You can see some early 80s action on the track in the wet!
During the take off you can see a yellow pace car at 22 seconds and 34 which looks very much like a Carina Coupe. Its front lights are square, rear lights are long and wide and its boot has a tiny flat spot. So I think this pace car must be a Carina A6 Coupe.
To keep up with these small Honda City turbos it most probably must have been the TA63 with the 3T-GTE engine. The 4AGE would not be quick enough to follow them: a City turbo racing spec did the 1/4 mile in 13.5 seconds!
As a bonus, another start of a Honda City race and this time it is really spectacular:
I know it must be a Levin bumper because the license plate fits on the grille itself an the Trueno bumper has its emblem over there. And the shape tells me it is a Zenki Levin bumper. It’s a pity both the Levin and Trueno AE92 were never delivered in Europe. The width of the Carina A6 is 1650mm (all models) while the Corolla E9 is 1655mm (all models). That means every E9 bumper will fit, so I’m not limited to the Levin and Trueno bumpers. 🙂
This week another short sighting:
Can you count all the Carinas in this picture?? 😉
I came to a total of 34 here, but I did not count the ones behind the group of people in the front row…
The extra difficulty is that this picture also contains Celica A60s (Supra MK2 is called Celica XX in Japan) and it is sometimes hard to distinguish a Carina Coupe rear from a Celica Liftback in the second or fourth rows.
