Summer is here and so are the car meets. This year the Jsport team is putting the rubber to the road and getting out to show off some of our latest parts and Honda builds in person.
A few weeks ago we were invited to display and attended the Hondata Experience meet at Famoso Speedway in Bakersfield CA. We had a great time hanging out watching some drag racing while talking cars with some fellow gearheads. For this event we thought it would be cool to bring out one of our Honda Civic 5 door prototype carbon fiber wings and see all of the reactions in person from the 2000+ people in attendance. We thought it might catch some eyes, and catch some eyes it did. Fellow Honda fanatics were ecstatic to see an option for the Honda Civic 5 door that wasn’t like anything else on the marketplace.
Our next stop will be the Eibach Meet on May 4th in Fontana CA at the Fontana Raceway. This meet is going to be MASSIVE, running all day Saturday with thousands in attendance. Our team is excited to showcase some of our new and most popular products and even to offer some deals. If you missed the unveiling of the 5 door civic carbon wing this will be your chance to see it in person. If you are in southern California this is an event you won’t want to miss. After several years of attending the Eibach Meet we are beyond excited to be partnering with them and displaying as a vendor. Eibach has been a great connection for us at Jsport and they have become friends through racing over the years, come see what a great party they can throw!
Lastly, if you haven’t heard of Overland Expo, this is the year to start following it. Overlanding is a rapidly growing hobby that combines off-roading and the love of vehicles with camping and outdoor activity. The basic concept is to create a rig that you can drive directly to your remote camping location on serious off-road terrain, and then comfortably live out of it for an extended period of time. After the huge success of our overland style Ridgeline build for SEMA this past year we got right to work on putting together a Passport build for Overland Expo West. We will be unveiling a substantially modified Passport with a blend of accessories; some of which will be available for purchase, as well as a few prototypes.
The Overland Expo will be held in Flagstaff AZ on May 17th-19th. Our build will be on display in Honda’s paddock, you won’t be able to miss it. We’ll be set up there with a Jsport booth to talk shop, answer questions, and even sell some product if you are in the market. You can expect to see some amazing builds of all shapes and sizes at the event, and we hope you’ll take the time to check out our Passport build, it is going to be wild! Consider yourself warned that you won’t be able to look at the Honda Passport the same way ever again.
