Conshohocken’s Hamid Basbous will be appearing in the second season of NBC Sports Networks Octane Academy. The second season kicks-off on June 17th. Basbous is a graduate of Plymouth Whitemarsh High School and owns Pro Motor Sports on Matsonford Road.
Season two of Octane Academy is described this way on its website:
Get ready for a whole new season of pedal-to-the-floor mayhem as 24 of the hungriest young guns in motorsports battle it out to be crowned champion of Octane Academy. Ken Block, Brian Deegan, Tanner Foust and Vaughn Gittin Jr. are all back and pumped to put their team of recruits through a meat-grinder of intense challenges, all while Todd Richards attempts to put some method to their madness. When the smoke clears, the victor will drive away with the ultimate prize: A life-changing experience to train with one of the pros, along with a Ford Racing Scholarship, a fresh new Ford vehicle and the opportunity to attend an elite driving school.
