The ATRacing team uses the Enkei PF01 Racing Series wheel.
ATR (Associate Team Racing) is an extra-curricular activity for Honda Canada associates. The goal is to simply share the joys and challenges through the spirit of racing with any interested associates. Vehicles and funding are supported by Honda, but the team is run completely on personal time.
In the true spirit of racing, we have been competing in the local sanctioned time attack series known as SoloSprint. SoloSprint is an entry level, low cost, grassroots motorsport organization in Ontario. The competition style is that of a single car time attack where no wheel-to-wheel racing is allowed. There are 8 to 10 events throughout the summer. Top 6 event points go towards the series championship. Each event draws 40 to 60 competitors. http://www.soloontario.com/about_solo.html
On top of Solosprint, ATR attends numerous lapping days and occasional tuner time attack events. We have been feature displays at events such as Montreal F1, Toronto Indy, Honda-Tech, Import Expo/I Love Honda, as well as a number of Honda associate events.
In previous years, we have run 2 Civic Sis and a Fit Sport. This year we have installed a Kraftwerks Supercharger kit into our 2007 Civic Si Sedan. Power to the front wheels were tuned to 320 HP. The interior is completely removed and seats have been replaced with racing buckets. The sunroof and roof panel have been removed and replaced with just a roof skin. KW Clubsport coilovers give us our handling, while Enkei PF01s wrapped with Yokohama A048s give us our traction. Hondata has been a continuous supporter with their ECUs and tuning equipment. Skunk2 has also provided engine and suspension components. Exhaust systems were provided by Vibrant Performance.
Team members consist of associates from many departments. Mainly R&D, Engineering, and Technicians. Drivers this year are, David Ezaki, Jonathan Weir, and Bryan Sperandei.
