|Honda and Acura racers won four Sports Car Club of America national titles and claimed a 1-2 finish in the inaugural B-Spec category, run as a exhibition class, in last weekend's SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Road America.
More than three dozen Honda and Acura racers traveled to the classic Road America road course in Wisconsin for this year's 49th annual Runoffs, September 17-23, taking part in 13 of the 30 competition classes.
Five drivers used the Honda L15A7 engine in Formula F at this year's Runoffs, a record for the manufacturer in this open-wheel, training-ground category. Tim Kautz made history on Friday as the first Honda-powered Formula F National Champion, after a race-long battle with defending class champion Lewis Cooper.
'I was hoping the two of us could break away from the pack and make it a two-car fight, and that's what happened,' Kautz said. 'On the last lap, it came down to whoever got the better run out of the last corner and, fortunately, we were able to pull it off. It was a great race. Thanks to Honda. They gave us a great engine. You just put it in and go. That reliability allowed me to focus my efforts on improving the chassis and my racecraft.'
