Tamiya – Suzuki Swift Super 1600 – M03M

Introducing a new Mini chassis designated M03-M with
body based on the popular Suzuki Swift, which made its racing debut in the 2005
Junior World Rally Championship (JWRC).

About the Suzuki Swift

The
Junior World Rally Championship is a companion series to the WRC, restricted to
drivers under age 28 driving 2WD vehicles. The new Suzuki Swift was unveiled at
the 2004 Paris Auto Salon, as the company’s ambitious strategy against European
small car makers. The Swift Super 1600 made its racing debut at Round 5 – Rally
of Finland of the JWRC. Despite suffering a tire puncture, the Swift made an
impressive 3rd place finish for a spot on the podium. English driver Guy Wilks
scored another 3rd place finish in the following Round 6 in Germany. Unfortunate
accidents in the final Round 7 kept the Swift off the podium, but the car’s
impressive potential helped driver Wilks score second overall in the points
ranking.
