Recommended Car[edit]

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.


The event consist of two individual races:

Autumn Ring course length is 1.83 miles, longest straight is 0.26 miles and elevation gap is 98.4 feet, takes approximately 8 minutes to complete. Total distance is 9.17 miles.

Deep Forest Raceway Reverse course length is 2.24 miles, longest straight is 0.48 miles and elevation gap is 148.3 feet, takes approximately 8 minutes to complete. Total distance is 11.19 miles.
