Although the new Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X no international homologation record, won Fumio Nutahara with the car rally.
FIRST SUCCESS: Nutahara carried out a series of fast-Evo X in Japan
The international homologation of the automobile federation FIA world is still several months in coming, but wanted the multiple Japanese champion and PWRC starter a first impression of his coming deployment device in the context of a championship run in his hometown.
And the trial use at the rally Kuma Kogen proved to be very successful and although the Nutahara actually a series vehicle to the launch went with a built-in addition Überollkäfig and other security components.
This, he sat on the asphalt event against competition from local and drew a first positive about his new Mitsubishi model. It praised the Japanese in comparison to its predecessor model, improved suspension and looks forward to the premiere of the car in the Rally World Championship.

Fumio Nutahara has given the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X its first victory, winning the weekend’s Japanese Rally Championship round. Nutahara claimed the national championship round, Kuma Kogen Rally, in a Lancer that isn’t yet fully developed and beat the likes of Subaru’s current model Impreza WRX.

"I found the suspension better than the Evo IX," reported Nutahara. "Asphalt in this test has many results, and [it] would have been quite complicated to guide the IX here.
"The car is much easier to drive, and the engine also responds better," continued Nutahara. "The only obstacle is that this car is 100 kg heavier."
Nutahara has a long association with the Japanese manufacturer, having competed in Lancers internationally since 1999 in an Evo V. Since then the 39 year-old has contested several Production Car World Rally Championships with the Advan-PIAA Rally Team, and the Asia Pacific Regional series, where he finished fourth in 2003.
