Mitsubishi Ralliart dies

Mitsubishi Ralliart arm dies as the company's motorsport activity goes. Is Evo X safe?

Mitsubishi’s Ralliart motorsport arm is no more.  It’s headline news due to Ralliart’s involvement in a plethora of Mitsubishi performance cars.

The lack of racing activity has drawn a sensible line under the company’s Ralliart arm. Development of performance metal, such as the current Mitsubishi Evo X, has been in-house with Mitsubishi for a while, so we’ve been promised no noticeable change as a result of Ralliart’s announcement.
