Randy Pobst "Marvels" at the TPC Racing GT4

Jun 21, 2016 - 1:21 PM - by TPC Racing
On May 17th, TPC Racing had the pleasure of hosting acclaimed driver Randy Pobst of Motortrend; independent journalist Matt Farah of The Smoking Tire; and automotive editor of Ars Technica, Jonathan Gitlin, at Summit Point Motorsport Park for a private track day.

Before dawn, the TPC Racing crew loaded up a fleet of DSC Sport-equipped cars; including a Porsche Cayman GT4, Dodge Viper TA, and a Corvette C7 Z06; and shipped out to Summit Point. By the time the crew had pulled into the paddock, the rain was falling and puddles were accumulating on the track. It was looking like the day was going to be a total bust.

As we hopefully waited out the weather, Pobst and TPC Racing owner Mike Levitas shared stories of their racing days together in Grand-Am. After that, Mike gave tutorials on how to tune an active chassis using the DSC Sport tuning software. Finally, at about 1pm the sky began to clear up. By 1:30pm, the track was hot... [Read More]

The new Porsche 718 Cayman

The fourth, redeveloped generation of the mid-engine sport coupé is extending the new model series just a few weeks after the debut of the new 718 Boxster.

The same new four-cylinder flat engines with turbocharging as in the 718 Boxster are being deployed in the 718 Cayman. As a result, coupé and roadster have an identical engine output for the first time. The entry-level... [Read More]

981 Drivers Gear Bag Special!

Mar 19, 2016 - 10:32 AM - by K-Man S
981 Inspired Limited Edition - Really Unique Driving Gear!

Limited production of only 9 exclusive bags hand made in Italy. Configurable for 981 owners. Exclusive to Planet 9.

What a great way to welcome our latest Planet-9 sponsor: The Driver’s Gear Box, an online store offering unique gear and accessories for sports car drivers. But before we get to this offer, let me share the back-story.

The story started in 2014 when Eric D’Amours from Toronto first test drove a 981 Cayman S. Eric had a number of powerful cars before but this test drive let him discover what “true” sports car driving is all about. Not long after getting his first “true” sports car, he realized that beyond the driving experience, the reality of sports car design was also about space management. Finding distinctive driving gear that worked with limited footwells and trunks became his quest.

Say hello to the manual, 500-hp Porsche 911 R

Feb 29, 2016 - 3:50 AM - by RSS_feed_bot
Each model interprets the high art of lateral dynamics in its own way: the 911 R as a purist driving machine with a 368 kW (500 hp, 13.3 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: 308 g/km) naturally aspirated engine in the rear, the Roadster with advanced chassis and turbocharged four-cylinder mid-mounted engine. The 718 Boxster develops 220 kW (300 hp, 7.4 – 6.9 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: 168 - 158 g/km) of power from two litres of engine displacement, while the 718 Boxster S attains 257 kW (350 hp, 8.1 – 7.3 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: 184 - 167 g/km) from 2.5 litres of displacement.
By presenting the 911 R, Porsche is staging an almost traditional opening to the European automobile year with an exceptional sports car. In previous years, the 911 GT3, 918... [Read More]
