Piech's Hot Rod: Porsche 914/8

By Mark Zimmerman

So what do you do when you are handed the responsibilities of developing the company’s new entry car platform? If you are Ferdinand PiĆ«ch, grandson of Ferdinand Porsche, you jam the biggest racing engine in it that will fit.


 

The Ford GTs of Robertson Racing

by Erik Jacobs

When thinking of the 24 Heures du Mans that takes place at the fabled Circuit de la Sarthe, Gainesville, Georgia is not the first place that comes to mind. Even though Georgia may conjure associations with the Petit Lemans, a 12-hour enduro that takes place in the fall of each year at Road Atlanta, the storied French endurance event and metro-Atlanta aren't exactly synonymous. Those who fail to make the association between Mulsanne and Gainesville Highway are overlooking a crucial part of Ford's GT racing history, as this is where you will find the current home of Robertson Racing.


 

Project G20 Race Car: Building a More Bulletproof SR20DE!

by Mike Kojima

The good old stock SR20DE in our Project G20 Racecar has been doing yeoman duty, reliably lasting for the last few years racing in the MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championship and doing many for-fun track days.  The stock SR20DE in our Project G20 Racecar came from a Japanese engine importer and has never been opened up, other than to add big cams back when we used to run the car in N/A trim.  For the past three years the engine has been turbocharged which has greatly increased the strain it's experienced.

DRIVER DEVELOPMENT: Learning Processes

by Billy Johnson

How do we become better at driving? Practice makes perfect, right?  Well not necessarily.  Without feedback and direction, additional practice won’t always improve your ability and can possibly lead to the development of bad habits.  So in reality, perfect practice makes perfect.  In Part 2 of the Driver Development series, we discuss how drivers learn to improve their craft through various methods from coaching to data analysis to simulators which all aid in the advancement of the skill of driving.

No Rest For the Studious: The Story of the University of Delaware BHR14 (Part 4)

by David Zipf

In Part 3 of our SAE saga, we finally got our beast running and driving, then promptly threw the diff out like bad Taco Bell.  We then jammed to get the chassis welded back together in time for a powdercoating appointment while we took our final exams.  With the chassis at the paint shop, we pretended to be students long enough to actually graduate.  We then hopped into my trusty old CRV and headed down to see what we got.  If you’ve been reading our first three parts, you’ll remember this was an ambitious redesign, with a split chassis, heavily revised suspension, and large weight saving goals.  We also had a greatly expanded budget and needed to have a car that was not only fast, but looked good too, hence the powdercoating.
