Skunk2 Nostalgia: Laguna Seca, 2001
Get the Flash Player to see this video.
By 2001, Skunk2's racing heritage had already been established with success in both drag racing and road racing. That same year Roger Foo piloted his Skunk2-powered Civic hatchback to the lead at Laguna Seca, finishing first against teams with larger budgets and even more support. Foo's win reinforced what could be done with the right parts and the right people. Enjoy the nostalgic footage we've just stumbled across.

You going to give proper credit for this Dave? Who was your chief mechanic in 1999-2003? Who built this 200+ whp B16A? It was my good friendr Steve R.better known as OmniMan. I had a little tiny contribution in this too, as the car ran my DC Sports 4-2-1 ceramic header. The "skunk chip" was the Mugen Group-A chips, and who gave you those? Mr. San of AAI... he hooked you up with lot of Mugen stuff and that connection was owed to James. On top of all of this, it was Roger Foo's awesome qualifying effort and driving that made this HUGE GRASSROOTS effort possible. Did you even sponsor Roger any physical dollar for this race weekend? Or was it just the engine build? Did Roger have to pay anything?
