We’ve felt extremely bad for Under Suzuki. He has worked his rear-end off all year long, only to miss out on competing in the 2018 Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge by a whisker. Fire Ando of Team Escort Racing Service must’ve felt the same way too, as he hung up his overalls and threw to the keys to Under.
The Mitsubishi Evo was prepped for Under’s session, and Fire Ando gave him the rundown of how to handle the billet-block monster.
Under made his way out onto Sydney Motorsport Park for the first time this year. He looked comfortable in the Evo; used to horsepower such as this. The track conditions were clear, until a lap in.
Yet again, the Sydney rain gods wanted to up the excitement for the crowd — and they delivered. Soon after, Under was sliding the 1000-plus horsepower Evo through a number of turns.
With what has had to be the second most exciting part of Saturday’s competition, we can’t thank Fire Ando enough for letting us see Under drive — especially in one of our personal favourite cars!
