Out with the old, in with the new:
V8 supercars has always had varied backup series, but this is one I’ve surprisingly not heard of before - the Improved Production Car Championship.
Basically, you take a car that’s either 1)a car that’s homogulated by the FIA in Group A, recognised by CAMS for Group 3J, or otherwise commercially available through dealerships at some point, as long as more than 200 examples were sold and registered for road use. So, in other words, regular street cars.
Then, you modify it - safety equipment, brakes, suspension, and engine mods, as long as they’re within reason, and engine swaps as long as they’re from the same manufacturer as the body.
What’s the short version? You can see all sorts of modified production cars fighting it out on a fast, technical v8 supercar track. And the drivers are all absolute fucking maniacs.
The red civic is being driven by Jordan Cox, one of the craziest motherfuckers on the field, who is also his own lead mechanic. Here’s his in-car.
