Time Attack

ISSUE 14: July - September 2015

The latest issue of Evolution is, as ever, jam-packed with informative features, stunning cars and top-notch photography. All the main Evo-focused events from the last few months are covered, plus the raft of tech guides, car features, news updates, race reports and club profiles that you’ve come to expect from Evolution magazine.

We’ve put together a brief summary of the content you’ll find in issue fourteen below, though you can of course download the full magazine in digital format by following this link here.
A roundup of the comings and goings in the Mitsubishi Evo world over the last few months, plus the chance to have your car used as a Method Race Wheels demonstrator, some super grippy slicks from Toyo, and plenty more besides.

Black Mamba
We’re used to seeing Evos making massive power figures and boasting pin-point sharp chassis, but Andy Papageorgiou’s Evo carbon-fibre Evo VIII really does take things to the next level. We caught up with Andy to find out a little more about this certifiable Time Attack monster.

Vegas Hybrid
A childhood spent watching street racing and lusting after big-power Evos eventually led Adrian Oba to build his own, and the result is this, a 500bhp Evo IX with a Trevtec Motorsport engine, bulging arches and some bin lid sized brake discs – it truly is one of the best all rounders we’ve ever featured.

Brake pad swap
Big brakes and resulting confidence in your stopping ability will make you that much quicker round a lap, so high quality stopping hardware is well worth investing in if you’re considering competing in your Evo. We take you through the steps involved in fitting Endless MX72 pads to an Evo X SST.

On Top of the World
Drag racing isn’t a form of motorsport that’s particularly closely associated with the Mitsubishi Evo, but this hasn’t prevented Steve Bowen, self-confessed speed freak and full time roofer, from building this eight-second hooligan of an FQ-340.

Nathan Davis didn’t let an almost total lack of spare parts and repair panels put him off restoring his down at heel Evo V, he simply rolled up his sleeves and had the components he needed shipped halfway across the globe instead!

Over eighty MLR cars on display, beautiful weather and the deceptively tricky Castle Combe race circuit – a potent mix, and one that goes a long way towards explaining why Japfest is such a popular event.

Pace Ward MLR Sprint Series rounds 2 & 3
Bumper coverage of the last two rounds of the MLR print Series, including a soaking wet Oulton Park and a packed entry list for the ever popular Castle Combe round.

Time Attack rounds 1, 2 & 3
Three rounds of the kind of intense competition we’ve grown to expect from the UK Time Attack Championship, with all the action from Cadwell Park, a rain-hit Snetterton and a record breaking Brands Hatch.

MML Sports
Team Kibos continue their African rally adventure with a trip to the tough Zambian International Rally.

Evolution Life
A roundup of what MLR members from across the UK have been getting up to over the last three months.
