7. Funny Team Names

One of my favorite aspects about races in Asia are the team names, whose meanings clearly get lost in translation. Make no mistake: I’m sure every team that fielded an entry at Suzuka this year are professional outfits (if not in resources, then in talent), but maybe consulting with a native English speaker would have been a good idea before pulling the trigger on team gear, banners and paraphernalia. Some of my favorites this year include: Y’s distraction Dog House, 360.1 Motor Sports + Samurai Factory (ok, that one’s pretty cool, actually), Honda Sayama & PGR Escargot & H-TEC(E), Team Favorite Factory and Honda Blue Helmets.
