It’s that time of the year again when we acknowledge and thank our dealers, distributors and supporters for all the hard work and effort they’ve put in over the last 12 months. It gives us an even greater pleasure announce the select few that have stood above the rest in the commitment to the Turbosmart brand.
A successful week-long run of motorsports business activity concluded Saturday as the 2011 PRI Trade Show at the Orange County Convention in Orlando, Florida, came to a close.
“It was a very strong show, which we saw early barometers of with standing-room only at the breakfast on Thursday, and then with really strong numbers at our on-site registration,” said Steve Lewis, PRI Trade Show producer. “We had three strong days that continued with people writing orders well into this afternoon. But more important than it being a good week for PRI, it was a really good week for the industry. What was going on in that building for the last three days will affect people at race tracks racing businesses around the world.”
Approximately 38,000 credentials were printed up for the PRI Trade Show, said Lewis.

Once again, this year’s PRI Trade Show was buoyed by an exceptional international turn-out. Attendees from all over the world showed that racers have no boundaries or borders when it comes to reaching their one common goal – to go faster.
Turbosmart’s “e-Boost Xmas Tree” proved popular attracting visitors with its ingenious design.
Turbosmart has been attending the PRI show for a number of years and had a number of brand new products on its stand – scheduled for release in early 2012. Among them a new Vee Port PRO and a brand new range of internal wastegates.
Re-designed from the ground up, the new Vee-Port PRO is 20% smaller and 33% lighter than its predecessor. Featuring a hard anodized aluminum piston, the new Vee Port PRO offers high flow capabilities in a lighter, more compact package.

Vee Port PRO suits most turbocharged applications and is ideal for custom installs in tight spots or for those seeking a weight advantage.
• Unique high flow ports and new piston design provides quicker response and better sealing capabilities.
• V-Band clamp for mechanical fastening to the weld flange
• Optimized spring for greater adjustability and a 360 degree swivel vacuum fitting.
Vee Port PRO is available with a blue or black cap.
