This is awesome! But why the 1.0L and not another G13B or something bigger?

I have one that I am prepping for some sprints later in the year. I can enter the sub 1 litre class and race against Goggomobiles and I don't have to worry about breaking a gearbox.

This is for #Club1000, a club for cars under 1050cc with stock engines built street legal for the Nürburgring.
Basicly made because s**t is getting out of hand with the money thrown at cars at the Nürburgring driving tourist laps.

So a lot of people have Micras or Yaris, Corsas, Aygos etc.
We have over 60 members already and counting.

Ive done a lot with my old GTi, but this is a fun thing to do until i finish my RX7 :D

As "they" say, "It is more fun to drive a slow car fast than to drive a fast car slow".

No, it had airjacks when it competed in the mid 2000s, but when i bought it the cage was mostly cut out and i had the cage built on the front pipes, the rear one is in the spare wheel well connected to a strut bar.
