Race Track Tow Point

I'm going for a Track Day on Friday. Although its not required, it would be helpful to have a tow point aside from the hook point under the front passengers side. I'm afraid that towing from there will damage the front spoiler. Is there a screwin tow point?

With the factory hook point should be able to feed it directly through the front bumper. It's mounted to the crash bar behind the horn. You'll have to cut out some of the faux venting.

Cutting out the plastic behind the vents seems to be a common mod by those tracking the CTR. I know this was in a response to some reports that Type R's were overheating on the track last year.

IMO directing air to somewhere useful would be ideal.
Its why I miss having brands like Mugen and Spoon around, odds are their race cars would have it and hopefully give us something to model after.

If you look at any of the professional racing variants of the Type R, they've all replaced the stock venting. Also wouldn't hurt if you plan on tracking to go with an aftermarket intercooler.

The TCR variant has a completely redesigned front bumper, with proper air channels. I don't think this is something that we'll ever see from factory, but I would like for there to be some similar aftermarket options.
