2012 BRSCC Logson Group Porsche, Meeting 1, Oulton Park
The winter break is over....the 2012 Logson Group Porsche Championship finally kicks into action this weekend (Saturday 31st March) at the challenging Oulton Park circuit in Cheshire! With a new Boxster class, some new faces throughout the grid, some established names looking to make their mark in 2012, and the absence of the 2011 Champion Dave Clark, this year's Championship promises to be the most hotly contested yet. Now in its third year as a multi-class series, it is well established on the national motorsport calendar and for the first time enjoys the support of the LOGSON GROUP as its title sponsor. LOGSON GROUP's MD Ian Loggie did a couple of guest drives in the Boxster class in 2011 and he liked it so much he bought the Championship! Welcome on board Ian, and we wish you every success in this year's events. In the 'Race Spec Boxster' class Richard Styrin looks on paper to be the driver to beat....but beware the newcomers! Richard Sykes has a brand new 987 model Boxster and if his results during guest appearances last year are anything to go by, we should expect the sparks to fly today. Former GT Cup class Champion Tom Andrew looks set to enter the Boxster Championship in style, and was putting in some impressive times at the open test session at Oulton two weeks ago......as was long term Porsche Championship protagonist Gerry Taylor, heading up the Taylors Foundry 'Boxster Boys' team. As one member of the TF team, Adam Croft will be racing the ex-Clark Boxster this year; some big shoes to fill for 2011's Porsche 924 runner up! Last year's 924 Champion Steve Brown, along with Steve Potts, are the first two drivers to build cars to meet the spec for the new 2012 'Production Boxster' class. The Productions are an unknown quantity and it will be interesting to see how they compare against the two established classes. The venerable Porsche 924's are out in force and still major players in the Championship, but which drivers are going to fill the shoes of Messers Brown, Croft and Piesinger this year? With the latter being transferred back to Austria, the Championship is wide open. Maybe we will see our first female champ in the form of Rebecca Jackson who made significant progress towards the end of 2011. But the smart money would be on Alastair Kirkham, Sean Siddall and possibly new-boy David Hornsey sharing the spoils at round one.....but unknowns in the shape of Karl Rossin and returnee Richard Jones might just be the spoilers in that equation! All the ingredients are in place for it to be another great season! Here's wishing all the competitors good luck and a safe passage through the LOGSON GROUP 2012 PORSCHE CHAMPIONSHIP.
Buying a Cheap Porsche Boxster / Vol. 1 What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
In this Video we profile an owner that just bought his 1999 Porsche Boxster for $7,000. This is the owners 5th Boxster and 9th Porsche he has owned. The Boxster's stats are close to that of the Subaru BRZ and Scion FRS, but it has more torque from it's flat 6 engine than the FRS/BRZ has from it's flat 4. Is the Boxster a bargain or a ticking time bomb?

Porsche Boxster Endurance Car - Pit Stop for a driver change and refuel at Texas World Speedway
We like to film our pit stops and review them later in case we see anything we might want to address and to help improve our times. Endurance racing is very much a team sport, and quite a lot more involved than some may realize. Even slight, seemingly insignificant improvements in different areas really add up over the course of a 16 - 24 hour race! Since we have a lot of these pit stop films anyway, we thought one of them might make for an interesting, "behind-the-scenes" video to show what it's like during a real race from a point-of-view other than the driver's seat. That's not to say that we're not still all about the GoPro footage from out there on the track, so don't worry, we're still going to post plenty more of that stuff, too! -Details- Race: World Racing League "The Last Checkered Flag" 16-Hour Enduro Track: Texas World Speedway - 2.9 mile road-course, counter-clockwise Date: May 30-31, 2015 Car: 2001 Spec Porsche Boxster, built by Fifth Gear Automotive in Lewisville, TX Thanks for watching and we hope you enjoy it.
