Mitsubishi and the Jim Russell Racing Drivers School are up to their old tricks, much to the benefit of Lancer Evolution owners and fans of performance driving everywhere. Version 2.0 of the adrenaline-pumping program keeps the momentum of Lancer Evolution Experience I rolling. The new “more intensive, competition-focused experience” is also conducted at California’s Infineon Raceway, and race-prepped, rollcage-equipped Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Xs are again the weapons of choice.
The Lancer Evolution Experience II is only open to students who have completed the $995 first course; the second course ($1,295) begins with a light refresher and then builds on what students learned during their first experience. The curriculum is geared more for drivers looking to improve their performance in timed competitions like time attack, autocross, rallying or road racing.
