Recommended Car[edit]

The Lupo GTI Cup Car (J) '03 which is won in the European Hot Hatch Championship event is the car of choice here. Even in stock form, the GTI Cup should allow an average driver to comfortably win the event.

For B-spec, as the opposition are slightly tuned you may need to tune the car to match and better them. You'll also have to invest in some Sports:Hard tyres, as the racing tyres that come with the GTI Cup are not permitted in the B-spec event.


The event consists of one individual race:

Takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Course length is 12.95 miles, longest straigh is 1.33 miles and elevation gap is 984.2 feet.
