Pikes Peak Civic: Part One

When it comes to American hill climb racing, the event that shines brightest is Pikes Peak. If you really want to make your mark on history, that is the hill climb to set records in that get noticed. Sportcar Motion is set to make their mark in 2016 with their FA5 Civic. Loi Song, Sportcar Motion’s president, shows us how the car currently sits and what he has planned to transform it into a boosted mountain-taming race car.

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.
