The time attack groundswell that is Southern California's VTEC Club continues to gain momentum, as Round 3 of 5 for the second season of 2015 welcomed an increasingly bigger and more diverse field of competitors into the fold.
For those who may have missed our previous VTEC Club coverage this year, a brief recap: Born from and run in conjunction with Extreme Speed Track Events (Redline Time Attack's, uh, … parent series?) VTEC Club is a sovereign time attack-style racing series open to Honda competitors fielding unlimited-class Hondas in VTEC Club's "Group A," modified class in "Group A2," street class in "Group N," and pretty much anything in "Group N2" (AKA the just-for-fun class). VTEC Club competition has so far taken place at most all of SoCal well-known road-race tracks, so competitors can hone their skills in a variety of terrain and conditions, rain or shine (sometimes flood).
Rather than host a single series of upwards of 10 events, annual competition for 2015 has been broken into two seasons, and only one more remains (we skipped one) until new or defending champions are crowned in each of the aforementioned categories. Prizes, money, fame, and race queens will then descend from the heavens, and the VTEC Club will get busy planning to do it all over again in 2016, but on a national scale; we're told Honda racers in Northern California and as far away as Chicago will also be able to get in on the action.
