The parts and services we offer are the result of over fifty years involvement with Porsche 356s as well as racing them at the highest levels for which they are eligible. The lessons have been expensive and sometimes mentally painful, but I have learned a lot and continue learning more each year. Being actively involved in racing a 356, I have the opportunity to learn the latest “go-fast” and “handle-better” tricks. Continued racing also helps me learn about reliability; it never ceases to amaze me that after all these years of racing, every year some different part will find a new way to fail. The only thing to do is to redesign, reinvent, reinforce, or all of the above.

Starting your 356 racing career?

No one promised that vintage racing would be cheap, but racing a 356 is about half of racing a 911 and we beat them most of the time.  Racing is a big commitment, you need to consider time, resources and how much you are willing to do yourself.  That can include a truck and trailer = towing time or hiring someone to service and transport your car.  If you aren’t ready to make this commitment maybe you should just buy a Miata.  But you will make the best friends of your life, and make memories that will last forever.  See you at the race track.
