Lacy Sports will be bringing their CR converted S2000 to play in HPDE plus. Since HPDE plus doesn't allow aftermarket aero, Aaron decided to convert his S2000 to a "Club Racer"  S2000. Since That particular model was put into production it makes Lacy Sport"s aerodynamics legal for HPDE plus.

Matt from RS motors/365 Racing is a true testament of what a street car can do. Although stock looking it has a well sorted out suspension package. Motor wise its pretty much stock but it doesnt stop Matt from putting down some blazing lap times.
