My name is Joel Godfredson and I, along with my wife Doreen, are the owners of GT Racing. GT Racing started as a way for my father “Hank” to buy a set of race car tires. From there the business grew through the many relationships Hank had in the Porsche racing community. I have been a Porsche enthusiast for most of my life. Doreen and I currently own a 2007 997 Turbo and a 1991 964 that has been converted using GT Racing body panels to a 1974 type RSR. We enjoy many Porsche events including Racing, HPDE, tours and social events. Today, GT Racing is still a family run business, all of our parts are made in the USA, we ship all over the world and we have been serving the Porsche community for over 23 years. We are committed to carry on the tradition of providing great quality Porsche parts for lightweight race and street cars. As I have learned over the years, the best way to realize all of the potential of your car including horsepower, handling and braking is to reduce weight. The other great benefit of using GT Racing parts is to make your car stand out from the crowd and make it your own!
Our online catalog is organized by model. Check out our model sections to guide you in selecting the correct part for your particular application.
We pride ourselves on our customer service. If you have an order or a question, Doreen and I can be contacted via the Contact Us tab on this site. Or, please feel free to call us at (719) 667-0343 or toll free at (800) 797-2911. We are available Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM MST. Most afternoons we will be at the shop boxing and shipping product so if we don’t answer, please leave a message.
GT Racing is pleased to announce the purchase of European Racing Headers in 2013! European Racing Headers has an outstanding reputation of crafting performance Porsche header and exhaust systems for over 40 years! The team at GT Racing is committed to continue the legacy of “George” by manufacturing the same quality header and exhaust systems that European Racing customers have come to expect.
Good car building to you!!!
Joel and Doreen Godfredson
A word from the former owner of European Racing Headers Wife BJ for “Georges” fans:
My husband George, a Master Header designer for the Porsche 911, 914.6 and 914.4 would be very pleased that his designs will live on through GT Racing. Last year, 2012, he fought a battle with cancer and I lost him in October. He said he could deal with the chemo treatments…..but not being able to crank out those headers for all his customers was devastating to him.
George was born in Lausanne, Switzerland and grew up in the San Fernando Valley in Calif. He also loved doing custom dual exhaust systems on the older cars.
He loved what he did…..and it had to be right. He listened to his customers and made a fine product of which he never got returns. I have received many calls from customers wanting his headers and I have learned just how much he was thought of in his industry. I am so pleased to say that the GT Racing team of Joel, Doreen, Dan and Amy will be carrying on George’s designs of many, many years.
BJ, George’s wife
