The world is still waiting for the end of the ‘Vara-san’, and it’s not looking good.
Here, we take a look at what we know so far.
When it was created, it was a little-known team from the UK, called the ‘Alden Boys’.
This meant it had to use a team of four British players, who were also part of the team of three American players.
In the late 1980s, they won the inaugural British Superbike Championship, but were beaten by the reigning world champion Yamaha team.
The team changed hands in 2001, when former British Supercar driver Jim Clark joined as technical director.
In 2002, the team went on a tour of North America, and won a number of races there.
In 2003, they moved to the WEC from MotoGP, and were quickly promoted to World Superbikes, but in 2007 they were handed their only win in MotoGP at the Hungaroring, and only their third win in a season in the WSBK.
They raced for two seasons in Formula One, winning a series of titles, including two in 2004 and 2006.
The car they drove at the World Endurance Championship in 2010 was a Vara-San, and the team used it for several races during the 2012 season.
But the Vara, as well as the team name, have since been dropped from the WSA team crest.
And now it’s back.
The name of the car used in the 2013 season was a Honda, but the team changed it for the 2017 season, and was officially named the Honda Racing Team, in order to better align with the WRC team’s crest.
But that’s not all.
In 2018, the VARA-San became the first British motorcycle team to compete in the World Rally Championship, and after the 2018 season, they returned to MotoGP.
And lastly, in November, the car was returned to the British MotoGP grid, after a series aero changes to improve aerodynamics.
What is the ‘vara-seno’?
It’s a very common word for British and American drivers.
In British parlance, it means ‘team car’.
But it also means ‘driver’, ‘driver-in-command’, or ‘driver of the driver’.
It’s an interesting way of looking at the team.
For instance, in the American NASCAR franchise, the term ‘drivers team’ refers to the driver’s seat.
The term ‘driver in command’ refers only to the team manager, or the team president.
In Britain, the terms ‘driver’ and ‘team’ are used interchangeably.
But, because the word ‘seno’ refers not to a team, but to the car, it can refer to a whole team of drivers, as in ‘the drivers’ team’.
The ‘senos’ are normally drivers of Honda cars.
But in the VAR-san, they’re also drivers of Ducati bikes, and other British and US models.
3/5 The Vara is based in a converted warehouse on the outskirts of Bristol, but there are other factory sites in Bristol, including the factory in Alderney, near Bristol, where the Varna team has been based since the early 2000s.
4/5 A Vara at work.
It can be found in Bristol and the city of Bristol-upon-Avon.
The factory is the former Harley-Davidson factory, which was shut down in 2011 after 25 years.
The VARA team has now moved to a new site in Atherton, south of Bristol.
5/5 An early Vara.
The engine used in this car is a V12 with a 6-cylinder.
6/5 This is a typical Vara from 2009.
The rear wing and front brake calipers are all new, and it is fitted with a new rear wing.
It is powered by a 2.0-litre V12 engine.
7/5 In 2010, a VARA driver, who was working as a mechanic, made a video of himself riding his bike on the VRA circuit, in front of a VRA logo.
It was the first time a rider had ever done this.
8/5 Here’s a Vera rider.
9/5 And here’s another Vara rider.
The logo for the VADA (Vara Development and Association) association is in the middle of the bike.
The riders name on the back of the helmet is also in the background.
10/5 VARA riders at the WRA Touring Car Championship.
11/5 There are other VARA cars, such as this one, which won the British Superstock Championship in 2014.
12/5 From the outside, the bike looks like a classic Ducati bike.
