TPC Racing is the Mid-Atlantic's premier maintenance, service, tuning and modification center dedicated solely to Porsche sportscars. This long time focus on only one make, Porsche, has enabled us to become experts in Porsche service, tuning, and racing.

TPCRacing has its roots in the IMSA Supercar Series of the late 1980’s and early 1990s, where team owner and driver Mike Levitas managed the turbocharger programs that gave the fire-breathing Nissan 300ZX, Mazda RX7 Twin Turbo, Lotus Turbo Esprit and Consulier GTPs their prodigious power. By combining a lifetime of automotive enthusiasm, business experience and technical skill with advanced aeronautical training and certifications, Levitas has managed to extend the engineering of some of the most advanced and well-regarded machines in existence – Porsche race cars.

After climbing the Porsche Club Racing ranks starting in 1992, Levitas and TPCRacing ascended to Motorola Cup action in 1999, driving a mix of Mercedes sedans and Porsches. In 2000, TPCRacing began entering races under its own banner, and since has scaled the heights of the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series, winning more than 20 times in class and claiming an unprecedented 1-2-3-4 sweep of a major driver’s championship. In fact, TPCRacing was so dominant that over the course of the entire season, the championship-winning #36 car never finished a race off the podium.

In January 2006, TPCRacing reached the summit of international sports car racing – the team clinched a class win at the famed Rolex 24 At Daytona, even after suffering a major mechanical problem just hours into the race, when the onboard hydraulic airjack system failed. Typical of Levitas’ blue-collar crew and drivers, the team focused on minimizing mistakes on the track, and turned a 10-second disadvantage in each pit stop – to manually jack up one side of the car, then the other – into an opportunity. Leading the race for the last nine hours, TPCRacing stayed in front of the mighty GM-factory supported GTO.Rs, winning by two clear laps.

To this day, TPCRacing remains active in the Porsche community where the team laid down roots, and uses the team’s professional, club racing and street Porsches to develop engine and suspension components for its partners. TPCRacing has an aggressive engineering program, focused on developing powerful superchargers and responsive shocks and dampers for professional and clubsport cars, keeps performance-hungry Porsche owners fed a steady diet of racing-derived aftermarket parts.
