JWRC HT81S at new TAJIMA International Automotive Center

Here comes the new TAJIMA International Automotive Center, and there are loads of cars from the Suzuki Sport, Monster Sport and Tajima Shop that were displayed at the front door of TAJIMA.

One of the Ignis was previously mention in my blog and during that time, I am not sure for what purpose these car was taken out of the garage. Now I know this is to promote the legacy of Tajima during all these year on developing very unique and championship winner car. The picture above show another Ignis in JWRC form which was the only one in yellow out of all the car display there.

JWRC Ignis are truly a legend in its own and I am proud to own one too… not the JWRC version of course.

Monster Proshop Yokohama Show Off Race Car


Both the above photo was from Monster Shop Yokohama facebook page. I not sure why they put all their race vehical outside the building, maybe for a yearly factory floor cleaning.
But the interesting car is the 4 door ignis which is mod to off road track specification. Anyway, it is a interesting little car. Single seater with extra high suspension together with big rear wing. I wonder when they will use this car for and what races it enter.

HT81S with telemetry on track

This time, I would like to share a video which show HT81S with telemetry around the track. The telemetry design are interesting and really informative.

The interior of the HT81S are standard but there are something on the DIN there which I couldn't identify. Other items that I notice are the car is yellow in color with sparco seat.

How much do you miss HT81S in the news, and sometimes I just wish Monster Sport or Suzuki will review it again. Anyway, Monster Sport does post something short at their facebook page. It was a short view of HT81S in M18. The photo are their demo car and equip with a M18 engine in a sub-1 ton car.
They further mention that this car could last another 10 years with it current setup to compete with the current generation of sport compact car. That is such a big honor to a more than 10 years old car.
Do you feel the same to ? I do!

Impreza + Ignis Sport + Swift Sport

 
Does Ignis Sport still have the punch to play with Swift Sport and brother Impreza? This pretty much depends on the location of the playground. That's what happened on a road trip by these 3 cars to Sepang from Singapore. All 3 cars went on a road trip from Singapore into Malaysia using B-road and every car had a moment that worth sharing. I am not going to spoil the story here, so just visit the original page to read more about it.
Anyway, the photo are great and the stories too.

Top 7 Used Hatchback in UK?

I always feel that HT81S/HV81S is a under rated car and a future hidden gem. Why ? This is due to the  low entry cost for the car, low maintenance and great package given in the standard spec of the car. Something similar to Toyota AE86. I am not here to link Ignis Sport/Swift Sport directly to AE86 in terms of performance. But both are cheap to run, easy to maintain and both is simple car which is light weight with medium performance engine.
Now there are a review from UK that says that Ignis Sport being one of the top used hatchback in UK. I give it a 2 thumbs up to it and based on the list, I can safely say that Ignis Sport should be among the top 3 of that list.
Read the full review on the links below for what the author say about Ignis Sport.
