The love story seemed to be over for good. Yet here she is starting again. This still seemed inconceivable in every way a few weeks ago. The association between the two entities is not new, since it was already the case until the end of the 2023 season, but Honda Racing Corporation USA had severed its ties with the team of Michael Shank and Jim Meyer following – in particular – the cheating affair in which the team found itself at the 24 2023 Hours of Daytona. Winner of the event, the team manipulated its tire pressure readings, in order to run with a pressure lower than that required by Michelin and the sporting regulations.
