The Supaloc Mitsubishi EVO has been upgraded to now include the new Supaloc Suspension system recently developed by Oscar Fiorinotto. During the installation a detailed review of damper setting and spring rates was completed to ensure the best possible performance during this weekend's ASP Mt Alma Hill climb.

Last years inaugural event saw Andrew Burnard place the EVO VIII in the top 12 shootout for outright honours, however with the new state of the art Supaloc Racing suspension components he will be pushing for a much improved result.

"The competition for this years event will be tough with around 20 EVO's competing in a field of 150 other competitors, so I am looking forward to putting the new set up into action. I would like to thank Oscar and the crew at Supaloc Racing for their efforts and support for the event," explained Andrew.

The Hill climb is run along a 1.6km stretch of the Mount Alma Road, 3.5km from the Victor Harbor to Yankalilla Road at Hindmarsh Valley. A run along the 'Mile' is eight turns, two chicanes, a total climb of 140 metres and 18 gear changes, all in the space of 43 seconds for last year's winner, Kevin Mackrell. The road will be closed for the event from 11am until 5.30pm on Saturday 10 April and 8.30 until 5.30pm on Sunday 11 April.

So, if you are free this weekend, take a trip down to Victor Harbor and pop by.  Entry is free!
