Default EG Civic murdering people in Australia Improved Touring.

This is some of the best racing I've seen in a while. Currently a kid named Jordan *** is tearing things up in the Australian Improved Touring series. It is a multi-class race and although he is in the lower class and down on power he's been having some amazing battles including against the top cars of the class above him.

Battling for overall victory against the top class AE86. Best stuff starts at about 8:10 where a few seconds later you'll see the AE86 rocket by with power and then the battle is on.


Outside view.

Bathurst.

Yup, Jordan is showing what a properly sorted Honda can do.

That last video where he's racing the Celica is flat out amazing. Here's a better video of that race, start it around 3:00 or so.


It appears he's running low low spring rates and it's almost stock ride height, that's how he gets the car to transition like that.

He is making that track about 0.10 miles longer per lap than everybody else which gives him more exit speed. What a way to use that track!

That Bathurst race got me hooked and now I'm watching his other races. They are just as good as the Bathurst race. Dude can manhandle that Civic.
