...and all the lat­est­must-have stuff

Top-end af­ter­mar­ket sus­pen­sion gu­rus, Oh­lins, is ex­pand­ing its Porsche range, with a spe­cific fo­cus on de­vel­op­ing and test­ing new kits at its test cen­tre in Meuspath, Ger­many. The com­pany is us­ing ex­pe­ri­ence gained from mo­tor­sport, where it has been lift­ing tro­phies in Indy Car, Le Mans 24hr, WTCC, GT classes, rally and numer­ous Nür­bur­gring events. Oh­lins also de­vel­oped the sus­pen­sion for Singer's range of retro in­spired cars.

Oh­lins’ Meuspath test cen­tre is based right next to the Nür­bur­gring, with its de­mand­ing twists, turns and sur­face chal­lenges. Oh­lins has teamed up with the renowned lo­cal Fri­cadel Rac­ing squad to race a 991 GT3 in the VLN En­durance and Nür­bur­gring 24hr race, with lo­cal ’Ring star, Sabine Sch­mitz, at the wheel. If you were at the re­cent Good­wood Fes­ti­val of Speed, you might have seen both Sabine and her ma­chine on the Oh­lins stand.

Oh­lins al­ready have a wide range of sus­pen­sion kits for Porsches. We'll be try­ing a Road and Track 996 kit on one of our projects and we're hop­ing for a set-up that will re­ally work with UK roads. Oh­lins has just launched kits for 981/991 mod­els in its Road and Track range. As the name sug­gests, they are de­signed for both. Sim­ple ad­justers al­low a car to be eas­ily 'di­alled-in' for fo­cused cir­cuit use, be­fore driv­ing home in bump-ab­sorb­ing com­fort, thanks to Oh­lins’ Dual Flow Valve and TTX (Twin Tube) tech­nol­ogy.
