Flying Lizard Motorsports Porsche at SEMA in Support of Borla Exhaust
LAS VEGAS, Nev., (October 30, 2017) – One of the largest trade shows to visit Las Vegas is happening October 31 – November 3, 2017, and Flying Lizard Motorsports fans will be able to visit the No. 3 Porsche Cayman Clubsport GT4 MR from this year’s Pirelli World Challenge GTS class. In support of partner Borla Exhaust, the Lizard-liveried car will be on display in the north hall, in space NL19 for the entirety of the show.
Borla Exhaust, the premier performance exhaust manufacturer for race vehicles, worked with Flying Lizard this year to assist in the development of a performance exhaust system for the Cayman Clubsport GT4, creating two different systems for the car. The first system was created specifically for the car to meet the sound regulations while not taking away from the characteristic sound of the flat-six Porsche engine. The second system aimed to obtain maximum horsepower gain while increasing the sound levels. In the end, Borla Exhaust achieved 19% weight saving for the full exhaust while gaining another 20 horsepower for the Porsche Cayman Clubsport GT4. While professional race series regulations for the GT4 class prohibits the systems to be used, the systems are available for consumers and in club racing.
“We’ve been thrilled with Borla’s development on this product, and are impressed with the performance gains,” said Flying Lizard Program Manager Darren Law. “Our partnership produced some impressive technical achievements, and we’re looking forward to what our collaboration will produce next year.”
In addition to the Flying Lizard car supporting Borla in the SEMA North Hall in space NL19, Borla Exhaust will also have a presence in the Central Hall at booth 23243. For SEMA Show information, including registration and floor maps, visit www.semashow.com.
