Change of Porsche Service Specialist - FRS

When considering my competition plans for 2014, I came to the conclusion that I had I had to do something different to either me, the car or both in order to achieve better results. One way to achieve both aims was to move the preparation of the GT3 to a service organisation that not only provides track side car support but assisted in driver training and physical & mental preparation as well.

One such organisation in Melbourne is Fitzgerald Racing Services in suburban Box Hill. The founder & principal, Peter Fitzgerald is a former professional Porsche sports car champion and current PCV member.

He supports a 'stable' of 12 or 15 drivers regularly competing at club events who all seem to be improving and enjoying their club-level motor sport. Why not try my luck with 'Club Fitzy'.

So today my GT3 goes in for an annual service, safety check, a Phillip Island suspension setup and new Yokohama 'R' spec tyres. I am looking forward to my first event a Phillip Island in early February!

I will keep you informed of my progress.
