|Nationality||Japanese||Year||1980-1989||Tyres||Unrestricted () / Comfort:Soft ()|
 Recommended Car
The Honda MUGEN MOTUL CIVIC Si Race Car '87, won for completing the Clubman Cup in A-Spec, is the car of choice for this event. In stock form, It's considerably better than the opposition. You actually cannot modify this car much more except for a Stage 3 engine tuning costing 30k for a gain of approxiately 65HP while a simple oil change can boost a quick 10HP.
For B-Spec, you'll need to purchase and downgrade the tyres to Comfort:Soft to meet the entry requirements, and buy some tuning parts to compensate for your drivers' ability.
Alternately for B-Spec, the Toyota Minolta 88C-V Race Car '89 that you win for Like the Wind in A-Spec laps competitors in both races without any coaching.
