Swift. Swifter

A one-make Suzuki Swift Sport rally championship? Why the hell not?

Suzuki Swift Sport

Top Gear likes the Suzuki Swift Sport. Top Gear particularly likes rally prepped Suzuki Swifts going sideways across gravel, which is why we're very happy to hear that the one-make Swift Sport Cup kicks off this weekend at the Pirelli International Rally.

OK, so bunging a roll cage into a Swift Sport and fitting it with uprated springs and brakes before setting it loose on the British countryside might not be the most revolutionary idea, but hey, it looks cool and we really want to drive one.

Especially because the winner of the Swift Sport series will bag a fully funded drive in this year's Wales Rally GB in a works Suzuki Swift Super 1600.

Suzuki reckons the championship will be 'the best one-make series ever in British rallying', which got us thinking: what would be the coolest car to base a single-make rally series around? We like the idea of a Chrysler 300C championship...

Now share it...
