Brumos Ends Circuit of the Americas Debut with Podium Celebration

austin 10

For Brumos Racing, a trip to Austin’s new Circuit of the Americas presented both opportunities and challenges. The second round of 2013 Rolex Series competition marked their Austin debut and was one of the most highly anticipated races of the season. The new facility did not disappoint, drawing high marks from crew and drivers. While many of their competitors had tested at the facility previously, the track was new to Brumos, so the team focused on preparation in the weeks before the race. Their research and hard work paid off, as the car proved to be strong right off the truck. Andrew Davis showcased the Brumos Porsche 911 GT3 for the large crowd of Texas fans, putting the #59 in 3rd place for the start of the race in a strong qualifying performance.

Brumos capitalized on yellows, ran a clean race, executed flawless pit stops, and finished what they had started — ending the eventful race on the podium in 3rd place. The finish was not without controversy, as the front-running car failed to serve a penalty they had been assessed before the race ended. The penalty was enforced post-race and standings were adjusted, restoring Brumos to the third place finish they had earned.

Leh Keen gave it his all in the closing laps, posting some of the fastest times in the field while avoiding problems. “It was really crazy at the end,” he said. “There was a lot of bumping and banging going on between several cars. It was just great to be able to get the podium for our team. I couldn’t be more proud of our guys – morale was high throughout the week, the car was good off the truck, and all the changes we made were positives. At race time, we knew we had a really strong car that could run up front. It was definitely an exciting race, and as the first Rolex Series race at this new track, it was a major event. After a tough run at Daytona, getting this 3rd place finish was really special, not just for Andrew and me, but for the entire Brumos team. Now we are ready to take this momentum on to our next race at Barber and hope to give our fans even more to cheer about.”

After starting in 3rd, Andrew Davis held his own throughout the opening stint, keeping the #59 up front with the leaders before pitting under yellow for the driver change. Davis described the race as thrilling, saying, “It means so much to be on the podium in this inaugural event here in Austin, and to have Brumos Racing back where we belong is really rewarding. Our crew worked tirelessly throughout the event and we improved steadily. We knew we needed to focus on our own game plan and not worry about other cars, and that is what we did. Leh and I ran a clean race and kept ourselves near the front all day long. The pit stops were perfect, strategy was sound, and some the late race penalties and issues other teams were having worked to our advantage. I am really thankful to everyone in the Brumos Companies and everyone on our team for giving us a great opportunity and a great car to race.”

The 3rd place finish at Circuit of the Americas marks the first season podium for Brumos and puts the team in 4th place in the GT team standings, now only ten points out of 1st. Brumos’ next race, round three of the Rolex Series season, will be held at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, AL. It will take place on Saturday, April 6, 2013.

Genève 2013 Live : Porsche Cayman

ouverture12 Genève 2013 Live : Porsche CaymanDévoilé à la fin de l’an dernier en première mondiale à Los Angeles, le Porsche Cayman fait ses grands débuts européens à Genève. A l’instar de sa grande soeur la Porsche 911, le Cayman change tout en restant le même. Sacré challenge.

La silhouette change dans tous ses détails, mais reste globalement la même. Coupé à moteur central arrière, le Cayman a les hanches larges et les flancs échancrés. Relativement proche dans sa philosophie et son dessin des 911 « d’antan », le Cayman passe également par la case régime pour perdre environ 30 kilos. La puissance évolue un peu à la hausse en revanche.

Véritable sportive capable de se déchainer sur circuit, mais aussi capable de vous emmener loin dans un excellent confort, ce Cayman réussit à exister coincé qu’il est entre son jumeau chatoyant le Boxster et la reine mère la 911. Cette version S vient même titiller sans complexe la 911 « d’entrée de gamme ».
