We’ve had a very busy spring and summer, running SCCA races, PCA races, and Global MX-5 Cup events across the US and Canada.
In SCCA, we just returned from the Cat Majors at Road America, where Topher put his Spec Boxster on pole and won the T3 class – his first majors victory. Tray Ayres set the fastest time in SRF3 qualifying but unfortunately had a mechanical issue which ended his race early. Coaching Client Breton Williams finished 2nd in his Prather EP car. At Blackhawk Farms, Jeff Vanbendegom won his first ever SM race after qualifying on pole.
In PCA, we raced at Watkins Glen, with great results by Topher, Todd, and Hunt (pole and a win) in Spec Boxster. Road Atlanta was in April, with Todd and Topher both on the podium in SPB.
In Global MX-5 Cup, we struggled with some ECU issues the first half of the season, but once those were sorted out Todd was able to lead at Road America and finish second. At the Streets of Toronto race Todd led race one, but got caught up in someone else’s error and wound up in the wall with a few fractured ribs, ending his run for the championship.
We’ve finally recovered from a fun filled weekend at the Porsche Club Race at Sebring. Our two new Spec Boxster builds were completed in record time. Topher Everett piloted his red #29 to a victory in the fun race – his first PCA race weekend in his new car with an awesome graphics scheme a la Porsche. We copied his livery for our black #84 shop car, with Todd Lamb taking the win in the enduro in our other new build. PCA puts on very fun, laid back events, catered to the customers (drivers). Race with us or stop by our paddock at the upcoming Road Atlanta PCA race April 1-2.

We’ve just received a Porsche donor car for a Spec Boxster build. This car will be built to PCA Club Racing rules, which restrict the modifications to the car much like Spec Miata. We will strip the car, cage it, install new suspension components and lots of extra coolers, and then it will be campaigned in the SPB (Spec Boxster) class at PCA/NASA events. It will also be able to run in SCCA and PBOC, so we expect plenty of track time for the car. The fields are upwards of 30 cars at some events. Cost will be around $45k for a full build. We plan to build 3 of these over the winter, so if you’re interested get your order in ASAP.
