The FIA, governing body of Formula One (F1), banned active suspension and anti-lock brakes (ABS) for the 1994 season, ostensibly to curb costs and put racing first by emphasizing the driver’s role. Adherence to emphasis on driver skill has served the sport well in its rise to worldwide prominence.
The Acura NSX, Honda’s legendary flagship sports car, was the first production Japanese exotic car. It was introduced to the U.S. market (known as the Honda NSX elsewhere) for the 1991 model year, right on the back of the company’s streak of supplying engines to six straight (1986-1991) Formula One Constructors Championships.
