Whilst 2020 has been challenging for all car enthusiasts here in Sri Lanka, a need for a meet-up presented itself when conditions improved and regulations relaxed in September 2020, and with the support of a few good friends we were able to pull this off. We made sure to open it to a handful of selected

A few years ago i remember seeing the ever so famous super car meet which was held at the nawam mawatha car park… and i thought wow thats just brilliant. The selection of car that were present that day was insane! Since then i remember hearing a few friends of mine mentioning “back in that day… there was this super car meet where the best of Sri Lanka’s performance cars met”.
From then on the question that i kept asking my self was why hasnt it been happening… I never got the answer to that question until we celebrated our 1 year anniversary of pistontorque last year. Thats when i saw the true potential of our community! Everyone enjoyed last year and that was what made me come up with this meet up, which will from now on been an annual meet up!
Our 2nd Year meet up took place on the 3rd of February @3pm and below is what went down.

There have being times when we all have see some old wild wild west gunfight action on television. Well its a bit rare now but as kids it was one of the things that we enjoyed (until our parents stopped us from watching it for the violence). But hey even Looney Tunes got it! LOL
I know we all do miss the old days when we were just kids! but gunfights or gunfighters if you were to call it were conflicts between Good vs Bad, Villains vs Heroes or Lawman vs. Gunslinger.
In this case it wasn’t about firearms or physically harming someone… but it was about a battle that was 1st set up in 1992 when Mitsubishi created the 1st generation Lancer Evolution and Subaru created the 1st generation Impreza WRX. The battle between these 2 started on the tracks in Japan and made its way into WRC.
Along with the WRC bug various motoring media groups started comparing them and reviewing them together which lead to a die hard fan base of these 2 cars respectively.
If your wondering whats the real buzz about these 2 cars are… its quite simple, they both have 2L 4 cylinder turbo engines and are All-Wheel Drive. From their inception in 1992 to this very day, that has being their formula!
A few days ago i was going through the thought of how the modern (not the latest) model of the Evo and STi would look together on the street or anywhere for that matter. Soon that thought became a quest…. a quest to find 2 of the best examples in Sri Lanka.
So today from the Subaru camp we have the Impreza WRX STi Ver IX (9) Spec C Type RA and from the Mitsubishi camp we have the Lancer Evolution IX (9) GT spec.
