After some time testing parts and upgrades, we've come to the decision that we will be running these pieces from Ricmotech to add to our G27.
We look forward to trying these parts on our G27. Thanks to Ricmotech for sponsoring our league xtrememotorsports99.com!

Wow! What an exciting night at Laguna Seca. We were leading the Open ST class but due to Mustangs in GS and a little hiccup in the last turn we dropped to p2. We will update points standings soon.
It was really a blast to go wheel-to-wheel with Mike Key and Mike Taylor. We are all battling for the Open ST title. We will pick up the bill on putting a trunk back on Mr. Key's Mx5 😂
Miika has been putting in some excellent attacks on the RDRC-PC championship in the WRC 2010's class. He is also working on various setups for our stable of cars in various classes. I am looking forward to working with the liveries for our 2010's, R4 and F2 kit cars.
Enjoy some of the footage from Miika. More updates to come on the RDRC, RallyCommunity leagues and possible prizes we have in mind for a future event. Also can't forget our monthly rallycross events we plan to host.
It was another tough field which saw mixed fortunes for our team effort. Congrats to Lluc on his performance today. Clearing 39 spots before the checkered flag waved. It was almost impossible to not get caught up in the mayhem for some of us at this tricky track. Watch the broadcast to see what we experienced!
As you may have seen lower down the blog, Darren is attacking the season in Int'l Formula Masters and most recently in a GT3 GT-R.
Thanks to Darren for making our team proud of his efforts in this virtual reality league. Scroll down and subscribe to the broadcast team featuring the first round at Paul Ricard.
Fritosport Racing team tackles 3 classes this season in the Race Department Rally Championship. We have Miika charging in the WRC class. Giannis is running in R4 and I am in the f2 kit car class.
Monte Carlo's 17 stages have proved to be challenging. However, Miika is definitely pushing as he sits on top for now. Updates coming soon!
On an overcast Sunday our team descended on Laguna Seca for a sure to be nail-biting debut for our new drivers in the first round of the THC with the Absolute Beginner's League.
Thanks to our amazing drivers for putting up a great fight in their first race.
Hugo - #72 had some contact and had to spend time in the pits for repairs. Hugo carries great pace in karts and is quick in the Skip Barber F2000 which we will be in next weekend.
Giannis - #80 is a very good driver under pressure and Giannis after some mechanical troubles was able to survive for a top 20 finish.
Lluc - #315 had great pace and racecraft here at Mazda Laguna Seca. He was able to score 5 points for our team with a P11 finish.
Ed (Frito) - #57 while things were looking good in battle, I lost the rear tires and had small contact with the wall. After being repaired I continued to attempt to survive. We were in P13 when an off-track turned into a smack in the steering rack again thus making return to pit difficult. I was DQ'd on the last lap with 3 turns to go. Broken steering....
On to the next rounds and tonight we race at Sebring in the MX5 with xtrememotorsports99.com on the Apex Racing TV channel.
Round 1 of the EXM GT3 series saw our driver, Darren Boulton challenge the field in a challenging race around the tough Paul Ricard circuit. Starting from P9, Boulton managed to lead at times in the event only to have tire temps/wear affect the GT-R dropping the team to P4 in the end. Overall we are very proud and happy with Darren and his attack n this excellent Assetto Corsa league.
Thanks to EXM and the broadcast!
We've had some time off due to weather so we took a look at tradingpaints.com once again. I'll be the first to admit my painting livery skills are very limited. However I had fun working on some of these cars for our team. We hope to provide the team with DiRT Rally livery next. For now take a look at these :)
Daytona Road Course saw the likes of MX5's and Mustangs take the field with quite a large grid. The Pro and Open division drivers had the tough task to run a 90 minute race. Just one week before the Rolex 24hrs of Daytona, these drivers will be putting in serious laps so this serves as a good test for that event as well.
We went into the Open MX5 division today looking to run with our usual competitors Dan Krueger and Mike Key. There were new drivers on the grid as well. Some old and new, but after a safety period which threw off strategy, we found ourselves running on our own with nobody to draft. In the end, we came away with P8 in class after running out of fuel a few feet after the bus stop chicane. We had enough of a gap to coast and not lose places.
In the end, we ended up P8 in the Street Tuner class, P3 in the OPEN MX5 Division!!!!

Thanks to Apex Racing TV for the broadcast, Xtrememotorsport99 league and the drivers for the extra clean racing!
The 1st round of the Absolute Beginner's League Formula Neagle took place with a massive 62 car grid. Check out the broadcast and thanks to our team and drivers for putting their best effort forward in what felt like draft-racing in a traffic jam!
Throughout our practice sessions Kevin and Giannis set the pace pretty well for our team. Ed FRITO Sanchinelli was able to stay away from the carnage to finish the race in P16 out of the 62 car grid. Unfortunately things didn't work out and we were not able to work on our racecraft and drafting practice during this event.
Next weekend we are looking forward to running the Mazda MX5's in the Tony Hayes Cup.
our new 320mm wheel has been attached and we will be able to participate in the 1st Formula Neagle race and Monday's Ricmotech sports car series as well.
Big thanks to 3drap.it for the hub, parts and support!
Giannis Christodoulou was out representing Fritosport Racing TEAM today at Watkins Glen classic. Giannis was out running our new Skip Barber Formula 2000 car through its paces in practice to further develop our tire strategy and suspension setup for the first round of the Formula Neagle trophy.
Good luck to Kevin, Giannis and Ed Sanchinelli this sunday as they'll tackle a 60+ car grid at the place where "the draft" matters!

It was a foggy race with very little visibility on track. Somehow we managed to grab P1 in qualifying. I wonder if the other driver's were carrying a lot more weight?! hehe
Either way we were excited to be starting on pole position but at the same time nervous.
Some of the ABL League guys were there battling for the first race of 2017. I ran wide on lap 1 losing two spots.
After that initial mistake we were caught up in situations where we got boxed out and hung out left to dry. In the end we came away with P8 after running low on fuel. A splash n dash helped us get back out but sadly lower than where we wanted to be.
FRITO on steam
