The Release Date is Aug / Sep 2023.
The RA301 was Honda's entry for the 1968 F1 season, based on the Honda RA300 from the previous season that managed to score one win. Compared to its predecessor, the RA301 featured various changes such as a new exhaust layout, overall lighter weight, and a rear wing attachment in the latter half of the season. While the car solved all the issues presented by the RA300 it failed the impress, only managing two podium finishes. The commercialization of Ford's Cosworth DFV engine saw DFV cars dominate the upper ranks, making it tough for Honda to leave a mark in the competition.
During the development of the RA301 in Britain, Honda was also developing the RA302 at the same time in Japan, which featured an air cooled engine. The RA302 debuted at French GP but was destroyed in a tragic accident. Honda would race the RA301only until the very end of the 1968 season.
The team withdrew from the sport in the following year, marking the end of Honda's first era in Formula one. They would not return until the turbo era in the 1980s.
