I got a chance to see these guys run down South here at CMP. They compete in the "One Lap of America". Stupid fast for a Babyhauler. Single turbo as of last year. Couple of Honda Engineers from the Alabama Plant. Really pissed off the BMW M3 driver's they passed. Several Vids up VIR and Road Atlanta.

Apparently now only 1 of them are still running. But both ran in the 2006 One Lap of America. Im still trying to find the article about both.
(CTRL + F then type "odyssey" will find the cars faster then searching line by line)
Vtec.net seems to be down right now, but I know for sure the articles Im looking for are there. If I find them Ill post them.

The two Odysseys in that link are silver and red, so Im assuming they resprayed one of them Imola Orange. Im also not sure which one got treated to some boost.

These vans are still alive and running. The Orange turbo has been retired but the Red non turbo is still being used. We are currently working on a new 2011 model build. All the seam welding on the chassis is done and it will get the cage put installed in the next week or so. H&R is building the suspension now also,should be here in a few weeks.
We hope to return to the 2011 Tire rack One Lap of America with 2 Odyssey units.
The program was never shut down at all. We just had no budget because of the economy . We are waiting to hear if we get a budget for this year or not.
