03 Sep On The Bucket (Carbon Seat) List
Meet Chris Germana’s 2007 Porsche 911 GT3. When not in the Motor Werke shop or hitting the trails on his mountain bike, you’ll find him at Area 27 working on his lap time.
If you love fast cars, then you should definitely check out this track. The 4.83km world-class circuit is a hidden gem, located just 5 minutes East of Oliver, B.C. Featuring one-on-one coaching from some of Canada’s top motorsport professionals, this Grand Prix style track offers luxurious amenities for the motorsport enthusiast and is available to drivers looking to refine their driving skills.
But let’s get back to this Porsche 911 and why on earth Chris would pull out perfectly good seats from his prized car.
Has he gone mad? Well, maybe.
But, the good kind.
The kind of madness that takes over when you’re truly passionate about European cars and you know that a simple upgrade dramatically improves functionality, safety, stability and looks damn good.
These carbon race bucket seats allow for the Schroth 6 point harness creating extra safety and stability on the track. So, when the thrilling high of the G force sets in and tries to lift you right out of your seat, these seats keep you grounded.
They also cause fast weight loss. No, not you! The car. Each factory seat weighs approximately 80 lbs. That’s a lot of weight to carry around on the track. Upgraded carbon seats? Only 25-30 lbs.
Lastly, they look really cool. Need we say more?
Disclaimer: Motor Werke is not responsible for an increase in lap time post carbon seat installation. This may be caused by the individual driver. However, we STRONGLY encourage more practice time on track and will not rat you out to your workplace when you take a sick day to do so.
