Superchips, the world leader in engine management system tuning, has been appointed as technical consultant to the Michelin Porsche Club Championship.
The role involves inspecting the engine control units (ECUs) of competing cars, to ensure that they are programmed to satisfy strictly defined regulations.
The Michelin Porsche Club Championship is the premier race series organised by the Porsche Club Great Britain and a leading part of Porsche racing in the UK.
Two months ago, Superchips was appointed as official tuning partner for Volkswagen Racing UK and this latest appointment is seen as yet another endorsement of the company’s outstanding capabilities.
Superchips Managing Director Ian Sandford commented: "This is another great honour for the company. Motorsport represents the cutting edge of automotive technology and when it comes to ECUs, our unrivalled expertise and long association with the Porsche Club made us the ideal candidate. The good news for everyday motorists is that the results of much of our research and development work can be transferred to virtually every type of road-going car."
Over 700 models can already benefit from a Superchips conversion. Power and torque can be boosted by as much as 30 per cent, without compromising fuel economy. The job takes around 45 minutes and prices start at under £300 – far cheaper than trading in for a higher-powered car.
Buckingham-based Superchips provides conversions through an 85-strong nationwide network of fitting centres, as well as a fleet of mobile units, which, in some parts of the country, carry out conversions at customers’ homes or places of work. All engine types are catered for, whether normally-aspirated (non-turbo) petrol, turbo petrol or turbo diesel.
