2016 had a great start for the Godspeed Project 9th Gen Civic owned and piloted by Ken Suen. Round 1 of the Pro-Am series for Global Time Attack at Buttonwillow Raceway Park went off without a single incident, which was a big relief as this was the first event back after my severe lung injury. I finished 1st place in Street Front Wheel Drive class with a 1:56.237 in my Daily Driven 2013 9th Gen Honda Civic SI. Not only was there a 13 second gap between 1st and 2nd place, which put my 9th gen as the 2nd fastest Street FWD car at the infamous Buttonwillow Raceway Park.
This event was used as a Shake Down for the vehicle which now has a freshly built K24 bottom end with a K20 head, High Compression on E85. After daily driving this set up and then putting it through its paces at Round 1, we can now move on to new suspension components and fine tuning to gain the time we know we are missing.
