Lester Rivera

Lester Rivera has competed in a few events since purchasing and modifying his 1997 Honda Civic Type R. Since taking ownership, he's swapped the motor with a 1997 JDM Honda ITR engine, along with a Skunk2 Racing throttle body and intake manifold, and converted it to right-hand drive. He’s also fitted the Civic with Desmond Regamaster EVO wheels wrapped in Falken Azenis tires. Rivera is planning on building a new head and is also hoping to give the engine a boost.
