Reaching Out to Students

Earlier this week one of Compass360 Racing’s new Grand-Am KONI Challenge Civic Si’s was on display as part of the “Career Day” activities at Lincoln Alexander Secondary School in Brampton, a suburb of Toronto. This school is interesting because it places a very strong emphasis on the trades. For example, it has an amazing wood-working shop. More importantly for us, it has a highly-respected automotive program, which we were on hand to support.

Our bright-orange Honda was situated strategically at the entrance to the school, and although the temperature was a less-than-balmy 4 degrees C (about 38F), we had a constant crowd of students talking to us. They were curious to learn about the KONI series, and were amazed to see how we take a normal street car and turn it into a racer.
