2008 E82  [0.00]
And not just up for sale. Last Night the board of Honda decided to shut down operations for the F1 team. As of right now, Honda have withdrawn from racing in F1.

The team is pretty positive that a buyer will be found. And, that they will be on the grid in Melbourne.

This is terrible.

Honda Ain't Got no Money

EDIT: Plus, I just read that Audi is leaving the ALMS series. OH $HIT!!!!!!!

Its probably because customers really don't get attracted by races in a car that has nothing in common with their actual product besides the name printed on the car. I could care less what brand wins f1 because it is not a reflection of the cars each manufacturer produces for the public.
