We were entrusted with the suspension setup on two Racing Honda Civics. The cars were rebuilt and prepared by Snodhurst Garage for racing in the Classic and Modern Motorsport Club (CMMC) Southern Saloon Car Series.

After first measuring the corner weight balancing the suspension was set up for racing. Further tweaks to the suspension were made following testing on the track.

Unfortunately, on race day, one of the cars was not able to start due to last-minute gremlins. The other car was raced at Brands Hatch GP circuit by Kam Tunio. Kam felt so comfortable with the car that he was able to push hard taking two class wins on the day and recording the fastest ever lap time for the Tin Top series at the GP circuit.

Kam set a time of 1:44.886, with the 1600cc Civic, beating all the cars in the Tin Tops classes to win race one. Finishing in 2nd place in the Tin Tops in race two showed just what a difference a well set up suspension can make.
