BBi Autosport has partnered with Pankl Racing Systems to push forward Additive Manufacturing for production of automotive performance and lifestyle components. The automotive events during car week in Monterey were a perfect opportunity to present what we have been working on and what is to come. We brought along the fastest Porsche to ever take on Pikes Peak - Lucy, the fastest stock engine Porsche - BBi GT2 RS VMax. Lisa Taylor, one of our close friends, was kind enough to show off her Ultramarine Blue PTS 991 GT3 as well!
Werks Reunion, hosted by Porsche Club of America at the Corral de Tierra Country Club, was created to celebrate the Porsche marquee and to bring together enthusiasts, collectors, legends and fans. Its an very well done event with a people coming together from across the world. It was great talking to all the enthusiasts and educating them on the power of 3D printing, how BBi uses it and what the future holds.
The new Titanium GT2 RS Exhaust was on display showcasing the printed X section and tips. We also brought along the 991 Turbo intake manifold and new aero components. These parts fully utilize 3D printing to take advantage of minimal material usage, maximum utility with unique design elements.
The Pikes Peak race car was then moved on to the Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion to be displayed by Michelin. The Motorsport Reunion event features many vendors and more importantly racing events. Historic racecars roar around the track from all decades.
Michelin is a long time BBi partner as creators of the best tires for road and race use. The Michelin racing slicks were a major factor in our success at Pikes Peak. We were honored to have Lucy on display at such an event along with other titans of motorosport and history.
