Creating this video was fun. Hang on and ride along with my Civic Type R engine swap as we make a hot lap around Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course at a #GRIDLIFE Time Attack event. Camera is on the roof of the car, so you can "feel" the speed and the wind whipping you in the face the entire time.Hang on and ride along with my Civic Type R engine swap as we make a hot lap around Mid-Ohio.

In April of 2019, I participated in my first #GRIDLIFE event thanks to my sponsor, Acuity Instruments. My Honda Civic K20c1 is mainly an SCCA race car, but for the #GRIDLIFE events, I change the set-up so I can run in Time Attack. We are taking part in #GRIDLIFE this year because we wanted to check out the series and learn more about it--it's wild and fun. Watch the video to get a fast, front-seat view of the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
After two seasons of never losing a race, the last thing I expected was to have my race car taken away from me. However, that's exactly what happened.
In late 2018, I was very excited to receive a prototype of Acuity Instrument's 10th Gen Civic Fully Adjustable Shifter. Immediately, I put it into my Honda Civic K20C1 race car to test it out.
In October 2017, I got lucky--all of my hard work building the world's first Honda Civic Type R engine swap paid off and my car was showcased within the Honda booth at that year's SEMA show. It was a huge honor.
Ever wonder what it's like to start a race from last place?
S3 Magazine was correct: Engine swaps are at the core of the Honda game. That's one reason why my Honda Civic Type R engine ended up in a 2017 Civic Si Chassis.
