With a renewed interest in actually getting out and racing in 2011 and beyond IPG is going to explore more avenues and different forms of racing and this started with the IPG Christmas present of a 1993 Acura Integra setup to run in the SCCA ITA class.
This car was built back in 2009 and raced one event in 2009 but has sat in a garage since then until we found it available for sale only 45 miles from the shop. After some research and deliberation we decided that this would be the perfect starter car to introduce IPG to the road racing community. We plan on taking things slow with the Road Racing program to begin with and will expand from there if we have the success that we expect. We will of course update as we have new information, pictures, video's, etc and also will announce races that we plan on attending during the 2011 year if you are interested in coming to an event to see what it is all about.
Here is a brief rundown of that parts that are currently installed on that car and these are the parts we will be using for the time being until we get our own test sessions and data gathered in regards to the Integra.
