GMG Global Motorsports Group Racing Getting Ready for the Race Season!!!

Since I will get to cover ALMS this year on top of the usual Formula Drift, XDC, and Redline Time Attack, I stopped by GMG Racing in Santa Ana Thursday to chat and lurk around, checking out the how they are getting ready for the 2011 season and whatever other projects they have going on.

Panoramic shot of GMG's state-of-the-art 15,000 square feet shop. "The shop is a showroom", says Fabryce Kubyta, the shop's co-founder. Inside, you will find customer's street cars - Porsches, Audis, and Ferraris - getting worked on side by side with ALMS Cup Cars by the very same technicians. With the experience of building, tuning, and racing at the some of the highest levels of motorsports, the level of capability and knowledge here is probably unmatched almost anywhere. Also, interesting fact, Lexus corporate rented out the Mustang AWD 500SE Chassis Dynamometer with a sound proof environmental control test cell at GMG for the filming of the LF-A commercial!

Older 996 GT3 Cup Cars stored away, probably relegated to club racing duties now.
