The world of professional sports and racing have many parallels. Both require determination and endurance which is why many athletes enjoy having well-engineered cars in their collection. To elaborate on his devotion to Porsche, MLB Pitcher C.J. Wilson explains how determination and innovation lead to success. He admits he wasn’t the biggest or strongest competitor on the field, but with attention to the details, he found ways to succeed. Porsche’s endurance racing efforts have used similar strategies to get podium finishes, finding areas for improvement that other teams have overlooked.
As the owner of CJ Wilson Racing, he is fielding two Porsche Cayman GT4s in the Grand Sport division of the Continental SportsCar Challenge. A glance of his Twitter page reveals that he is happy with the results from early testing, and looking forward to Friday’s BMW Endurance Challenge at Daytona. As a 4 hour prelude to this weekend’s Rolex 24, it will be a brutal test of man and machine. Porsche wants us to know they are ready for battle, so they asked CJ to explain his love of the brand. He looks at home behind the wheel of a 911 GT3 RS in a YouTube video uploaded yesterday. A grueling workout routine is how he became a two-time All Star. Relentless refinement is how the GT3 RS makes 500 hp without turbos. We wish him well in Friday’s race, so stay with us for complete coverage of Daytona Speedweeks 2017.
