of this fun day was to film the "maybe in the future"
reality television show called "Palm Beach Racers".
We've been asked by a Burbank-Hollywood Production Company
to participate in a Reality TV program based on the complete
family operation of Gunnar Porsche Racing. This series will
feature the trials and tribulations of our son, Gunnar, and
of course, the everyday happenings at Gunnar Racing, including
racing events. The film crew has already shot two days on
the current projects we are now involved in. We will find
out by the end of September if the show is a GO.
started rolling last Sunday at the shop and finished up at
Moroso on Tuesday, August 17th. Some of our customers just
happened to be in town for the shoot. Driving the above cars
were Marc Brune (G99), Wayne Jackson (Lowenbrau 962), and
Gunnar (in our Grand Am GT3-R).
battery makes for great TV drama and 5 fat asses.
Gunnar giving Lance Willsey a little track training. Gunnar
is not only an ALMS Panoz GT driver this season, he is also
an instructor for the Panoz Driving School in his spare time.
Gunnar also drives our GT3-R in Grand Am races whenever we
get a chance to run. This was Lance's first time in a GT3-R
but he is no stranger to racing Porsches. He owns the red
'97 RSR shown in the photo below.
Lance is driving his RSR and Gunnar is giving Mako Squadron
F-14 fighter pilot, John Poor, a ride in "Sally".
is chatting with Wayne, Gunnar is taking a break, and Jesea
is getting filmed watching the drivers zoom down the straight.
Hopefully we'll be doing a lot more of this in the near future.
