My name is Richard and ever since I was a young boy I've always loved cars. A few years ago I bought a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 1, the first model ever created and produced for the Japanese market only.
About three months after having bought the Evo the engine gave up and it needed some real fixing up.
I decided to take the entire car apart and restore everything. The engine was upgraded to produce around 400bhp and all parts renewed. I replaced all rubber parts and cleaned everything.
€15000,- and half a year later the Evo was reborn and I started taking it to the drag strip. We went to events throughout Europe and performed really well, I even managed to get into the 11 seconds on the 1/4 mile!
After a few years of racing I decided to take it to the next level. The Evo was to have an engine producing around 800bhp and we were going for a time under 10 seconds.
I bought all the parts, had an engine delivered, reinforced the chassis and prepared the Evo to handle such power but still keeping it street legal. Unfortunately when all the parts were there, something terrible happened. Parts went missing and to this day I haven't been able to get them back. They were never replaced or paid for and I had to stop as my funds had run out.
After about a year of focusing on my job I have now decided that having the Evo standing still without parts is not what it was made for and I wish to now continue building towards my dream; a '9 second or less' 1000+bhp Evolution 1 that is still street legal and parts tribute to the great legacy of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.
Help me fund the amount needed to restore the Evo to its former glory. Videos of the races will be uploaded and from all donations made I will pick a lucky winner to take to one of the races.
