Episode Three of CarAdvice’s new Racing Basics series is now live. And it’s all about a subject made famous by the Fast and Furious franchise: shifting.
In this episode, Australian rally icon and Global Rallycross driver Chris Atkinson hops into the new 150kW/265Nm turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder Hyundai Elantra SR Turbo to show you how to change gears correctly. That means being smooth and fast, not rough.
Although this is the final episode of our initial three-part Racing Basics series, we’re working to bring you more soon. So, if there are other racing techniques or skills you’d love for us to highlight, let us know what they are and we’ll add them to the list.
CarAdvice genuinely hopes you’ve enjoyed Racing Basics so far, and would like to extend a big thank you to Chris Atkinson and Hyundai Australia for getting involved.
