Adrenaline Road Rocket Preps for USA

The Barns

Cornwall TR8 4LP
3rd November 2006

The recently launched Adrenaline Motorsport's Murtaya has just completed a weekend of circuit testing and development at Brands Hatch international circuit in UK. Unlike most testing and development, this session was not conducted in secrecy so that any breakdowns remain hidden but took place in the glare of public attention. Now that takes confidence.

With its turbo-charged Subaru boxer engine barely run in with about 400 miles on the clock, the Murtaya ran hard and fast the whole weekend, putting race tuned Sevens firmly in their place and leaving track tuned Cobra replicas diminishing in its mirrors.

As part of its strategy to offer the Murtaya to worldwide markets Adrenaline has appointed an agent in the Netherlands and anticipates appointing further build agents in North America and China within the next few weeks. With a prominent US Indy team chief in Indianapolis eager to commence import and assembly of the Murtaya in his workshops the New Year should see Adrenaline's speedster available in the US in left hand drive and fully registered.

"We intend to show the Murtaya's paces in a number of tests of its form," promised Neil Yates, founder of Adrenaline Motorsports in Cornwall, England. "With 465bhp per tonne in its highest tuned form and all wheel drive we are curious just how rapidly we can tackle zero to 100 mph and back to zero! We are fairly sure the times will be phenomenal."
