Repsol Honda take team accolade

Repsol Honda take team accolade

Having taken the constructors title last Sunday, success at Motegi also brought another accolade Honda's way, as their factory team Repsol Honda sealed the team championship.

Nicky Hayden and Dani Pedrosa's sterling form, particularly in the opening stages of the season, enabled the official team to proclaim themselves the best of 2006 with two races still to go this season. An advantage of 110 points is insurmountable for second placed team Camel Yamaha.

Repsol Honda have twice had a podium one-two, in China and the USA, when Pedrosa and Hayden alternately came in first and second. Sixteen podiums, four victories, four second places and eight third places show the consistency of the team, who have only once had a rider outside the points this season when Dani Pedrosa crashed in Catalunya.
