Understated EP3

This car's clean and classic look really struck me and left an impression. Its a rare find to see how the owner has transformed the car simply with the Honda Factory Performance lip kit, spoiler, suspension and 16" wheels. There's something to be said for a car put together this way, with all OEM upgrades. Honda was really on point in this era with factory option parts.

Successful weekend for Honda in Grand Am

Last weekend's Continental Tire Challenge Grand-AM ST race at Mid-Ohio brought Michael Valiante to a first place finish in the No. 93 HART Honda Civic Si after his co-driver Chad Gilsinger qualified on pole and started the race. Compass 360 also had a good showing in their Civic Si with drivers Andrew Novich and Adam Burrows bringing in a 3rd place finish 21 seconds behind the leaders.

Honda Racing's clean sweep at Oulton Park

In an effort to bring you more Honda motorsports coverage, we'll be touching on current events in the racing world. To kick off the new trend, Honda's recent wins in the 2012 BTCC have been impressive to say the least...

"The Honda Yuasa Racing Team had its best Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship event of 2012 so far at Oulton Park last weekend, taking a clean sweep of all three races. Not only did reigning champion Matt Neal and team-mate Gordon Shedden prove unbeatable in their NGTC Honda Civics across the three action-packed encounters, they also moved into first and second in the drivers' table. Shedden now leads Neal by five points, and the squad continues to head the teams' and manufacturers' championships."

This is Honda Racing's 8th win in 12 races, but with 18 more events to go, they are off to an impressive start!
