First of all, no, you don't need a Type R to attend! ITR Expo 17 and NSXPO will be held at Road America in Wisconsin this September. If you want to register for ITR Expo, do it soon as they organize a great event and driver spots are selling like hotcakes! http://www.itrca.com/register.php

Dan and I had an awesome time at Integra Type R Expo 16 at a gorgeous and high quality motorsports resort, Virginia International Raceway. This was my first High Performance Driving Event (HPDE) and this car was surprisingly capable and potent. I had truly excellent instruction that helped me push my limits. That car was squealing around corners and rolling tires.

Car:
Taffeta White CL-S 6-speed with Navigation and black interior (1 of 15)

Mods:
235/40/18 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires
18" Enkei PF01 wheels
CT Engineering Icebox intake
Hawk HPS brake pads
Decals & design by Rude Boy Racing

The J32A2 is a hell of an engine and this car was so planted out there with the tires/wheels borrowed from my husband and the CL's stock helical LSD. It was 85 degrees during some sessions, because Virginia makes no sense, and it's nice to be able to run A/C while on track because the CL has some torque.

10/10, would do again! I totally encourage you to find an HPDE in your area.
