Last weekend, May 3rd and 4th, Team Alfaleh took their HG Performance built 2013 Mitsubishi Evo X to Spring Mountain to compete in NASA Time Trials. Dieter-Heinz Kijora said he saw “ambient temps up to 104′ so you can imagine what the track temps were. Thankfully there was a nice breeze throughout the weekend which kept the air moving.”
The car is running TT-U class this year and ran very well all day Saturday and Sunday in the extreme heat. The track at Spring Mountain has been changed since the last time NASA had an event there causing the times for all cars to be high initially. After a few laps the EVO X made some good improvement bringing the best lap time down from 2:48 to 2:26.829, good enough for a win on Saturday. The times Sunday were even better improving the best lap by 1 second to 2:25.904 just 0.637 from a double win for the weekend. The team gained some great information to take to the next event at Buttonwillow Raceway Park June 7th -8th.
