Last week saw history being written at the NORRA 1000, on the Baja peninsula in Mexico.
Two 1989 Porsche 911's, build by Rothsport Racing would be the first production-based Porsche's to finish the world-famous event in its 50 years. The event saw competitors race nearly 1200 miles in five days, over some of the most treacherous conditions on the planet.
See Instagram for pictures of the build >>.
Entered into the Vintage Production class, the cars underwent a ground up restoration by Rothsport Racing.
The two 911's where piloted by Jeff Gamroth/Carl VanAusten in the #89 car, and Cameron Healy/Jeff Zwarts in the #65 "Desert Flyer". During the event, there was both controlled-speed and special stages, the later of the two allowing the cars to race at maximum attack like a typical rally stage. Up against some stiff competition, the cars finished 3rd and 4th in their class.
EXE-TC has had many years experience supplying teams around the world who take on the challenging conditions faced by many of the worlds toughest rallies. The cars used our 4-way adjustable suspension both front and rear, as well as bespoke top mounts.
Everyone here at EXE-TC would like to send a huge congratulations to Jeff Gamroth and the team at Rothsport Racing. We hope to see these cars in action again in the future soon.
