To properly showcase the capability of the RE-71RS, Bridgestone provides us with a Honda Civic Type R endurance race car that had run at the 25 hours of Thunderhill NASA (National Auto Sport Association) endurance race. With a stripped-out cabin, roll cage, improved aero and a big wing, the Civic delivered exceptional handling with quick response and strong braking. We shared the track with the NSX Type S, and the 600-horsepower supercar had to move over so we could fly past in the Civic. The Honda never slipped, and there was no understeer even when diving hard into corners. When we returned to the pits, the tires were hot but still had plenty of life in them.
