Default Honda Racing: Honda Performance Development Announces 2010 SCCA Runoffs Program

Honda Performance Development and American Honda have released details of their support program for Honda and Acura competitors during the 2010 Sports Car Club of America National Championship Runoffs, Sept. 20-26 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

"Our support program for the 2009 SCCA National Championship Runoffs was a critical component of the grassroots motorsports initiative we announced last year," said Erik Berkman, president of Honda Performance Development, Inc. "We were very gratified by the response we received from Honda- and Acura-powered Runoffs competitors at Road America.

"We are pleased to return with an expanded support program for the 2010 Runoffs, and to celebrate the accomplishments of all the drivers who carry the Honda or Acura banner."

To be eligible for support, all Honda competitors must be enrolled in the Honda Racing Line program and display the required "Honda Racing/HPD" or "Acura Motorsports" decals on their race vehicles. Registration for the Honda Racing Line will be offered on-site at Road America, in the Team Honda Research and Honda Racing paddock areas.

Administered by the SCCA on behalf of HPD and American Honda, these incentives will be distributed following the completion of the Runoffs:

  • $500 for starting a Runoffs event;

  • $500 for winning a Divisional Championship;

  • $2500 for winning a National Championship, with additional awards of $1500 and $1000 for second- and third-place finishes, respectively.

Honda/Acura competitors will be reimbursed with a $100 credit for reserving a paddock parking space at the Runoffs. The space must be reserved directly through Road America and prepaid by the competitor.

In addition to these benefits, American Honda will provide a catered hospitality tent on site, exclusively for Honda competitors and crew members. The tent will provide a lunch buffet from Tuesday, Sept. 21 through Saturday, Sept. 25.

Competitors may pick up their hospitality passes in the Honda Racing paddock at Road America.

Honda Performance Development (HPD) is the Honda racing company within North America. Founded in 1993, and located in Santa Clarita, Calif., HPD is the technical operations center for high-performance Honda racing cars and engines. In addition to its grassroots motorsports support programs, HPD is the single engine supplier to the IndyCar Series and competes in prototype sports-car racing under the HPD banner in the American Le Mans and European Le Mans Series.
