It’s been a few years in the making, but Honda and Mazda’s tag-team effort to join forces with the SCCA and create a B-segment-specific racing series have been successful. In fact, Mazda’s communications officer, Dean Case, told us as many as four other manufacturers are “coming on board with B-Spec kits and contingency programs.”

Case also announced the availability of the Mazdaspeed B-Spec kit for the Mazda2.

Putting down the first few sentences of a feature like this 1987 Honda CRX Si is a little tougher than usual. It’s not the familiar story of picking up an old, used Honda, adding wheels and a drop before giving in and going all out on a full-blown build. Furthermore, to be clear, it’s also

Rodrez: It’s the measuring stick that offers as much speculation and attempts to discredit driver achievement as it does real-world data and raw, obsessively focused attempts to chip away at the clock. The Nurburgring serves as a standard by which most automakers set their sights. It arms internet debate specialists with numbers and comparisons by

It’s safe to say that Angel Pena, owner of this supercharged 2008 Acura TSX, has a “type.” Having been enamored with Acura’s entry-level sedan ever since it was first introduced, he knew right away he’d get his hands on one, and eventually, he did just that.
