Hitech Motorsport SS2000 Review
Hitech customer Phil Brown had another strong season with his Toyota Corolla in the SS2000 class. With several 1600cc class wins, and a few race wins also.
Phil suffered a major set back at the Pukekohe round in December after a massive roll over at turn one. Hitech Motorsport carried out a big rebuild over the next three weeks, finishing the car late on Christmas Eve, so Phil could compete at the next round.
Other Hitech Motorsport customers performing strongly in ss2000 this season included Datsun 1200 drivers Rick Bone and Duncan Hedges. Rick won the 1600 cc class, with Phil finishing 2nd in class. Rick finished an impressive 3rd overall in the championship, with Phil 5th overall.
Phil's car is currently in our workshop, under going another major rebuild. This time we are fitting a Honda S2000 engine and gearbox. This involves cutting the firewall, and fabricating a new firewall, engine mounts, gearbox tunnel and mounts, etc. Phil is aiming to be the car to beat next year. so keep an eye out for the camouflage Corolla next season.
