Mitsubishi Lancer Register Annual 30-130 Event - RAF Marham 

After many weeks of preparation, Ross Walker of Rosssport, drove his 900bhp Rosssport/AP-Tuning prepared Evo 6 to a new MLR record of 5.84 seconds for the 30-130 event. Competitors are expected to accelerate from 30-130mph within a marked out 'box', under controlled conditions. AP-Tuning built a high tech 2000cc motor featuring Alloy Rods, Forged Pistons and with a Rosssport GT42 Turbo kit. Nitrous Oxide (NOS) was used to assist spooling of the turbo. Despite causing damage to the engine earlier in the day as the result of a missed-gearshift, the AP-Tuning team carried out some track-side repair work which put the car back into the competition and although Gary of AP-Tuning wasn't entirely happy with the way the car was running, Ross was still able to deliver a record-breaking performance, snatching the title from Simon Norris of Norris Designs who set an already staggering time several years ago.

Well done Ross!
