The TSR Performance Golf GTI is their first race car they have built for their own use for around 15 years. Having built many track day and performance cars for clients and maintained and developed race cars the decision was taken to return to the race track to showcase TSR's preparation standards as well as testing products on a Sunday that are sold on a Monday by TSR from companies such as Revo, Miltek, Powerflex, Tarox, Corbeau, Luke and Ohlins to name but a few.
Tom Walker who has been with TSR since he was an apprentice and over the last 15 years has seen great changes in the VAG tuning world has been primarily responsible for the build of the MK5 and commented 'Production GTI offered us a great opportunity to return to competition with a very level playing field and with a car of a sensible build cost. We can now build cars for clients looking to enter the series be they experienced competitors or new to motor racing. We have been used to building big horsepower VAG powered cars for a number of years but to develop a car to some strict rules and really focus on chassis set up, braking and how all of this affects handling has been a refreshing challenge. We can now use this knowledge gained on the track to benefit all of our clients even further and have plans to build another VAG based race car but one with some serious BHP to compete in another series'
