Walkinshaw does a deal with Mitsubishi
The new Tom Walkinshaw Group Limited has signed a deal with the Colt Car Company to supply Mitsubishi competition cars, components and accessories from its Milton Keynes technical facility. TWG Motorsport will offer unique high-performance components, including engine, gearbox and suspension, and EVO IX cars across a variety of specifications, from standard through to bespoke builds, tailored to individual driver's specific requirements. Mitsubishi competitors will also have the benefit of a full TWG trackside technical support service at races, tests and track days.
The Colt Car Company is the exclusive importer and distributor of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK. It has 114 dealerships around the country but at the moment is only involved in national rallying and off-road competitions and it will be interesting to see what plans are announced later today in Birmingham.
Mitsubishi recently axed its World Rally Championship programme as part of its plan to restructure after its less-than-successful relationship with DaimlerChrysler.
