Dai Yoshihara and Evasive sets new S2000 Buttonwillow Record! 1:41.20

If there’s any application that Evasive Motorsports is known for, it’s got to be the Honda S2000. Years in the making, this is our 4th major build involving this platform. After running it at Global Time Attack last year at the Long Beach Grand Prix, we decided to take it to another level. Previously, this build was powered by an upgraded HKS GT Supercharger with a GTS8555. However, we weren’t satisfied with the power at 450whp. So we went back to our roots and asked HKS to support us in switching our setup to a turbocharger. For those that remember our EVO IX, HKS supported the turbo setup on that project. With an Origin Fab custom turbo manifold, we mounted an HKS GT6290 BB turbo to the TODA stroked F22C. With the help of NCS Designs, the car was tuned to 640whp.

With Dai Yoshihara at the helm, the car did its first shakedown at this past weekend’s Global Time Attack finals event. Dai was able to clock a new S2000 record lap of 1:41.2. He thinks he can get it down to 1:40 in the current setup. We’ll have to return to see. View the record setting lap below along with interview and overview with Dai Yoshihara.

Dai Yoshihara & Evasive Motorsports earns 2nd in Exhibition Class at PPIHC!

We’re happy to announce that Dai Yoshihara and Evasive Motorsports finished the race with a time of 11:06.205, placing 2nd in the Exhibition class at Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 2022! We were also the fastest EV of the weekend with our Tesla Model 3, while placing 9th overall out of 71 finishing competitors.

It was a treacherous race day as extremely cold and wet conditions hampered everyone on competition day. Prior, the week had been dry and moderately warm, providing great conditions to allow us to qualify 4th. Nonetheless, being our eighth year at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, we had to be prepared for any condition the mountain would bring. Yokohama provided us A005 racing slicks but also supplied A006 tires for wet conditions.

As Dai drove up the 14,115 ft. summit, he tackled “the most challenging driving conditions in [his] racing career.” Along with rain, fog covered almost the entire mountain, limiting drivers’ visibility. This even caused several drivers to go off course and crash. Dai’s extensive experience as Formula Drift driver and growing up on the Touge of Japan played a crucial role in his ability to feel the road and dynamically adjust to ever changing conditions.

We can’t wait until the next time we return to the mountain!

Evasive Motorsports returns to the 100th Running of Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

Evasive Motorsports will be running the Tesla Model 3 for the second time at the 100th running of Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. It’s Evasive Motorsports 8th time competing at the event. If you remember, we had some technical issues with car last year and was unable to run the car at full power. We hope for redemption this year as we bring it back to one of the most famous race events in the world.

Dai Yoshihara will once again pilot the car up the mountain in the Exhibition division. To refresh the look, our good friend Jon Sibal was enlisted to revamp the livery for 2022. You can see the renders and how well it came out. Along with the new look, we’ve updated and improved suspension, aero, tires, cooling.
