A reliable source has told us that a Honda S2000 is in the works for the 2014 season. While the source declined to say who the driver would be, they indicated to us that the car has already been purchased and is being prepped as we speak. The last Honda on grid was James Robinson’s Honda Element which competed in Formula D in 2010 (and a few seasons of NOPI Drift). Previously, Stephan Papadakis campaigned an S2000 from 2005 to 2008 before parking the car to focus on running Tanner Foust’s program, and RS*R campaigned an S2000 from 2004 to 2006 with Alex Pfeiffer and later Tyler McQuarrie behind the wheel. Pfeiffer earned a 3rd place finish at Irwindale in 2004, and a 2nd place finish at New Jersey in 2005, while McQuarrie earned a 3rd place finish at Chicago in 2006. 11 different OEM manufacturers competed in 2013, the addition of this car and Charles Ng’s Infiniti G37 would bring that number up to 13.
Who do you think will bring the S2000 to Formula D in 2014?
