Nice - he seemed to run it actually as a business and it seemed a lot more 'professional' with him at the helm. I recall seeing that trip he did over to Japan some years back and reading about it.It began with Darin, who founded the Lancer Turbo Register, which catered for the Lancer 2000 Turbo long before the Evo's were on the scene. He ran it for years and years through its boom and bust, then eventually sold it a couple of years back to VS as @R3k1355 said.
I’ve known Darin since about ‘99 and he put a lot of his life into the LTR/MLR and fair play to him for getting something back and selling up. He always had an old Lancer 2000 Turbo, I’m not sure if he still has it. IIRC he once let Stig Blomqvist pedal it around Combe years back.
The magazine was great in the day - used to look forward to that being delivered.
