Porsche Racing and Track Services in Danbury, CT
Since 1985, Speedsport Tuning has helped hundreds of Porsche clients realize their motorsports ambitions. From their very first track day to a weekend at the legendary Nürburgring. From a Drivers Education day at Lime Rock Park to a PCA podium at Sebring and all the way to the highest levels of American professional sports car racing. Our clients have racked up nearly 300 podiums and 200 wins in just the last eight years making Speedsport Tuning the winningest Porsche Club competition shop in the Northeast!
Our Porsche expertise is unmatched. We’re equally skilled at adjusting a Weber carburetor in a classic 911, as we are rebuilding the sequential gearbox in a 997 GT3 Cup car. Speedsport Tuning’s staff of race-tested technicians and Porsche specialists will handle your car with the care that you would expect. We give you that competitive edge from years of knowing and doing what it takes to run at the front of the pack. Whether you need logistics & transport for a season of sanctioned racing, or you are getting ready for your first club race or Driver’s Education event, we’re here to help.
Are you looking to create the perfect track machine? We’ve been building race-winning track cars for 30 years and we have the distinction of building the first Cayman track car in North America. Way back in 2006. Looking for something even faster? Speedsport has been prepping and maintaining winning Porsche Cup cars since 2001.
Spencer Cox is not your typical service facility owner. In addition to being a master mechanic, Spencer has been building race-winning racecars for more than thirty years. But unlike most race technicians, Spencer is equally adept and skilled behind the wheel. In a Cayman built by our own technicians at Speedsport Tuning, Spencer won the 2015 PCA National Championship and, in 2016, won the PCA National Championship in a 997 GT3 Cup. Spencer Cox also has the distinction of both working as a crew member for a Daytona 24 Hour-winning race team and driving in the world-famous 24 hour race himself … in a Porsche of course!
Being able to drive a competition car at the limit gives Spencer a unique ability when it comes to track set-up for our clients. He can quickly diagnose and correct an issue to keep you at the front of the pack. If you want the winning edge, give Spencer a call to discuss your goals.
