American Honda has announced Team Honda Talon Racing, a new professional off-road racing effort to promote the Talon 1000R sport. With direct technical and engineering support from American Honda’s Powersports Division, the new team is managed by Proctor Racing Group – which also operates and drives Honda’s Baja Off Road Ridgeline.

Team Honda Talon Racing will devote the remainder of 2019 to designing, engineering and testing the Talon 1000R before launching a two-vehicle race effort in selected events in 2020. Unveiled in March, the Talon features technology including a DCT and I-4WD.

“As a team owner, I’m humbled to have the opportunity to represent Honda’s Powersports Division with the new Talon,” said Proctor Racing Group team principal Jeff Proctor. “Honda has a rich racing heritage, particularly in Baja, and I’m thrilled to build this side-by-side racing program and take it to the top.”

“It’s exciting to kick off the Team Honda Talon Racing side-by-side racing program,” added Brandon Wilson, advertising and motorcycle sports manager at American Honda. “The Talon has been a big hit in media evaluations and on showroom floors, and it deserves a quality racing project.

“Considering Proctor Racing’s history with Honda’s Automotive Division, and the success of their Ridgeline racing program, they’re a great choice as a partner for this project. We’re looking forward to seeing the Talon in competition.”
