Mid-Ohio and Porsche Club of America racing

Porsche Racing
My good friend Jeff has a contact with Midwestern Eurosports out of Chicago and invited my son and I up to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course this past weekend. We had excellent weather and a great time hanging around their 18-wheeler/shop and getting hints into some of the tweaks made to these already great performing cars.

Porsche racingThe Porsche designs are already excellent for the Mid-Ohio track, and the stock cars were pretty equal. Drivers made the difference in the stock class, while a little added horsepower gave a few high end 911s the edge. I was impressed with a couple heavily modified older Porsche 914s that did a sensational job keeping up with their big brothers … it was amazing to see a 2.0 liter modified mid engine 914 keeping up with cars pumping out over 400 horsepower. All in all, our weekend was enjoyable … I think my hearing is finally returning to normal. (adding a video clip when I get it encoded)

    Anyone have any experience (good or bad) with hard tops for cabs?
    I’m looking at ’08 Turbo or 911 4S and would appreciate info as no dealer in Southern Cal seems to have one (most say they haven’t seen one in years).
