MITSUBISHI MIRAGE R5 – new car to the Rally Hokkaido

This year, Rally Hokkaido became more colourful with more high-performance rally cars competing for victory. In addition to MRF’s Skoda Fabia R5, Cusco Racing is driving the same car, as well as Vitz 4WD which participated in Rally Hokkaido 2016. However, probably most exciting addition to the event was MPart Sport’s Mitsubishi Mirage AP4.
It is Mitsubishi, but developed by MPart, which deploys 1620cc version of Mitsubishi’s 4B11 engine producing 280hp @ 7500rpm. Surprisingly, the car can come as LHD or RHD, and can be prepared as AP4 or R5+, all depends on customers’ requirements.
In this rally, three of them participated with Ketomaa, Blomberg and Takale as their drivers. Unfortunately, Ketomaa and Sanjay retired at Leg 1, but Sanjay returned per Rally 2 regulation and Blomberg started the day in 2nd place in unofficial classification.
Let’s see how the rally goes for Blomberg!
