Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Race Car

September 16, 2008

Mitsubishi Motors UK has announced that it is developing a race-going version of the Lancer Evolution X in association with Southampton-based vehicle importation and compliance specialists SVA UK. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X race car will be competed at the Britcar Championship and will be driven by SVA’s managing director and former BTCC regular James Kaye and two other drivers who are yet to be named.

The racing version of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X race car is being constructed by ADR Motorsport, the same firm that already built and run the two-works Mitsubishi currently competing in the British Rally Championship. The race car will make its first public appearance and compete for the first time scheduled for the weekend of September 20th and 21st at the Britcar 24-hour race at Silverstone and will appear in the official red and chrome Ralliart livery.
