911 Martini Racing SC

 

So the time came to say good bye to our faithful SC, but not before one more outing at the Anglesey Circuit. A reminder of how well the car handled around the legendary tight curves of the rocket and the corkscrew. A great way to say goodbye with memories of a good all round machine! 

Our car was purchased blind from the USA on Ebay for a snatch! We figured that if it wasn't great when it arrived we'd break it for parts as a last resort. It had a reasonable spec of race equipment and a recently rebuilt engine and Gearbox, so we decided it was worth a punt!

 

 

Originally a Colorado car it had raced reasonably well in the PCA (Porsche Club America) endurance series.  

 

Although it was a bit tatty it came full of spares and the original stripped out parts. We were pretty happy as most of all 

it was extremely straight and rust free.

The history file with the car was really comprehensive with 10 years worth of receipts for the modifications and equipment. 

 

We checked it over and apart from the odd fault most of the work was cosmetic and regulatory to compy with MSA regs.

Because of the base silver paint it was an obvious choice to change the look of the car to the Martini Racing livery. The front bumper was also replaced. Rial alloys together with a set of BBS mahle rims were used to replace the existing wheels.

 

By the close of the 2016  season we'd picked up a fair bit of knowledge which helped us realise our car was heavy, slow, didnt stop and wasn't set up at all well. We therefore implented a plan to improve and upgrade the car in virtually all areas to make it more competitive for the 2017 season. Have a look at the 'Blog' page to see more detailed pictures of the car as work in the closed season progesses.
