Evening Chaps,

Should be picking up a 996 mk1 GT3 this week for track duties, couldn’t quite stretch to a club sport sadly but does have tequipment cage fitted from new (according to receipts) also has GT2 front brakes and Alcon discs (fitted by OPC from Early life). I have my own seat to go in from my turbo, would loving original units but too much for me when I already have a comfy bucket, to go in.

Masses of receipts for work done over the years so fingers crossed minimal issues should arise.

Just thought I would check in and also is there any recommendations/must haves for the mk1’s other than regular fluid changes and lots of tyres thumbsup

She will never be a garage queen and can’t wait to get first track day book!

What a fantastic combo, same engine at their core but everything else so different, what a fascinating prospect, hope you post your experiences. A mk1 with uprated brakes, what’s not to like Thumb

Ahh apologise for that. But she will be taken care of but thoroughly worked out around back roads and tracks of UK and Europe.

Hope you find a GT3 soon we should have a Mk1 owners track day 😂
