Performance parts distributors Turn 14 Distribution has again partnered with Evasive Motorsports for the 98th running of The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) presented by Gran Turismo on Aug. 30, the company announced. The Evasive Motorsports x Turn 14 Distribution 2013 Toyota 86 is being piloted by Turn 14 Distribution-sponsored athlete and 2011 Formula Drift Champion, Dai Yoshihara, marking Dai’s second time competing in the race, after his rookie attempt in 2019.
“Turn 14 Distribution is pleased to extend its five-year partnership with Evasive Motorsports and our Formula Drift driver Dai Yoshihara as they make another attempt at conquering the infamous Pikes Peak Hill Climb this weekend,” said Daryl Sampson, Turn 14 Distribution’s Director of Marketing.
A Toyota 2JZ engine powers the 2013 Toyota 86 with a 3.4-liter stroker kit outfitted with a new Garrett G42-1200 turbocharger, producing approximately 700 hp at 20 psi of boost. Utilizing this new turbocharger removes air restriction and alleviates the overheating issues that Dai experienced during 2019’s race. Further upgrades over last year’s spec include Titan7 T-S5 forged two-piece prototype wheels in a nonstaggered setup, Toyo Tires Pikes Peak special compound slicks, a new Artisan Spirits Japan Aero Wide Body Kit and EVS Tuning in-house 3D-printed air ducts for increased airflow to keep engine bay temperatures down.
