Honda RA300

The Honda RA300 was produced by Honda Racing, and introduced towards the end of the 1967 Formula One season. It retained the same V12 engine as the preceding RA273 car, but the chassis was designed by Lola’s Eric Broadley and based on a previous Lola Indianapolis 500 car, the T90. Internally, Lola designated the RA300 the T130. This collaboration resulted in the machine quickly being dubbed the “Hondola” by the motorsports press.

Broadley’s chassis was much lighter and sweeter-handling than the in-house RA273. The car initially performed impressively, winning in its first-ever World Championship race, the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. Driver John Surtees took the lead from Jim Clark’s Lotus and Jack Brabham’s Repco-Brabham on the final lap, after Clark ran out of fuel and Brabham ran wide. However, the RA300 flattered to deceive, and this would turn out to be the only lap that the car would lead. It remains the only F1 car ever to take its single victory in its very first Grand Prix, and on the only lap it would ever lead. That said, no matter where it placed, the “waterfall” exhaust array will always be remembered as one of the RA 300s most distinctive features.

Honda continued with the RA300 for the remainder of the 1967 season, Surtees finishing fourth at the final race in Mexico.

My new 1967 Formula One print series features the winning cars and includes (all availability dates are subject to change):

Each illustration will feature a background that includes a graphic adapted from the event poster for the race the car won as well as the respective track profile. Prints may also be purchased without a background. Illustrations are printed on acid-free,  museum quality paper using naturally pigmented inks for exquisite detail clarity and color reproduction. Prints with backgrounds measure 10″ x 24″ or 15″ x 36″ and prints without backgrounds measure 8″ x 24″ and 12″ x 36″ with prices from $185 — $235.

Press runs on the Formula One series prints will be extremely limited—only 25 of each car will be pressed. Because of the extremely limited availability, for the first time, I will be offering  a deposit feature on advanced sales that will allow you to reserve a print, or prints, of your choosing. Deposit amount per/print is $75 with balance(s) on advance sales prints due upon shipment.
