GenRacer takes 1st both races at the Glen 2013

This past weekend we were at Watkins Glen with NASA Northeast for their annual "Thunder at the Glen" round. We brought out the World Challenge Genesis Coupe and competed in the Performance Touring "B" Class. Its a class that fits World Challenge TC cars perfectly.

The Genesis performed "ok" during Saturdays race. We some suspension tuning and brake tuning, we got the car to do some decent lap times. The car felt decent around the road course in Watkins Glen, NY but definitely needed some tweaking to get the car to be more stable in braking and turn out. We were still able to come out on top and also post a lap fast enough to reset the track record in PTB.

That saturday night we did some spring changes and made the appropriate dampening settings to help get the rear more planted on turn out. We also made some damper settings to help with our braking. On Sunday we were on pole again for the start of the race. The race ended with us doing another fast lap to reset the track record and a victory in our class.

The next race will be at the end of October at NJMP - Thunderbolt with NASA Northeast for the final event of the season. We hope to have more changes on the car before then to get this car to handle and brake better. Until then.....

GenRacer PWC Car back to the dyno!

We had some boost spiking issues at our PWC event in Limerock
World Challenge is very strict on boost limits and this needed to be addressed before the next event. 

So we trailered the car up to and met up with Sam at BTRcc to tune the car and get the boost stable. Very good results and the car feels amazing. We will be at Watkins Glenn, NY next week for a NASA race to do some testing. Incar video to come!

Engine/Trans Removed - WC Build

Engine and trans to removed for some telemetry sensors to be installed, clutch, bushings, and other motor preventive items to be address. SCCA rules also state that we need to run 2 drive shaft safety loops and a ballistic shield on the bell housing. We will get to those necessary items at a later time. As for the motor build, we must run the factory turbo and manifolds. The motors will be stock except for Supertech Dual Valve springs that we are still awaiting from the manufacture.

★GenRacer Builds World Challenge Touring Car for 2013★

We have been holding back from posting this build until we knew everything was in place and it was a go! For 2013 we will be campaigning a Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T for SCCA Pro World Challenge Pirelli World Challenge
Since we have been in business, we have raced professionally with Formula D, to Redline Time Attack, and most recently to NASA Pro Racing. This will be the largest challenge for us and a great goal for us to overcome.

The build will conform to the Touring Car class specifications as well as showcase our fabrication and parts we sell. We have been working with numerous manufactures and their products to get them on our car and allowed for competition. Since this is the first Hyundai Genesis to race in SCCA WC, we needed to get the car homologated for this series. WC has multiple race events across the country that interests us greatly. Two of the events are important to us since WC will be the supporting race for Australian V8 Supercar and American LeMans.

The car will also be used for NASA Performance Touring class in the Northeast. Most of our testing will be done with NASA NE NASA NorthEast Region - Safe, Affordable Way to get on the Race Track.
Additionally, all the parts that will be used on this car can be purchased from us and are the same parts we trust and will test on our car. We invite friends and customers to come out to our events and test session to help support us. We also have intentions of installing a removable passenger seat for possible "ride alongs" for our supporting fans.

This thread will showcase our build and our steps in the process to getting out on the track. So please follow us in this thread as it will be very active in the coming future :)
