We have a huge announcement! eEuroparts.com is partnering with Indian Summer Racing to acquire an Audi RS 3 LMS USA Clubsport. Together we’re establishing LMS Performance Group, LLC to own and operate the Audi, which will compete in the remainder of the Touring Car season in Pirelli World Challenge®. The Indian Summer Racing team sponsored by eEuroparts.com is ending their TCB season early to compete in the TC class for the remaining three races of the season. The decision to forgo the remainder of the TCB season did not come lightly as driver Travis Washay is currently fourth in points, with two podium finishes this year, including a win at Virginia International Speedway. However, we both concluded that the opportunity the Audi RS 3 LMS program presented was too good to pass up. The decision to participate in the Audi Sport customer racing program to develop the RS 3 LMS here in the U.S. is
There’s a running gag with the inner New England dub scene that it will ALWAYS rain for the Dustoff. Meant to “Dust Off” your VW or Audi show car after a winter of careful storage, the Dustoff 2017 is meant to be the groan and stretch after a long hibernation, and it’s HUGE! Thousands of devote attendees filled their cooling systems put air in their tires, and put another zip tie on their distributor caps (I kid) and made the hike out to Thompson Speedway this April 29th, and we were there selling eEuroFest packages, giving away site credits, and soaking up the sun rays for the first time in all the Dustoffs we’ve attended. We are exited to have Blake and Tom as the car show managers for OUR show at Lime Rock (we are calling in the bigtime experience), and this year the show ran without a hitch.
eEuroparts is very excited to announce our partnership with Indian Summer Racing and sponsorship of Travis Washay and his Mini Cooper (he’ll need some Mini Cooper parts) for the 2017 season of the Pirelli World Challenge® Championships. Travis drives the Mini Cooper in the Touring Car B (TCB) class, a small stock-style class where cars use manufacturer-set specifications. The Pirelli World Challenge® Championships The Pirelli World Challenge® Championships provide teams, manufacturers and aftermarket suppliers a competitive production-based race series in which to prove their products. The series dates back to 1972, when the Sports Car Club of America formed a new club racing class for stock street cars. It wasn’t until 2012 that the Pirelli World Challenge® introduced the Touring Car B spec class, which has gone on to feature up and coming drivers breaking into the professional ranks and driving cars like the Honda FIT, Fiat 500, Mazda 2, Chevy Sonic, and the
This weekend, April 21-23, we are debuting the brand new eEuro 9-3 at Watkins Glen International at our third season opener for American Endurance Racing (AER) (click for schedule). We’re entering the third year of our partnership with AER as the official parts sponsor. As car and racing enthusiasts, we’re dedicated to supporting AER, their staff and all of our fellow racers, near and far. As some of you have been following, we’ve been building a Saab 9-3 race car to be competitive as a class 3 race car at AER. To recap the Saab 9-3 parts we upgraded, our new car is brandishing a tuned 4cyl turbo B207 engine using Wiseco forged pistons and Molnar forged H-Beam connecting rods. The engine is connected to a huge Do88 intercooler cooling system on one side, and a fat Krona 3in Downpipe exhaust system on the other, this eEuro 9-3 is lean and mean, with
For the 2nd year in a row, the Sahlen’s Sports Car Springfest will kick off the racing season at Watkins Glen International. For the weekend, Sports Cars of all types and speed will be competing in the American Endurance Racing event. At the inaugural event in 2016, a full grid of 75 race cars took the green flag.

The race weekend will kick off with Sahlen’s hosting the Friday night tailgate party. Sahlen’s Hot Dogs and Sausages will of course be the highlight to the evening’s festivities. Then on Saturday, the 1st of the weekend’s 9 hour Endurance races will commence at 9 am. Sunday will see the American Endurance Racing series line up again for another 9 hour
