What our customers achieved last year (2012) is just AMAZING. We don’t and can’t control what customers we have, and we are thrilled to have them all. But, at the same time, not all customers are set up to be fast drivers. Our role is to coach them, guide them, and most likely, to provide a great car to use for any type of competitive event. What we want more than anything is that we have provided them the right enhancements at the right time, so that they can get the most of their car when they do go out and fling it around tracks.
The results in 2012 were truly stunning – class championship in the POC club series (Jesse M – Porsche 2011 Cup Car), lap records and class records in the PCA group at multiple tracks, Tribute to Le Mans Enduro winner (Fontana).
Here is a list of the events so far in 2013, and the customers and their results. And, just to put some of the results in context, in the POC events, a racer can enter both the Time Trial as well as the Race, so often, the top places in the Time Trial are from the full race cars. As an example, in the Spring Mountain Time Trial in 2012, 28 of the cars were full race cars, yet our customers street cars were right in the top group.
