The Story

I bought this car shortly after being involved in a pretty bad car accident where my daily-driven Accord had been completely totaled. The Civic was meant to be a reliable car that could pull double duty as both a daily driver and a track car. I started my tracking journey in 2021 and have been going strong ever since, and the Civic has been the perfect candidate. I don't currently have a truck and trailer, so having a car that can get you to the track, be beaten on all day, and then be driven home is a necessity. This car has at least 20 hours of track time and has driven some of the most iconic circuits in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic. The overall goal with this car is to progress through HPDE and time trials/time attack and eventually run with Honda Challenge or GLTC wheel-to-wheel racing. The car also sees a lot of touge roads in and around the Blue Ridge Mountains.
