The 311RS Project
In 2008, Ryan Gates entered a Time Attack competition with his close-to-factory 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X aka Gates311. He spent that year slowly gaining momentum and picking up a few sponsors on the way.
In 2009, he blasted through the gates winning every competition he entered in that season, setting 8 lap records…
and taking the REDLINE Time Attack Championship as well as the Super Lap Battle Championship title.
And he wasn’t done. Ryan and his team spent the last 3 years developing an “ideal” Mitsubishi EVO X for the masses. They called it the 311RS project.
The 311RS Evo X is tuned not only for the street but ready for the occasional weekend track day, and the best part – it comes with a full warranty.
Ryan had then contacted me in creating a rendering for his 311RS project. He explained thoroughly the style & design, color scheme, upgrades and a unique livery he envisioned. Below is how I interpreted Ryan’s ideas.
It was crucial that a special build like this was documented with some serious camera gears. Check out the video.
Huge congrats to Ryan, his team and his partners.
