Building upon the success of previous seasons, Socii Racing LLC, DBA Truspeed Autosport has signed ATG to be their long term engineering partner. ATG will continue to provide at-track race engineering as well as off-track engineering and development support of their Porsche race cars. With the 2014 introduction of the new 991 Porsche GT3 Cup car, a lot will need to be done to reverse engineer the car and prepare advanced simulations to ensure Truspeed Autosport stays at the front of the field. We are very excited to expand our relationship and look forward to a very successful future on and off the track.

Pat was flawless and the team operated perfectly securing a pole position and solid win for Porsche. Click here for an article where Patrick Long offers praise to the team and the engineering provided by Steve Trindade of ATG.

The crew hustled and repaied the car in time for the race later that same day. After a hard race, Laswon finished 5th keeping our championship hopes alive.
