Honda Enjoy Kids Rider and Eco Program

12.02.2013: This program features events for children using Pinky Bikes and Kid's Bikes, two popular attractions

This program features events for children using Pinky Bikes and Kid's Bikes, two popular attractions at the amusement facilities of Suzuka Circuit and Twin Ring Motegi. The purpose of the program is to actively offer the chance for young children to have first-hand experience with vehicles, so that "mobility" will be familiar and enjoyable from an early age.


In 2012, the Honda "Enjoy Kids Rider" was held at six sites in Japan, where a total of 2,339 children took part in these events. Once again this year, Shinya Nakano, a former MotoGP rider, has been appointed captain of the Caravan Crew that will circulate among the various sites in Japan.

(Sat. – Sun.)     Enjoy Honda Kumamoto 2013     Honda Safety & Riding PLAZA Kyushu, Kumamoto

•    The schedule is subject to change.






Honda Sports & Eco Program



Continuing from last year, Honda will again support the Honda Sports & Eco Program in which anyone can take part.


Run jointly by Mobilityland Corporation and M-TEC Co., Ltd., this motor recreation program will enable any paticipants easily enjoy the fun of "maneuvering, polishing their driving skills, and competing," while pushing the limits of the Honda CR-Z "Sports & Eco Specifications" for the purpose of promoting coexistence of the environment and sports driving.


To encourage even more people to take part in the event, Honda has made the program even more attractive in 2013, including holding more events on Saturdays and Sundays, offering a new price structure, and assembling a roster of instructors led by active Honda team drivers having an abundance of experience in the SUPER GT and Japanese Championship SUPER FORMULA races.


•Motegi 1.5 Challenge Cup


The Motegi 1.5 Challenge Cup, a motorsports program that anyone with a vehicle engine displacement of 1.5 L or less can enter, will take place at Twin Ring Motegi five times per year, including the Sprint Race, 120-minute Semi-endurance Race, and 7-hour Endurance Race ("Joy-tai").


In harmony with the event's aim of "revitalizing participatory motorsports," Honda will again this year support the development of M-TEC racing parts made for the Fit RS and other models.





Support for the Asia Dream Cup program



The rapid rise in enthusiasm across Asia for motorcycle racing led to last year's introduction of the Asia Dream Cup, a program for developing rider talent.


This program is part of the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship Series. Honda continues its active support of this project, which will select riders from 12 countries in the Asian region including Japan, in aim to bring up future GP race riders. Honda supports the Asia Dream Cup program by supplying racing specs machines based on its CBR250R model, and will send Chojun Kameya and Shinya Nakano to all races as advisers to young riders.


Representing Japan in the 2013 Asia Dream Cup races will be Reitoku Kurogi, who achieved good results in the 2012 CBR250R CUP Series, and Hiroki Ono, who placed second in series rankings in the 2012 Asia Dream Cup.


Hikari Okubo, who emerged as the first series champion in the 2012 Asia Dream Cup races, will now participate in the MFJ All-Japan Road Race J-GP3 class.
