1997 Integra Type R CDM (Canadian Domestic Market)

To get a baseline for suspension handling, we entered the first Autocross of the year on February 3rd, held by the UBC Sports Car Club. It is called “Slush Series” for a very good reason as it runs during the racing off season.
I also incorrectly classed the car in Autocross as Street Touring, when it should have been Street Prepared. Got some funny looks there. Anyways, our purpose was for Road Race tuning and not for competition so it really doesn’t matter.
Despite the minimal seat time associated with autocross, we were able to get a better feel of the car at its limit in the wet with our rain tires (Bridgestone RE11). Had an awesome time. Definitely cannot wait until we can get some laps in at Mission Raceway.
