I got this in an email from a local Sports Car Club of America coordinator:

"Mitsubishi is voiding motor and drive train warranties including
transmission for any cars that participate in an Sports Car of
America (SCCA) event or any other timed event.

It seems that Mitsubishi has set up an automatic web search that
looks for registration and results information for any Mitsubishi.
They then capture the race results information, match it to vehicle
purchase and service records and proactively put the car on "warranty
restriction". Those of you with new cars, may want to not list the
actual car make or use a screen name.

I bought this car for my son about 2 months ago. The voiding of the
motor and drive train warranty is especially puzzling to me as I was
completely open with the dealer that sold the car to me, that I was
going to allow my son to participate in SCCA events -- even invited
the sales person and his manager to come for a ride along. Was the
dealer's response to tell me that this would void the warranty on the
new car? Nope. His response was "...what a cool way to keep your son
from getting in trouble on the streets."

Sure would have appreciated knowing that parking lots and cones would void the warranty on the Evo. I guess although the car is "race
inspired", Mitsubishi considers chasing cones at 25 to 60 mph in
parking lot to be too much for their "embodying everything a
performance enthusiast looks for in a car" model."
