Hanging with faster cars is more of a mental challenge…
With a little 1.5L engine mated to a 4-speed transmission, skinny 175/60R13 unknown-brand all season tires, and 23 years old stock suspension. Our sexy beast was definitely an underdog in a race that was full of, turbocharged, V6, V8, rotary, high output variants.
We had to physically and mentally cope with the fast moving traffic without getting laugh at or throwing in the towel prematurely. Small goals, one baby step at time, were set mentally to keep our minds fresh and physically operating the car at its highest potential while preserving its reliability were the keys to stay in this endurance race.
How we did it? Check out the video below. Enjoy.
