After experiencing the Motorsport Raceway Track at Evbuobanosa, Edo state as a dirt track for most of 2017, we announced that the track would be tarred before the Biker’s Trophy in November 2017 and a car racing championship called RoadX for 2018 season will be premiered on the same day. We sell BMWs, parts and accessories, so what better way to live the hype of the best car brand in the world other than partaking in a racing series involving them?
The cars for the Road X series would be Benz 190s and BMW E30s and must be built to safe racing standards. The engines allowed in this class would be the 4 cylinder engines naturally available in the E30 and 190 chassis only (except the M3 and cosworth variants). No forced induction (turbo and supercharging) or individual throttle bodies allowed. Engine must be kept stock (as is from factory). This means it would be highly affordable to run your car in the series. Contact us if you would like to join at any time.
The clock started ticking, teams registered over the months and began building their race cars in order to showcase them at the Team and Cars unveil event held at Muri Okunola Park, Victoria Island on September 25, 2017. Most of the teams are based in cities outside Edo state and move their race cars, bikes, equipment and personnel from Lagos, Abuja, Owerri, Port Harcourt to Edo state for the race days – talk about passion!
