New Honda arrives for Evans’ 2010 ARC campaign
- 25th January 2010, 3:38pm
Inside a dull red shipping container at Honda Australia HQ was his new toy, an Italian J.A.S Motorsport-built Honda Civic Type R for his assault on the 2010 Australian Rally Championship.
On seeing the car Eli remarked, “It looks fast even sitting still!” Slipping behind the wheel, he said it fitted like a glove and immediately felt like home.
“I can hardly wait to drive it,” he added and with the first shakedown due to take place on February 11, Eli doesn’t have too many sleeps to go before he drives the car he hopes will catapult him to his first ARC crown.
The first round of the Australian Rally Championship is a tarmac event based in Burnie, Tasmania from February 26 to 28.
