Chin Track Days at Watkins Glen_4493

We left Charlotte Saturday afternoon with a sunny 90+ degree day and entered the town of Watkins Glen, NY wrapped up in hoodies and sweatshirts. Despite the unexpected temperature shift, our customers at this Chin Track Day were ready to hit the track! The first day was ideal weather for tracking and let the 2 Porsche GT4s, Porsche Cayman R, and Audi TT-RS we had in tow get a good feel of The Glen and its many twists and turns. Day two proved to be a lot damper of an affair, with sudden bursts o... (more)

 
Smokies GT3 and Heavens Landing_4435

This event would be a glorious day with either rain or shine, but the weather was as excited for this track day as we were and brought nothing but sunshine. Splitting time between Atlanta Motorsports Park and Heaven's Landing, there's was a little something for everyone in attendance. The Porsches didn't pile in only for fun but also for a good cause, raising over $160,000 for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!

Porsche Club of Fall HPDE VIRNovember 17th19th_4144

Standing outside in the middle of November doesn't sound like a fantastic way to spend a weekend for most but add cars and we're there! At the season closer for the Porsche Club of America, we loaded up the hauler and headed up to VIR to provide support for some pretty cool Porsches (plus a BMW and Audi that tagged along). The weather was ideal for a fall weekend, sunny and mild, letting us focus on keeping our customers going fast.
