In the pandemic era, having an amazing patio space is a godsend for a restaurant. But chef Brendan Collins and business partner Michael Greco had an uncommon problem: Even before Covid-19 hit, their patio at Fia—which opened in 2019 in Santa Monica, Calif.—was a little too inviting. “It has always been really difficult for us to seat the inside,” Collins says. As indoor dining fully reopened in California, the same problem remained—everyone wanted to dine on the picturesque patio—so the duo decided to make a change.

Up until its third generation, the FN2 that stayed in production between 2007 and 2011, one of the main characteristics of the Honda Civic Type R was its high-revving naturally aspirated engine. However, some chose to add turbochargers in order to extract more power from the Japanese hot hatch.

In both of F1’s two races at the Red Bull Ring, Alonso accused rivals of moving or staying ahead of him at the start by using the run-off area at the first corner. “The FIA should police more the track limits,” said Alonso after the first Austrian race. “In turn one I was the only one making a move into turn one at the start and the two cars that I overtook they missed turn one and the exit in front of me.”
