Born from Mitsubishi’s Lancer Evolution Experience program that’s run in conjunction with the Jim Russell Racing Drivers School at Infineon Raceway, the Lancer Evolution Experience Challenge invites the fastest participants from the Lancer Evolution Experience back for a second taste.
The format for the Challenge event pitted 11 drivers against each other on an autocross course, with the field narrowed down to the top eight with the fastest times. The combatants were then paired up to battle head to head on a two-lane, mirror-image autocross course; the winner moving on, the slower driver eliminated. This bracket format saw the final four making it to the semifinals, then down to the two quickest drivers for the grand finale.
Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc., (MMNA) congratulates Mark Nason of Reno, Nevada, for scoring a sensational victory in a rain-soaked and highly competitive ’10 Lancer Evolution Experience Challenge. Along with one year’s bragging rights, the victorious driver scores use of a top-flight Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR (or any other Mitsubishi vehicle of the winner’s choosing). You go, Mark.
