Autometrics Motorsports’ history can be traced back to 1988 when Gordon Friedman, President of Autometrics, Inc., worked the IMSA season with Brun Motorsports’ Prototype effort. During this period, along with knowledge and experience with professional racing came aspirations for his own racing endeavors.
Involvement in the Porsche Club of America’s (PCA) Drivers’ Education program introduced Autometrics, which had been primarily an import repair shop, to track cars and performance driving. In 1999, when track work took over the majority of the business, Autometrics Motorsports split off as its own entity. This was also when we decided to make the jump from amateur racing to professional racing.
Our professional racing resume includes World Challenge, Grand Am Rolex, ALMS, Grand Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, and IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge. Highlights include campaigning the final air-cooled 911 in the Daytona 24 in 2001; podium finishes in Rolex Series from 2002-2004; a race win and 3rd in the Team Championship in the 2005 Rolex Series; multiple podiums and wins in the 2006 CTSCC, narrowly losing the Championship and finishing 2nd with Marcus Motorsports; and multiple podiums and wins earning 2nd in the IMSA Challenge Platinum class in 2011.
We continue to be highly active in PCA Club Racing, building and support cars for all classes. Our drivers earn numerous wins and podiums and set new track records every season.
