Under $75k Hot Tuner Challenge Category
In August of 2010 thirty of Australia's top modified street legal vehicles swamped the Eastern Creek Circuit for Motor Magazines 2nd ever Hot Tuner Challenge. These vehicles were then devided up into 3 major categories: Under $75k, $75<$150k and $150+k. After Evolve taking out the Bang for Buck category with its Polo GTI and our parent company Fitzgerald Racing Services taking the overall cake with its monster Porsche 911 turbo in last years Challenge, we decided to come back for more! This year with a stronger, faster and more powerful force we entered our latest edition the E-Sport 135i and M3S as well as a 997 GT2 and 997 GT3 from Fitzgerald Racing Services.
Motor have just released the results for the Under $75,000 Category in their October issue in which they split the category into 3 further fields; Japanese, European and Australian vehicles. Evolve Technik is proud to announce that its E-Sport 135i took out the European field with flying stars and placed 10th overall for the Under $75k behind some monster HP Aussie brutes. We have been extremely pleased with this result as we had only purchased the 135i 2 weeks prior to the event and had limited time for modifications. To read more please check out the article in our NEWS segment.
Motor shall be releasing the $75k<$150k results in their next issue. We look forward to seeing how our NSW Dealer 'City Performance Centre' weighs up with its Monster Mercs.
