The new racing season !

Well a new racing season is just around the corner for Marcus! He is hoping to work with Hartech again for the 2013 season in the Porsche Club Championship. Details will follow once they have been confirmed but for now here’s a list of dates for you diary...

April 6th –Donington Park –with LIVE TV coverage
May 4th –Brands Hatch
June 1st/2nd –Donington Park
June 15th –Silverstone 
August 26th –Castle Combe
September 7th –Oulton Park
Sept 20th/ 21stSilverstone (Brit car 1000km event)
October 5th - Snetterton 200

Although the tracks are the same as used last year a few changes are set to be made in the championship. Firstly the weights of the cars have been revised, in the Boxster’s case the weight have been reduced which will keep the team busy getting the cars down to minimum weight. This should improve the Boxster’s performance, particularly against the 996’s whose weight has remained unchanged. In addition to the revised weights the Club’s contract with Michelin ended last year, and the control tyre brand has not been chosen yet, so if there is a change we’ll be engaged in testing and setting up the cars to maximise their potential on the new ones.

We’re also expecting to be able to bring frequent updates during test days & meetings via Twitter – follow us to keep track of things @gooseracing We haven’t tweeted anything yet, but we will be doing once the season gets underway.
