Went do to Interpro yesterday with my startion racing friend to watch a Lancer RR day.
Arrived to find a good few Lancers there, inc Simon Norris's own car.
Simon had promised my friend a run in the Evo, and one of Simons friends said he was on his way down, but he could have a drive of his Lancer
Leightweigh, and not much grip - that was a very fun car!
Then Simon turns up in the Evo:
0-60 sub 3 secs
top speed 200mph +
and offers to take us round the block
I have to jump in the back, sort wedged between the seat and the rollcage, and braced myself.......
What can I say about this car
Its awsome! Fitted with a sequential box, there was no lag between gears, and the acceleration make your stomack go all funny - like the feeling you get from a big drop rollercoaster!
In a very, and I mean very short space we really moving, ever gear slotted the car just pulled harder and harder, and Ive never experienced anything like it before - Im even still grinning now, and Im also sure I dented the rollcage as I was hanging on so tight
