CaymanSpec Racing is creating a new “spec” racing class intended to govern club-level competition among first generation Porsche Cayman and Cayman S sports cars. Guiding the development of this class are a focus on driver development and the creation of an environment where driver skill, equipment reliability, and consistency are rewarded through balanced competition and cost control.

Initial eligibility is limited to model year 2006, 2007, and 2008 Porsche 2.7 liter Cayman and 3.4 liter Cayman S USA specification cars that are properly modified for racing (per CaymanSpec regulations). Integration of other Porsche model 987 production cars may be considered if there is interest.

This is currently a grassroots effort, but it is the intent that as these regulations mature the CaymanSpec Racer - or CSR - class will be considered for adoption by multiple club racing organizations.

CaymanSpec Racing’s on-line presence is an integrated forum within the Planet Porsche environment and is available through both Cayman Spec Racing - Planet Porsche and www.caymanspec.com . We are excited to collaborate on this launch as a joint web presence provides Planet Porsche users easy access to a new racing format and provides CaymanSpec racers ready access to a wealth of Porsche related resources.

Please visit the Proposed CaymanSpec Racing Regulations discussion, download the current draft rule set and take the opportunity to provide your suggestions on how we can make CaymanSpec a success.

CaymanSpec Racing is an independent amateur effort not supported in any way by Porsche AG, PCNA, PMNA, PCA, or the POC.

Anyone know if there will be a schedule for the 2015 ITC season?

How well adopted is CaymanSpec vs BoxsterSpec? and are the race cars at all competitive with each other? I know the Spec Boxster is based on an older series of the Boxster line and therefore is likely at some power and technical disadvantages (not to mention the 3.4 liter for the S versions).

It is not yet well adopted, with just a few cars running CSR and a few more running CSX in SoCal. We probably started too soon and the donor were too expensive at the time. However, I think the primary issue was the Cayman Interseries started about the same time - with dealer built cars and more backing. Interseries is now gone and we are beginning to get more interest in bring back the formula so there is hope.

Another question is whether the GTB class in PCA or the weight/HP classes in the POC will overshadow CaymanSpec. It may serve the CSR class well to back off on the spec a bit to separate the cars from the nearly unlimited GT cars. We are giving that some thought as we take another run at building the class.
