A brief search seems to indicate that this might be for the LeMans racing series. I've camped out in the middle of the real 24 Hours of Le Mans when I lived in France, but I have no familiarity with these events. We don't know if this might be something new for Honda or old news.

The initial response from the FCC is that this application appears to be for ongoing operations and asks whether it can be licensed under other FCC rules.
