Skip Barber Partners with HPD to Run 2022 Civic SI Race Car in TC America

Honda Performance Development (HPD), Honda’s official North American motorsports company, has announced an extension of its existing partnership with the Skip Barber Racing School (SBRS) to race the 2022 HPD Civic Si race car during the 2022 season of the SRO TC America series, the companies announced.

The 2022 HPD Civic Si race car, which made its first public appearance at the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, is based on the all-new 2022 Civic Si road car and represents the next-generation of HPD’s turn-key Civic race cars. Created, developed and tested in-house by HPD engineers, the race car is suited for touring car competitions including SRO TC Americas, amateur touring car series, club racing and dedicated track day use. The Skip Barber Race Team will field the 2022 HPD Civic Si race car in the SRO TC America series.

“At SBRS, we allow students to fine-tune their competition skills and earn a racing license to compete in touring car series,” said Anthony DeMonte, CEO of the Skip Barber Racing School. “The Skip Barber Race Team has achieved great success with the previous generation HPD Civic Si race car and the HPD TC Type R race car in SRO the past few years. We are excited to continue this legacy through the 2022 season with the 2022 HPD Civic Si.”

“The HPD Civic racing line-up is a proven ladder to moving up through touring car levels, with demonstrated success and dedicated HPD support at every level,” said John Whiteman, HPD Commercial Manager. “Our continued partnership with Skip Barber offers a great foundation for drivers looking to earn a competition license, and their program has consistently produced successful racers. We’re excited to see the 2022 HPD Civic Si continue this legacy in SRO next season with the Skip Barber Race Team.”
