Boxster at Sebring

Recommended Posts

Last Saturday, Jan 3rd, my PCA region did a DE event at Sebring. It was a blast! I couldn't believe how much fun it was. I couldn't believe I was driving on the track I've seen so many times on television but have never been to in person.

My Boxster's suspension is the standard sport suspension and I have the 17" wheels and tires. I'm still sorting through my engine mods so my car is a few tenths slower than stock in the quarter mile but that didn't hold me back at the track. I passed pretty much everyone in green group and I made it into blue before lunchtime. My instructors liked my smoothness and speed.

In fact I've already exceeded the stock brakes even though I have EBC red pads, ATE Super Blue and stainless braided brake lines. I'm going to have to get 18" wheels and upgrade to something larger in the front, maybe Brembo F50. I'll replace the rear discs with cross drilled and the pads with Pagid race pads. My stock front rotors are purple from that day and they had extreme fade going into the hairpin at the end of turn 6 (that long sweeper).

Besides the brakes, the rest of the car held up extremely well. After I washed it off and peeled off the numbers, you couldn't even tell the car visited the track, no squeaks or rattles even though I pushed the car beyond its traction and braking ability a few times. Oh yeah, I also like turn 17 at Sebring, it's almost horse shoe shaped and if you hit the line right with enough speed you steer with the throttle, its a blast.
