    Default Robispec / Yokohama goes for RL Street Tire Championship

    We are happy to announce a partnership between Robispec & Yokohama for the Redline Time Attack Street Tire Championship.

    Nils Leufven (driver) & Robert Fuller (crew chief) are going to campaign
    Robispec's red Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 8 for the full season, featuring
    Yokohama ADVAN AD08's, KW race shocks, Buschur built motor etc.... & some super duper brake pads that we cant even talk about yet!

    Between Nils' many overall class wins & robi's vast experience, we expect to
    be competitive right out of the gate & pushing hard through-out the year.
    The first event being the Big Willow (WSIR) time attack at the end of this
    month.

    more pics & updates in this thread to come.

    Sponsorship opportunities are being considered at this point, pls feel
    free to send us an email if interested.
