accord Beats Out Toyota Camry In Pretty Much Every Category in 2013

Not only has the Honda Accord bested the Toyota Camry is sales for the 12th year in a row, it has done it by focusing on retail sales and not fleet sales. Ninety-eight percent of the Toyota Camry’s volume came from sales to individuals; 84 percent of sales of the Toyota Camry was made to individuals, which relies heavily on fleet sales.

And according to this article, the Honda Accord beats out the Toyota Camry in some key areas…in fact, the Toyota Camry isn’t even in the top three.

“The Accord had the highest residual value among mid-size cars in 2013, according to ALG, the Santa Barbara, California-based company that calculates such figures. The Honda model also led Kelley Blue Book’s resale value awards for mid-size cars. Camry isn’t in the top three of either ranking.”

This dedication to individual buyers is paying off big for Honda and for consumers.

“People who come to Sims Honda to check out the 2014 Honda Accord are blown away at what a high-quality vehicle it is,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “They can tell that Honda put the focus on the driver and passengers of the vehicle, not putting something together that would just meet the basic criteria and make some money.”

Honda Odyssey Touring Elite and HondaVAC™ Win a 2014 VIP (Very Innovative Products) Award from Good Housekeeping

Honda’s Odyssey Touring Elite minivan and its industry-first solution for built-in mobile clean up—HondaVAC™—received a coveted 2014 VIP (Very Innovative Products) Award from Good Housekeeping.

The influential and long-running publication selected just six 2014 VIP award winners from thousands of products based on their ingenuity and the results of laboratory testing conducted by the engineers and scientists at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute (GHRI), as well as consumer evaluation. Honda Odyssey with HondaVAC™ was the only automotive product to receive a VIP award this year.

Toyota Recalls 260,000 Vehicles Over Brake Issue

Toyota announced that it is recalling more than 261,000 vehicles with possible problems with the software of the braking system; this could result in a crash.

The recall affects the 2013 Toyota Tacoma, 2012 Toy0ta RAV4, and the 2012 and 2013 Lexus RX 350. According to this article, “According to Toyota, an electrical component within the actuator that adjusts the fluid pressure for each of the brakes of the affected vehicles may experience an increased resistance.

“This would result in the illumination of various warning lights in the dash, including those for the stability and traction control systems as well as the antilock brakes. If this were to occur, Toyota says that the systems could become inoperative, reducing the directional control assistance during braking, and thus increasing the risk of a crash.”

Toyota will notify owners if they are affected.

Kelley Blue Book Names 2014 Honda Accord One of Best Family Vehicles

It’s true, when SUVs and smaller SUVs, some predicted the end of the family sedan. That prediction has proven not true and the 2014 Honda Accord even goes so far as to say it’s just as good (and even better in some ways) as those SUVs.

And that’s according to Kelley Blue Book’s website, kbb.com.

This sums up the family-friendliness of the 2014 Honda Accord nicely:

“The Honda Accord has been a top seller for literally decades, but this Accord is the most family friendly yet. The Accord has plenty of rear seat room for child boosters, and the trunk holds a stroller plus lots of groceries. The Accord’s touch-screen interface is easy to use, and LaneWatch, Honda’s cool new side-view camera, virtually makes your passenger-side mirror obsolete.

“But beyond all the various features, the Accord is a midsize family car that you’ll just want to drive. It’s refined, competent on every road surface, the 4-cylinder engine and continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) combine for plentiful power and very good fuel economy, and it even looks good. If you don’t want an SUV, and just enjoy driving, the Accord proves the family sedan still has plenty of life left.”

Yes, some people just want a great family car, not an SUV and the 2014 Honda Accord is a great place to start.

“People want family sedans for different reasons,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “Generally speaking, though, people who want a family sedan want superior gas mileage, plenty of space, a good driving experience, and lots of storage space in the trunk. The 2014 Honda Accord easily fits the bill for all of those things.”

The 2014 Honda Accord comes standard with more technology than you will find in any other family vehicle. Features like LaneWatch and the back-up camera will have you feeling like you paid much more than you really did. It has a very refined, smooth drive that, again, will make you feel like you are driving a much more expensive luxury car. And in that way, it’s a very “un-family” car.

Stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to find out why the 2014 Honda Accord is one of the best family vehicles available!
