Honda Performance Development B-Spec Fit

An entry-level race car for Honda fans ready to go wheel-to-wheel racing.

By Brian Gillespie and Aaron Gaghagen

When you want to go legit and get your hands dirty with some head-to-head, side-by-side track racing, one of the best places to start is with a B-Spec car. B-Spec cars are showroom stock racing cars that use stock engines and chassis but with competition roll cages, racing seats and safety equipment as well as manufacturer-approved suspension components, wheels, and tires.

We caught up with HPD (Honda Performance Development) recently at Auto Club Speedway of California and got the lowdown on the new B-Spec Honda Fit. It was easy to see after talking with them that racing’s more than just a part of their job.

Aaron Gaghagen is a veteran video editor and longtime Honda enthusiast. All told, he’s owned seven of them, and has enjoyed every single minute of wrenching on every single one. Except for that automatic one. That was probably a mistake. In 2010 Aaron teamed up with Brian Gillespie who along with another partner launched Nacho Speed Garage, a venture that capitalized on Aaron’s video expertise to do its part in entertaining and educating the Honda masses. Nacho Speed Garage took everything to the next level. Instead of reading magazines and cruising forums for content, Aaron and Brian were generating it themselves. The demise of Honda Tuning magazine in 2014 was the impetus for Aaron to do something even more impactful, though, which led to the creation of VTEC Academy and aims to carry that Honda torch forward in the same spirt of not just Honda Tuning but Nacho Speed Garage.
