Default Leh Keen to drive TopSpeed's GT2 in OneLap of America

Everyone here at TopSpeed is very excited to announce the entry of our 996 GT2 in this yearís OneLap of America. The carwill be driven by Leh Keen along with co-driver Douglas Wilks, founder of TopSpeed.

Our launch into the Porsche community in the last year has been a very fun and exciting addition to TopSpeed. We have spent hundreds of hours dissecting the factory DME in order to create flawless recalibrations for any Porsche application. We also have spent countless days at the track performing R&D on different suspension setups, tires, power and aero configurations to ensure our customers are getting the very best!

That being said, Team TopSpeed decided the perfect venue to put our innovation and quality to the test was OneLap of America! Between the multiple styles of racing involved in this particular race and the 3400 mile road trip that the car must endure in order to be victorious, there isnít a race more fitting to prove that TopSpeed has what it takes to build a street driven race car.

We have spent the last several months designing, fabricating and testing several custom pieces for the GT2 that will be implemented during this event. Doug took the lead on most of our fabrication and tuning, while our lead technician Adam Murawski was the point man on the suspension and setup. We brought Adam in from the FarnbacherLoles race team after their championship winning Ď09 season with the #87 Porsche. He has been a great addition to the team with lots of knowledge in every aspect of the Porsche chassis.

We are confident that with our quest for excellence in everything we do, coupled with Leh as a wheel, we will be very competitive. Keep an eye on this thread for the latest as the race goes on. Leh and Doug will be updating with pictures, news and Iím sure some complete randomness as they drive around the country!

Here are a few pictures of the car and our GT2 OLA build.

Nothing like some last minute additions to the build. Here are a few more pictures of the two day countdown.

Enjoy

Just about to load the car on the trailer to make the trip to TireRack tomorrow. Figured I would share some pictures of the race ready product.

This is most definitely the cleanest she is going to be for a couple weeks

Hey Cicio,

I wish you guys the best of luck. I know with the caliber of work you do, this should certainly be a successful campaign.
Just wanted to thank you again for getting that oil leak on my dad's s2k taken care of.

Best wishes,

Chris Young

I don't mean to keep blowing this thread up, but i'm excited

Here is the update from Leh...

Off to a medium start.. We finished 8th in the skid pad today… top 10 is good.. esp for a car with a setup like ours… the 2 HOTROD Vettes with Onelap veterans in them finished 15th and 29th…. the only prob is the 2 GTRs finished 1 and 2…. Damn those GTRs.. they have no weakness…

I forgot how tough this event is.. we drove from Southbend straight into rush hour traffic in Chicago.. and then into a Tornado Warning storm right above… So the first day has already been semi eventfull….

Tom it really starts with Road America.. we all are interested to see what everyone has.. There is 5 strong cars.. 2 vettes. 2 GTRs and us…..

I will update after the event today.

-Leh



Here are a few pictures he sent me at 2am

Today was honestly an absolute nail biter. We woke up this morning to rain, wind and cold! Obviously less than optimal circumstances for a DRY skid pad day. All throughout the morning the rain threatened and the wind blew. 46 degrees was the high for the day, so tire temps were down and the track was slippery.

This was the first event that instead of the fast cars going first we went last, so we were literally the last car to run. As the faster cars started running the track was getting faster, but the sky was not looking good. I was pacing like crazy with Doug as if there was something we could do to hurry the event along. If all the cars were to run in the dry and then it was to start raining we would have had a VERY hard time winning the overall points.

We somehow, thank God, were able to fight off the rain as the last few cars ran. The last on the track, Pepper and Leh start around the circle, after the first loop the announcer says “Oh WOW, if he keeps this pace up he will have broken the all time Tire Rack track record” Just a few more times around, Doug and I are chomping at the bit like untamed horses, the car takes the checkered flag as they announce “We have an event winner and have broken the track record holding 1.098g!!!” Needless to say the crowd started cheering and applauding, Doug and I exchanged hugs and high fives, and ran to the car to give the good news to Leh as he drove off the course.

The guys had an absolute blast with this event, and it was such an honor for me to be a small part of history with them. I am so thankful for Leh and Doug! Everyone on the team carried their weight with excellence! Thank You to Brock Yates and all the sponsors for making this wonderful motorsports event possible. We look forward to returning in the coming years to defend our title.

I would like to thank everyone for there support and following us on this great adventure.
