In 2020, I had the opportunity to race a HPD Turn-key Civic Si in the TC America Series. I plan to make a short series of videos that gives you a closer look into what makes this car special.
The focus on this video is the brakes.

Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) posted their recap of the 2019 STU National Championship Runoffs event.
Kevin Boehm, of Marysville, Ohio, was the defending Super Touring® Under (STU) National Champion coming into this year’s Runoffs® at VIRginia International Raceway. And earlier this week, despite a small setback, he earned the Tire Rack Pole Award and led a 25-car field to the start.
While Boehm, driving the No. 90 HPD/Carbotech/Red Line Oil Honda Civic, bobbled a bit at the start of Saturday’s 15-lap race around VIR’s 18-turn, 3.27-mile circuit, he quickly recovered and marched away to a 25-second victory. This is Boehm’s second consecutive National Championship in the STU class, and fourth Championship overall.
“I think this is the first year everything went to plan,” said Boehm, who also set a new STU lap record during the race. “I expected Elivan to get a better start since his car is so light and so good. But then I went to work from there. This was an absolute perfect car for this track.”
