Jackson and Melinda Stewart of 999 Motorsports visited Atlanta Motorsports Park April 9-14th, 2013 to tune and service the Supersports bought by customers at that track.
Over the last few months data collected by the owners Jeremy Porter and John Daniel showed that the AMP track requires a different chassis tune than the development tracks used in the west. Each car received a new spring package and complete re-set-up of all the suspension settings.
The cars had an opportunity to briefly run together on Thursday. Some additional adjustments were made for the Saturday Member Day, with Jeremy Porter setting a new fast lap for a Supersport at 1:26.50. When exiting the car Jeremy exclaimed “This car is freaking awesome!”. Although not quite as experienced as Jeremy with race cars and karts, John was amazed at what a difference a relatively small amount of tuning changes could make in a real race car. “It’s just a day and night difference in the way the car handles and drives” he said upon exiting the car after the first session.
Jackson was extremely happy with how well the Supersports responded to set-up changes and given how predictable the cars are is very confident that it will be easy for customers to tune and extract the maximum performance from the car at their home tracks.
It was really fun to watch the two cars on track together, kicking butt on cars costing many thousands of dollars more! Melinda Stewart, photographer for 999 Motorsports USA, was amazed once again at how fun the atmosphere and people at the track are and also how beautiful the setting is. The progress they have made with their facility in the last few months was exciting to see.
