This past weekend Berk Technology campaigned their 135i project and their S2000 project at the Redline Time Attack season opener at Buttonwillow Raceway. Putting their products to the test on a rigorous weekend of track racing, the Berk Technology 135i piloted by Jeff Tyler, placed sixth (2:03.612) in the highly competitive RWD Street Class against 62 other more heavily modified sports cars. The BMW features a full Berk Techology downpipe back exhaust system, Code3 Performance Intercooler & oil cooler, Burger Tuning JB3. Handling mods are kept to a minimum with KW Variant 3 coilovers, HP Autowerks LSD, and D-Force EmPower wheels.
The S2000, driven by Charles Ng, had great success as well, placing third place in the same class (2:01.044) with extremely limited modifications proving the Berk Technology header, high flow cat and exhaust fully help maximize horsepower potential from the F22C. Aero Mods on the S2000 are limited to an APR GTC-300 wing and front splitter. Suspension mods are kept to a bare minimum of KW Variant 3 coilovers and FXMD springs. Berk Technology would like to thank all their sponsors for their continued support: KW Suspensions, Burger Motorsports, V-Fiber, Vivid Racing, Code Three Performance, HP Autowerks, D-Force Wheels, Toyo Tires, FXMD, Gruppe-S Engineering, and APR Performance. We look forward to the next event and placing even better on the podium!
Representing Berk Technology products was also Mike Bonanni & Double Down Motorsports' "showroom stock" 370Z and Jack "The Human Datalogger" Huang's S2000 which placed fourth place running a Berk Technology high flow cat.
