Honda announces new HRC President

Honda Racing Corporation (HRC) confirms its new President as Yoshishige Nomura.
Yoshishige Nomura has been announced as the new president for Honda Racing Corporation (HRC), taking over from Tetsuo Suzuki.

After 5 years at the helm of HRC, Mr. Suzuki will begin a fresh challenge in a new Honda department where his role will be to lead a new team to create captivating bikes for Honda fans Worldwide.

Mr Nomura comes into his place having started work at Honda almost 30 years ago and comes into his new role at HRC at a time when Honda is enjoying excellent fortunes at MotoGP level.

“2013 was a great season for Honda MotoGP and we celebrated our third successive Constructors Championship, 62nd in our history, and I am very proud to take the reins of this formidable team.

“Rookie Marc Marquez had an outstanding season and Dani Pedrosa was unfortunate to sustain an injury in Sachsenring and thus making the remainder of his season very hard to close the gap. Now we have begun 2014 in fantastic form with a double podium – Marc on the top step and Dani in 3rd – and I hope this is a sign of things to come.”

Referring to iconic title sponsor Repsol, which is entering its 20th anniversary as a partner of Honda at the highest level, Nomura is hopeful its partnership with continue to flourish.

“This season we celebrate our 20th Anniversary with title sponsor Repsol, this long and distinguished partnership flourishes every year and we are very grateful to have such a wonderful technical, and commercial partner.

“Together we have shared a great deal of success, and I'd like to thank everyone at Honda and HRC, all our sponsors and technical partners for their valuable ongoing support. We will work hard to retain our crown as MotoGP World Champions in 2014.”
