Michael Levitas; #36 Porsche 991.2, Porsche Sprint Challenge

Hometown: Baltimore, Maryland

Since a young age Michael was always into cars. When attending college at Embry Riddle in Daytona Beach, Michael found ways to get into the speedway during the IMSA races. That was where he made connections with Mazda, Nissan and Consulier to get started in motorsports. From there, he was hooked and started his Porsche business, Turbo Performance Center (now TPC Racing), in the 1980’s making high performance products for Porsche cars and building Porsche cars for the race track. Michael built a Porsche 930 Turbo that he ran the Bonneville Salt Flats to set the record, and then went on to build a Porsche 964 into a track car that he used for Porsche Club, and an SCCA race car which featured the turbo system and suspension components that TPC built, while showcasing everything TPC made for that platform in the 1990’s. Michael won many races with that car and then in the early 2000’s he started racing in the Motorola Cup Series in a Porsche 993. The team moved from the 993 to a multi-car 996 GT3 Cup program in Grand Am Cup and then in 2004 they moved to the Grand Am Rolex Series where Michael competed in the GT class with the 996 Cup car. The team won many races and championships, and in 2006 they won the 24 Hours of Daytona. Michael still owns that car today and walks past it every morning going to his office in the race shop. After winning the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, Michael took a few years off from professional racing to expand the business at TPC Racing and DSC Sport and then got into the IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Series in 2011. Since then, Michael has been run in Porsche single make series and has been very successful. He has won two championships himself and the team has won three. Michael’s son Harris has taken to his passion for racing and has been running the TPC Racing team since 2016. Michael now races a Porsche 991.2 in the Porsche Sprint Challenge Series.

Let’s build something together.
