Racing Basics: Episode Three

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.
