Discipline Focus // Tuner
Get that foot to the floor and drive it like you stole it in GRID Autosport’s Tuner Events!
The Tuner discipline will test your throttle management skills to the limit in Drift events, ask you to thrash Muscle cars and get fast and furious behind the wheel of Super Modified motors in Time Attack events and races.
Tuner events are all about style and control; you’ll be challenged to find the very edge of what your car can do, without taking it past the limit. And believe us, you’ll know when that limit is approaching as the crash barrier rapidly approaches the side of your car!
Speaking of cars, let’s take a look at the list of these sweetest of rides…

To find out a little more about what you’ll be getting up to and how to succeed in the Tuner discipline, we caught up with expert Car Handling Designer Katie Weeks and demanded some insider info…
“There are many classes in the Tuner discipline, including muscle, JDM, modified and drift.
First we have the Time Attack cars, featuring muscle cars and the Super Modified machines such as the Mazda Panspeed RX-7 and the Honda Civic 5Zigen. You are competing against the clock and not directly against other drivers. These are lighter, grippier versions of street cars, which are well balanced and around 500bhp.
Drift cars are rear wheel drive, with increased steering lock and short gears which amplify the level of torque. Controlling these cars requires coordinating the amount of counter steer, modulating the throttle and brakes to shift the weight balance, as well as careful use of the handbrake. Timing is essential, or else you will simply spin out.
The Tuner discipline is all about precision, timing and car control.”
