Honda Nationals 2011

What an awesome event this was. So much VTEC in one place. So many fast Hondas! The guys from BYP organised a track day that will surely be an annual event. Hosted at the very familiar Wakefield Park Raceway, cars from Melbourne drove up 9 hours to participate and compete. The results? FAST!
Brandon’s DC2R won outright with a 1:03.2960. John Boston runner up in the Insight Motorsport S2000 with a 1:03.4010 and Damien set a new benchmark for NA Hondas with an amazing 1:05.6080.
It was great to be on the track again. The bug is back! However, I’m going to have to take a little break from it as I’m saving up for a big holiday.

Honda Nationals 2011Busted a tyre. Lucky I brought my street tyres along so I had no issues going home. Unfortunately the day was cut short but no complaints. Car was OK. I was OK. All OK!

Honda Nationals 2011This day was the first opportunity for me to drive a K swapped car. So much power! Love it. This EG is owned by Ryan and coming out of the pits I went a little sideways. I taught him the lines and he won the “Most Improved” award! First time at the track, his best was 1:19. At the end of the day, he shaved 5 seconds and managed a 1:14.
