2012 Caterham Tracksport - Round 6 - Snetterton 200 - Race 2
Round 6 of the Caterham Tracksport Championship was held on the Snetterton 200 circuit. Snetterton always produces fast, close racing due to it having 2 long straights with not many twisty bits between them. This race is another example of why I enjoy Caterham racing so much, it's fast, close and very competitive. Congratulations to Jim and Terry for 2nd and 3rd in this race. Enjoy!
Porsche 934.5 Spa Classic 2011
Our Porsche 934.5 at the 2011 Spa Classic race. It had rained prior to the race and we made the decision to start on slicks while everyone else stuck with rain tires apart from one RSR (he won). Our strategy would have worked as the track dried up very quickly and every team had to pit for slicks. Our first driver got aggressive too early, no excuse as we were so much faster. He touched the curb on the inside which is like ice when wet, and that was that. The damage is minimal, and we hope to have it back on the track within 1-2 months.
2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S, first presentation
2014 Porsche 911 turbo S, first presentation. World presentation in Moscow.03.05.13.
Porsche has revealed today the 911 turbo and turbo S, ahead of a public debut scheduled for September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Following several reports and batches of spy shots, the latest 911 turbo lineup has arrived. turbo and turbo S make use of a six-cylinder, 3.8-liter direct-injection turbocharged engine delivering 520 HP (383 kW) in the 911 turbo and 560 HP (412 kW) in the 911 turbo S variant. Power is transferred to all four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK with auto stop/start function which has slashed off fuel consumption by 16 percent to 9.7 liters / 100 km (24.2 mpg US or 29.1 mpg UK).
The 911 turbo equipped with Sport Chrono Package will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds, while the turbo S is 0.1s quicker. Both of them are capable of reaching a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h).
Length has increased by 40mm to 4490mm, while width is also up by 28mm compared to Carrera 4 models to 1878mm. Porsche has also stretched the wheelbase by 100mm to 2450mm, while the front and rear tracks are also longer than before. Both models ride on 20-inch alloy wheels but only the S version has hub wheel locks. The turbo S also gains full LED headlights with four-point daytime running lights and camera-based main beam control (optionally available for turbo).
Just like the 911 GT3, the turbo variants have four-wheel steering which help the cars lap Nürburgring in less than 7 minutes 30 seconds with standard production tires fitted. Both of them have a retractable three-stage rear spoiler and a deployable rear wing with three adjustable wing positions.
Scheduled to reach the market in September, the 2014 Porsche 911 turbo has a starting price in Germany of 162,055 EUR while the 911 turbo S begins at 195,256 EUR. VAT and country-specific taxes included.
