I am a car fanatic obsessed with all types of performance cars and auto racing. This is my *evolution* from a driving enthusiast to race car driver of a Mitsubishi Evolution IX.

NASA Event #1 – Pikes Peak

Posted by hammer On May - 21 - 2010

The 2010 NASA Rocky Mountain season kicked off at Pikes Peak International Raceway in Fountain, CO. Since we were new to NASA this season we were assigned to HPDE 3 to prove to the officials we were safe and aware on the track. So the MW3 Evo did some testing in group 3 and worked out some kinks for when we come back later in the season.

PPIR is a pretty well known track across the country which used to hold NASCAR, IRL and various other touring series. The track was sold and sat unused for a stint and is now back and in great condition. Primarily known for its “oval” configuration, PPIR actually has a tight, technical infield road course that is challenging to all makes and models. We ran the “roval” configuration going counter-clockwise for the event which includes turn 1 and 2 on the oval and then dives into the infield for the twisty bits.

Fitted with new dba rotors, Agency Power brake lines, Motul RBF 600 and fresh Hawk pads, the Evo withstood the intense braking that PPIR dished out with zero brake fade all day.
