We will be displaying the Supersport Mk2 at every Pirelli World Challenge Series event that the GTS class is running this year! Recently the car was displayed at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in St. Petersburg, Florida. The response from the crowds that viewed the car was tremendous.
The Supersport Mk2 will be located in our Team Paddock, GTS Car #62. Stop by and ask Jackson Stewart any questions you may have about the car. If your schedule and our schedule permit we can arrange for test drives at area tracks either before or after the race.
The next event will be the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama. The car will be on display Thursday April 23 through Saturday April 25th.

The Supersport Mk2 is only sold “race ready”. What do we mean by “race ready”? We mean that you literally can take delivery of the Supersport Mk2 and after spending the delivery day with us, take the car to the track and race it with all the tools to do well at your disposal.
A modern race car is a very complex machine. The brain of that machine is the electronics. The Supersport Mk2 is equipped with a state of the art Life Racing Electronics package, including the F88 GDI4 engine control unit, the PDU 32 power control unit, and a nifty touch pad switch panel. Being truly race ready we include a full software suite providing professional level data analysis. The Life Racing software is easy to learn and is capable of helping the driver and engineer answer all those questions that ultimately make the car and drive one running fast lap times consistently at every track.
The screenshot shows an example of a driver page. Vehicle speed, gear, engine rpm, throttle position, brake pressure, and longitude and latitude g-forces, along with oil pressure are shown on this screen. The ability to reference the track map gives the driver the information he needs to really improve his lap times. Dozens of other channels are available to closely monitor other systems.
The purchase of a Supersport Mk2 is only done direct, with no middlemen. This helps us both insure the quality and keep the price low for the buyer. Every Supersport Mk2 purchase includes a full day of track testing here at Willow Springs Raceway, training on maintenance procedures, and several hours of instruction to learn the use of the Life Racing software.
Our #1 goal is a customer leaving with his new Supersport Mk2 ready to compete and win!
Professional race car driver Craig Stanton came out to Willow Springs International Raceway yesterday to test and help fine tune the new Supersport Mk2. Craig is fresh off his successful 2014 season driving a Porsche 911 GT America in the IMSA GTD class. In the off season Craig is a recognized driving coach and test driver. We were extremely lucky that Craig was able to fit us into his busy schedule.
After taking the Supersport Mk2 out a few minor changes were made according to Craig’s feedback.
Some of Craig’s thoughts? ” Over time I’ve driven a lot of crap. It’s so fun to drive a really good race car”, “You’ve got a really neat thing here”, and “This car is magic!”
We really enjoyed having Craig drive the car. When we set out to develop the Mk2 we set some lofty goals.
1. Performance equal to a Porsche GT3 Supercup car.
2. Purchase price less than half that of the Porsche.
3. Running costs of 10 cents on the dollar compared to the Porsche.
It has been really satisfying that with the help of great professional drivers like Craig Stanton and Stu Hayner we are achieving all of our goals.
A couple more minor changes to the car are in development. A larger intercooler for more safe power and some tweaking to the shocks. After those changes are made watch out! This car is a weapon!
We are looking forward to the upcoming 2015 racing season as plans are coming together for our works team as well as customer teams. 2015, the year of the Supersport Mk2!
We are located on the entrance road to the Willow Springs International Raceway so if you are coming out to the track please make sure to stop by and check out the Supersport Mk2!
Cal Kalishek, owner of Supersport chassis #008 visited Willow Springs Raceway to test drive the new Supersport Mk2.
Cal has put quite a few miles on his original Supersport, both at Hallet, his home track in Oklahoma and Road America where he competes annually with his brother and other family members. Driving coach Allan Crocket was brought in to assist Cal in quickly coming up to speed on the Big Willow course. Not only did Cal have to learn a new track but he also had to familiarize himself with the new level of horsepower and paddle shifted transmission in the all new Mk2.
After a couple of lead follow laps, Cal was getting the feel of the incredibly quick up and down shifts and beginning to get a good sense of the increased horsepower and torque of the Mk2.
The new XAP steering wheel display was a favorite. Cal really liked the visibility of the shift light bars and gear indicator.
After a debrief session with Allan, Cal was ready for more!
Cal’s impression of the new Supersport Mk2? “HOLY CRAP!! Driving this is like going from riding a horse to jumping on a tiger!”. We think he liked it!
We heard from Cal in his own words:
“Just returned home from testing the Supersport Mk2 demo car, chassis #005 at Willow Springs race track, Rosamond, California. All I can say is “WOW” what a tiger. Upgraded turbo, brakes, steering, wheels, tires, transmission, and electronics. The 3MOP sequential transmission and 420 wheel horsepower transforms the driving experience. Car leaps forward with each full power paddle shift gear change. Auto blip downshifts were so smooth I had to check XAP steering wheel readout to verify the gear change. My Supersport chassis #008 is currently being upgraded to Mk2 standard. Will keep you posted upon completion.”
Cal’s Supersport is undergoing upgrading to the Mk2 specs and he can’t wait to turn it loose on Hallet!
The Supersport Mk2 will be on display at the 2014 SCCA National Championship Runoffs, held at Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway October 9-12! We will be in the Marketplace area all four days. Make sure to come by and meet Jackson Stewart and take a good long look at this amazing car.

Professional race car driver Stu Hayner stopped by Willow Springs Raceway and took the Supersport out for a ride. He turned in a great lap of 1:28.740 on a 98 degree, hot, dusty, breezy day. In other words, a typical Willow day! This was the first opportunity Stu has had to drive the car since our recent round of development and improvements. He found the car to be easy to drive and confidence inspiring. View the hot lap video, complete with data and inset roof cam.

Professional race car driver Dane Moxlow and his father Dave flew out to Willow Springs from their home in Michigan to test drive the Supersport. This was Danes first visit to the big track at Willow Springs, known as the “Fastest Road in the West”. After getting a feel for the 2.5 mile road course Dane really began to push the car and lower his lap times.
Jackson Stewart downloaded data from the RLC Racing dash and went over every aspect of the laps with Dane. The video footage from the GoPro is overlaid with the data from that session, allowing the driver to see exactly where any improvements or changes can be made. Both the GoPro camera and RLC Racing Pro X Datalogging Dash System are standard equipment on the Supersport.
Check out the video to see exactly what fun you can have test driving a Supersport!
