Thank you all for the nice congratulations...

Here I am with the championship trophy - it has the winner for each year engraved on a plate and you get to keep it for the following season and the winning trophy (that I get to keep). My team mate Timo who got 2nd overall is next to me.




The team also released the 2014 promo video today - enjoy!!!

Looks great -- what can be done to the Boxster S OEM front end
to improve the air flow --

I've got a drive to the track Boxster S and its gets a little warm here in Texas.

I don't really want to hack up the car -- but if there is some low hanging fruit/mods
I'd be interested in that --

web links would work great.


thanks,

Mike

.- Have you cleaned out the radiators recently?
.- Make sure that there is no way for the air to go past the radiators (air will take path of least resistance)
.- Put a relay or switch on the cooling fans, so that you can keep them running longer manually.

My issues were a collection of things that gave me a cooling issue at the end of the season.

.- I removed the cooling fans to reduce weight.
.- The gt3 front bumper I put on last season did not match well with the cooling guides to the radiators, so I had large gaps for the cool air to bypass the radiators.
.- The race in Sweden was a longer faster track at a hotter day.

2014 did not quite start the way I had planed it - Interesting way to start the 2014 season - Pål Krogdahl



But whilst I am stuck with a bad leg, my friends at LT-Studio have started the body work on the Boxster








Thought I would also promote my new web site and blog - Pål Krogdahl | Porsche SportsCup Driver with Team CoolCava Racing as well as the two new CCR web sites at CoolCava Racing | Porsche Racing and Motorsports Engineering | Porsche Racing and Motorsports Engineering

Thought I would share some pictures from the ongoing RSR project - the font end is close to ready now, and we are deciding what to do about the rear end...

Some times words are not required and we can let the picture do all the talking - I think this is one of those times

The car is almost completed and ready to make the trip back home from LT-Studio who have undertaken this body modification for me

Car looks great! I would not want that filling my rear view mirror!

Previous pic looks like you had more lead implants put in your gas foot, is that legal?

Anything to make me go faster

Racing season is soon starting here in Finland - first race is on 18th of May, and the car is close to race ready... The bodywork is 99% done, just requires some fine tuning and then the car will be moved back to the workshop to have some mechanical stuff sorted out before first race...

Was planning to get the live video feed sorted out before the first race, but due to other issues i have not been able to get that finalized in time - focus now is getting the car ready for first race, and then I will do as much of the other things as possible after.

As always, feel free to follow the blog Pål Krogdahl | Porsche SportsCup Driver with Team CoolCava Racing and www.coolcavaracing.com

Figured it was time for a quick update...

The season did not start as good for me this year I suffered issues with the clutch at the first race of the season and had to retire just two laps into the warm up session during the morning.

So I packed up the car and drove home to fix it and get ready for the next race which is now on Saturday. I tested the car last Friday after replacing the clutch for a new one and she was running great again and ready for the race.

I will try to remember to post results from the race on Saturday on here, but updates are always posted on www.paulkrogdahl.com

Some action pictures from the test session last Friday.

Wow, Did not post anything last season - sorry for that!!!

Will try to do better this season

But for now, we had the 2015 season start last weekend at Ahvenisto, and all in all it was not a bad start to the season. I took 1st in class for race one and 2nd in class for race two.

The new top from Eric along with some other small changes has managed to get the car from approx. 1341kg wet with driver last year to 1214kg this year

Will need to look at suspension configuration and alignment, as the way the car was set-up last year does no longer feel best with the new lighter car...
