Live Twitter Updates This Weekend!

May 28, 2010

This weekend is a big one for the Berk Technology Time Attack Race Team!  It is Round #4 of the 2010 Redline Time Attack series and it will be held at our home track, Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA!

Last time Berk Technology ran this track it was for the 2009 Redline Time Attack Finals in November of last year.  At that event, we ran a 1:54.909 which still stands as our best time at that track, however that was only good for 5th place.  1st place, and the current Street Tire RWD record was set by Jeremy Croiset in the Berk Technology/MCS Toyota MR2 at a 1:50.692.

This year, heading into the event, we know we have a much more capable car, but will it be good enough to break the track record, despite the weather being 20+ degrees hotter than it was back in November?  Will we get our third straight podium finish this weekend?  Will we take the championship points lead this event?  How will we do in our Super Session debut?

This weekend is sure to be full of drama and excitement, and you don’t want to miss it!  Get the inside scoop on whats going on with the Berk Technology Time Attack Race Team by following us on Twitter all weekend long!  We will be updating our Twitter account from the track all day Saturday and Sunday so join in to see if we can win the event, take the points lead, and set a new track record!

Berk Technology Invades Bimmerfest 2010

May 25, 2010

The annual Bimmerfest car meet is widely known as the largest gathering of BMWs in the USA.  Normally held in Santa Barbara, Calfornia the event switched venues for 2010 to the famous Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California.  True to form, the Bimmerfest event drew over 2000 BMWs and thousands of spectators driving in from as far away as Alaska and Florida.

Not one to miss a party, the Berk Technology Time Attack BMW 135i was on display amongst the sea of Bavarian beauties.  The car was on display in the European Auto Source (EAS) booth which featured a number of crowd pleasing BMW street cars, show cars, and race cars.  Spectators and fans of the Berk Technology Time Attack race team got a chance to see our race car live in the flesh and also got to get a sneak peak of some new additions that have gone on the car in preparation for Round #4 of the 2010 Redline Time Attack series coming up in less than a week out at Auto Club Speedway.  New additions included a custom carbon fiber rear diffuser and some low-drag Formula GT3 mirrors, both from APR Performance.  New custom built KW Suspension Clubsport coilovers were also on the car hidden behind our APEX ARC-8 wheels and Hankook RS-3 tires.

“The EAS booth is always one of the most anticipated and larger booths at each Bimmerfest and we are truly proud to have had the opportunity to be a part of it by displaying our 135i time attack car alongside some of the best BMWs at the show!” – Bryan M, President, Berk Technology

We at Berk Technology were truly overwhelmed with how many fans our time attack car and team have gained this year within the BMW community.  Our early successes in time attack competition and the release of our BMW 135i exhaust systems has gained us tremendous support from our fellow BMW owners and enthusiasts.  Berk Technology is planning on pushing into the BMW market even harder this year with the release of our new BMW 335i exhaust system, which is currently in the development and testing phase!  With the addition of the 335i exhaust system, paired with our already popular 135i exhaust systems and our time attack race team, we plan on quickly becoming one of the most sought after brands in the BMW market!

Berk Technology would like to thank European Auto Source and Macht Schnell for inviting us to display our car in their booth.  We would also like to thank our time attack race team sponsors for making our car what it is, and of course to all of our fans and customers who make this all worth while for us.

New Product: Mitsubishi Evo 8/9 High Flow Cat!

May 10, 2010

It’s no secret that the Mitsubishi Evolution is one of the top tuner platforms of all time, and it’s also no secret that Berk Technology is one of the top high flow catalytic converter manufacturers in the tuner market today, which is why we are proud to announce our new 3” high flow catalytic converter for the Mitsubishi Evolution 8/9!  The new Berk Technology Evo 8/9 High Flow Cat uses the same high flow metallic racing catalytic converters that have been so successful in our Nissan/Infiniti/Honda applications and possesses the same high quality 100% stainless steel craftsmanship that Berk Technology is known for.

High flow catalytic converters are the perfect solution for anyone looking to free up some extra power, but don’t want the dreaded “test pipe smell,” and also the perfect solution for owners who are building a car to race in a series that requires the use of catalytic converters.  Berk Technology high flow catalytic converters have been proven to flow 87% as well as test pipes leaving you with plenty of power and no obnoxious smell.

The new Mitsubishi Evolution 8/9 high flow catalytic converter will fit on both the 2004-2005 Mitsubishi Evolution VIII (8), and 2006-2007 Mitsubishi Evolution IX (9).  This Berk Technology catalytic converter is designed to be a direct bolt on replacement of the stock catalytic converter and is OBDII and 49 state SMOG compliant.

These new high flow cats are available for order right now though Berk Technology or your favorite Berk Technology authorized dealer!

MSRP: $249.99
