Hyde's Racing History

 

The intent of this MR2 project has always been to build a total performance vehicle that was street legal. Many racers build a car dedicated to one purpose (be it drag race, autocross, road race, hill climb, etc). We wanted to build a street legal car that could do it all, and do it all well. With the help of the entire MR2 community (www.MR2OC.com) & the vendors that support our community, we have achieved that goal

We felt like we achieved that goal in 2004 ... when we took second place at a large regional drag race (Summer Slam) and an SCCA Hillcimb within 7 days of each other. The only change on the car for those events was rims & tires. Luckily we were able to stay in some cheap hotels for the event. See our final round performance at Summer Slam in this clip from ESPN2 here: ESPN2 Video

We bettered ourselves in 2005 ... with back-to-back wins in a large regional drag race (Survival of the Imports) and another SCCA hill climb. Again, these events happened within 7 days of each other and the only change was tires.

2006, beyond a doubt, proved that our goal was achieved - total performance in a street car:

Drag Race: 10-second 1/4-mile @ 130 mph

Autocross: Won the NEPA SCCA SM2 Championship

Hill climb: Won the PHA SCCA SM2 Championship and set 4 new class records!
