Europacific and Carrera Sport entered the Motor Racing scene in 2000 when they built up a 911 2.4S that was leased to Adam Cooper to run in the Bridgestone Porsche Series. The track activities grew and by 2004 the team consisted of eight cars, including Stephen Rasmussen himself. Carrera Sport has scaled down over the past few years but still offers race support and preparation to a number of cars in theBridgestone and Targa road rally events throughout the year.
