Goals come about when you really want something. Perhaps you see someone have it, or maybe you perceive that thing as being the best possible choice within that situation. For some though, it’s by having a small sampling of something that gives them the motivation to work towards it.
Then, there’s working to achieve that goal. For intangible items like knowledge and emotion, you’ll need the most valuable resource – time. But, for tangible, material items, the journey to achieving that goal oftentimes involves money.
In an ideal world, we’d be able to unite our hobbies and passions with our career, letting us achieve tangible goals while enjoying every minute of the process. That’s easier said than done, and while it’s what many aspire to do, it’s what few actually manage to.
In this edition of Owners' Rides, we feature Christopher and his (now) perfect sport sedan, fitted with street legal POTENZA RE-71RS circuit driving tyres. As a business owner that runs an outfit retailing automotive performance products, he’s managed to amalgamate work and passion. The result of all that is his Honda Civic Type R you see here, his part-daily driver and part-development platform.
It all started when Christopher still owned a regular Civic 2.0, equipped with an automatic transmission. Not quite seeing what the fuss was all about, he took a ride in a friend’s Civic Type R and promptly fell in love with it. The rest, as they say, is history, and Christopher has spent nearly a decade with his Civic Type R.
