Reigning World Sportscar Masters champion and manufacturer of premium lightweight Porsche body panels, EB Motorsport, has agreed worldwide distribution of its parts and classic racing products with 2011 Dutch Historic GT champion and European distributor of WEVO and Zuffenhaus Porsche products, TwinSpark Racing.
Mark Bates of EB Motorsport and Leonard Stolk of Twinspark Racing sealed their agreement while both were still in racing overalls, following the 2012 Masters round at Zandvoort in the Netherlands.
Mark Bates, EB Motorsport:
“We started making our lightweight Porsche panels after disappointment with the parts bought when building our first 911. We now manufacture a wide range of quality products for classic 911 road cars and racers, and are the sole route to market for other products of the highest quality from reclusive parts manufacturers.
“Handing sales & distribution to fellow enthusiasts and racers at TwinSpark Racing, a respected aftermarket Porsche brand located close to home, means our parts will reach a wider audience, while we can concentrate on racing and extending our product range. This year, we’ve got two 911s on track all season, and are building a 1965 911. We’re also working on many more products for classic Porsches. Plenty to keep us busy!”
Leonard Stolk, Twinspark Racing (above right, with Mark):
“From the moment Mark and I met at Zandvoort, we had lots in common. Our respective companies were born from dissatisfaction with the products available when we began building our own cars. Now, Twinspark and EB Motorsport both run championship-winning, fully homologated FIA-legal cars. We don’t want to fit substandard parts to our Porsches: we only want the best.
“This partnership ensures Porsche enthusiasts have a simple path to quality lightweight parts at sensible prices. EB’s Light Yellow championship-winning RSR is a perfect 911, and our recent visit to the company’s impressive production facility, established in the UK for more than fifty years, was a great experience. EB is a special brand with big potential, and Twinspark Racing’s network of European dealers can help develop that potential. Together, we can help more people build their dream 911!”
Ferdinand offers hearty congratulations on the news. I’m doubly pleased as it’s two very good friends of mine doing business together, all off the back of their devotion to racing Porsche cars. Good work!
