In 2015, Scion Racing returned to the infamous Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. This year’s car was the Mackin Industries Scion FR-S. Evasive Motorsports’ own Robert Walker piloted the Mackin Scion FR-S, which was specially rebuilt by Evasive Motorsports and GReddy Racing for the rigors in this challenging event. It was Evasive Motorsports’ 3rd year competing in the event, this year with Mackin’s vehicle.
Unfortunately, after a long week of enduring practice, the car’s engine gave out near the top of the peak on race day. It’s a shame, since data showed that it was on pace to take the fastest record by an FR-S at the event. It was the first year that we were unable to finish. But that’s how it goes in racing, and this is as unpredictable as it gets. Please enjoy the sights and sounds in this video as we tackled the infamous Pikes Peak. Determined as always, we vow to return with a vengeance. Until next year!

Eibach has developed a new Pro Street S coilover system for the BMW E46 M3! The Pro Street S was designed to focus on the chassis balance of the car which they were careful not to disrupt. They are height adjustable coilovers which can lower the car well beyond what the Pro-Kit springs can do and still maintain the weight distribution by corner weighting. The guys at Eibach tested these coilovers and ran some impressive lap times at Buttonwillow. Equipped with only street tires, the Pro Street S coilovers and their Anti Roll kit, they managed to put down a 2:04:42.

Pikes Peak International Hill Climb practice session has commenced this morning and we have photos for you! Scion Racing and automotive photographer Randy Ly brings you a mini collection of 5 amazing photos of the Mackin Industries Scion FR-S equipped with the Rocket Bunny aero kit driven by Robert Walker. Check out the photos below.
Scion Racing is no stranger to racing at one of the most prestigious races, not only in this country, but the entire world: the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. On June 28th, this 12.42-mile race held in Colorado Springs, CO has drivers and teams coming from all over the world in an attempt to “Race to the Clouds” and set a record in the process. Evasive Motorsports and GReddy have both built cars to compete, showing the performance capabilities of the Scion FR-S and Scion tC. Evasive’s FR-S was built originally for time attack racing, but did the PPIHC last year under the awesome driving skills of Robert Walker; GReddy campaigned a tC a couple years back and had Ken Gushi pilot a FR-S at last year’s event to a stunning performance that incorporated some of his drifting skills to move through the course with impressive speed to help him earn a Third place podium finish in his category.
This year, Scion Racing is looking to Mackin Industries and Robert Walker to see if their FR-S demo car can handle the job in 2015. A collaborative effort between Mackin, Evasive and GReddy, the FR-S (which was first debuted at the 2013 SEMA Show, used in time attack and has received plenty of media coverage throughout the world) was rebuilt by Evasive using all-new GReddy hardware to create a more durable and powerful engine (one that can stand up to the high altitude); they also added a new V-mount radiator setup and center exit exhaust, plus they upgraded the transmission, suspension and braking, all crucial elements needed to campaign a successful race car to take on Pikes Peak.
The Mackin FR-S is sporting an updated look as well; Evasive added aero enhancements to the existing Rocket Bunny body kit, including new air intake ducts and a front APR splitter/canards to the bumper. This is Scion’s fifth consecutive year at Pikes Peak and we can’t wait to see the car in action. We’ll have coverage coming shortly after the race!
