Quentin Boylan is a talented street racer and self-proclaimed Honda fanatic. He describes himself as an ordinary guy with an immense passion for fast cars, drag cars and motor racing which, he says, gives him a sense of fulfilment.
But, he’s not a one-man show. He is adamant that he couldn’t have achieved anything without his team and their ethos of “Teamwork makes the dream work”.
Some of the cars he and his team built to race include:
A 1971 Honda Civic completely refurbished and fitted with a B-series V-Tec motor and drive train
A Honda EG 6 fitted with a K-series engine and drive train which was the first all-motor car to break into the 10-second bracket in Africa on the quarter mile. This vehicle also holds two South African National Records in two different classes with a best time of 10.994 seconds at 192 km/h over 400 meters.
A 2000 Honda Civic affectionately known as King-K (named so due to his success with the Honda K-series engines). Previously this car pushed the envelope even further with a personal best of 10.224 seconds at 214.6 km/h over 400m. After dialling in the car they are now standing at 8.27 sec and 291km/h over a 400m standing start!
King-K which is their pride and joy will be touching down in the USA on the 22nd October 2018 where they hope to ‘join’ the exclusive 7-second club while competing in the Haltech World Cup Finals 2018. Follow Quentin on Instagram (@quentinboylan) and Facebook (Quentin Boylan).
Good Luck to him and his team, and thank you for showing us the Power of Dreams.
