Paints recommended by Tamiya / SpotModel for this product:
Dubbed RA272, the sophisticated F1 racer made its debut early in 1965. Throughout the season, it got more on the pace with its European rivals. The final race of the season and the final race of the 1.5 litre class was held at the Mexico circuit. The Hondas ran well from the first day of practice. Ginther took the lead from the second row of the grid behind Jim Clark (Lotus-Climax), and Dan Gurney (Brabham-Climax), and by the end of the first lap he was 300 yards ahead. Gurney came no closer than 2.0sec. Ginther never had to rev the RA272 Honda above 11,000rpm, and achieved the first victory by a Japanese car since the dawn of grand prix racing in 1906. The significance of the event was not lost on the world of motor racing. The last race of the last season under the old rules was also the last race under the old regime, in which European supremacy was scarcely challenged.
