SpeedHero July update (June Recap)

I can’t fathom how long and wild this month felt for SpeedHero. Let’s just dive in. The first event of the month was a special guest. Manabu Orido came by Platform Garage to say hello! He was in Victoria and decided to come by and visit us down at the shop. It was truly an honor. We exchanged a few gifts, photos, and car talk. Sadly I didn’t get a lot of photos, as I didn’t want to bother him too much, but there are a couple of pics from...
