This is terrific news! I wish Mike Levitas and everyone at TPC/BGB much success! There's nothing like racing to expedite a car's development. Cayman owners also stand to benefit from the increased "heritage" that racing success can bring to the model. Bon Chance!:cheers:

Casey: Are these turbos? The list of mods only mentions TPC suspension/handling mods? Either way...very cool. Congrats!

Very glad the cat is finally out of the bag.

As a side note, Craig Stanton piloted FrankinCayman(david)'s TPC Turbo Cayman S in the EuroTuner Grand Prix in October. To keep things interesting, they didn't share the results from the street test so I guess we'll all have to wait and see how we did compared to the 800+hp audi race car, and the two supercharged 500+hp V8 M3s = )

I believe these two cars will be fairly stock in terms of engine output and will not be rocking turbos. I saw first hand what [email protected] can do with a welder, plasma cutter, and some over-stiff H/R sway bars... in an hour... I can only imagine what sorts of craziness they cooked up for these two badboys.

Will be subscribing to SPEED CHANNEL this year just to watch the races. Good luck TPC/BGB!!!

EDIT: no love for the west coast states : ( maybe fly out for one of these races if I can sneak in = p
