Unleashing the Beast: Fitzgerald Racing Services' 997.2 Turbo Track Car

In the realm of precision automotive engineering, Fitzgerald Racing Services stands in the vanguard. Known for our Porsche performance prowess, motorsport mastery, and superior servicing, we have recently concluded an electrifying project: a specially outfitted Porsche 997.2 Turbo track car. We've merged passion, expertise, and technological mastery into a singular vehicle designed to dominate both the streets and the race track.

The project's primary beneficiary is our loyal customer, Sally Anne Hains, who now has a track-ready monster car featuring a comprehensive suite of high-performance upgrades at her disposal.

Under the hood, we've installed TTE Highflow Turbos, which significantly increase the power and efficiency of the engine. Coupled with our custom Evolve Technik ECU Tune and the Water Methanol Injection system, these modifications maximize power output and fuel efficiency, making this 997.2 Turbo a true force to be reckoned with on any track.

Accompanying the custom setup is a Wagner intercooler and a Kline Inconel Exhaust system. These components work together to ensure optimal temperature control and reduced back pressure for a significant boost in engine performance. We've also equipped the beast with an IPD Plenum and Y Pipe to further increase air velocity and volume to the combustion chamber.

The engine's heart is strengthened with forged pistons and rods, ensuring resilience under high pressure and temperature conditions. To cap off the engine enhancements, we've installed a Dodson Clutch Kit and Extended Sump, a custom Modena LSD, and a Water Methanol Injection system with a custom reservoir. These additions contribute to the car's robust drivetrain and enhance its overall performance.

It's not just about sheer speed and power, though. This Porsche 997.2 Turbo track car has been designed with an emphasis on control and safety as well. The Bilstein Coilover Suspension, Essex Brake Upgrade, Tarret Engineering Bladed Sway Bars, and Tarret Suspension Arms and linkages have been installed to ensure impeccable handling, stability, and maneuverability at high speeds.

For safety, we've integrated a custom roll cage that provides additional protection to the occupant during track sessions or any unforeseen circumstances. This, along with our comprehensive lightweight program, strikes the perfect balance between safety and speed.

The result? A roaring beast that recorded a staggering 9.8sec 1/4 mile and numerous successful outcomes at events such as Challenge Bathurst and Porsche Club of Victoria. The car also dominated the Victoria Supersprint series, taking home the winner's trophy in 2017 and 2019.

Although the estimated power output of this phenomenal machine is 700PS and 950Nm, the actual power has been challenging to measure. The car's advanced 4WD drivetrain and complex traction control system have proven too formidable for the dyno. That being said, the proof is in the pudding and this car has certainly proved itself 10x over on the track.

In conclusion, this Porsche 997.2 Turbo track car exemplifies Fitzgerald Racing Services' commitment to precision, performance, and innovation. This project signifies not only a win for Sally Anne Hains, but for all lovers of high-performance, race-ready machines. It stands as a testament to our dedication to pushing the boundaries of what's possible in automotive engineering.
