Blending Luxury Cars and High-Performance Experiences for a Partnership that Just Makes Sense.
Park Place Motorsports is the arm of Park Place Porsche and Porsche Grapevine that embodies the racing spirit and pedigree built by the Porsche brand. In 2013, Park Place teamed up with Porsche Motorsports as the official sponsor of a Porsche Motorsports team led by Team Principal, Patrick Lindsey.
As one of DFW’s leading automotive dealers of both the luxury vehicles and high-performance experiences, putting the Park Place name on the track was and still is a natural extension of the Park Place brand.
So, What Is Park Place Motorsports Exactly?
Park Place Motorsports is a professional Porsche race team which not only focuses on professional track performance, but focuses on building a client racing program through driver advancement and trackside support initiatives. So really, a major part of this partnership is to not just to provide you, our clients and Park Place followers, with a team to cheer on during FIA or IMSA events, but also with specific ways to enhance your ownership experiences with professional track expertise and support.
The Race Roster frequently sees updates and changes depending on the challenge ahead, but three consistent faces of Park Place Motorsports include team Principal Patrick Lindsey at the helm, with Patrick Long, an icon in the Porsche space, and Nick Boulle, a Texas resident and prominent member of the Dallas-Fort Worth community.
The partnership between Park Place Dealerships began more than 5 years ago. It’s been a successful past year with multiple podium worthy track weekends and the opening of Park Place’s second Porsche dealership in Grapevine. To top off track success and dealership growth, the Park Place racing team relocated this past year to Dallas after opening a new shop just down the street from Park Place Porsche Dallas.
Porsche Artistry and Intelligent Performance
Park Place Motorsports and Park Place Porsche mirror the utter artistry and intelligence performance embodied by the Porsche brand. The Park Place team currently races the iconic 911 RSR, GT3 R, Cayman GT4, and GT3 Cup in both FIA and IMSA sanctioned competition.
Park Place’s positive reputation and strong relationship with Porsche Cars North America, is key to the success of this relationship.
“Park Place has given us an invaluable relationship that allows the race team to execute at a level of excellence that makes us stand out in the race paddocks,” says Lindsay Lindsey, representative for Park Place Motorsports. “Series, drivers, and teams equate our name with a well-run, well-groomed team. When others compete against us, they know they are racing a tough rival. When a competitor seeks us out to join our team, they know they’re joining a program that will care for them and challenge their skill level.”
A My Place Moment for Patrick Lindsey
The iconic #73 has seen some showroom and service action at both the Dallas and Grapevine dealerships, but what brings this sponsorship full circle is the relationship our Park Place Porsche team members have cultivated with our racing team.
Patrick Lindsey, team Principal, is one of the strongest connections to Park Place, not just because of the name on his racing suit, but also because he’s chosen Park Place Porsche for his day-to-day ownership experiences.
“…. the Park Place team takes extra care in the way they handle client and car service from the moment I hit the service drive to the moment I leave- and even after with their follow up and attention to detail,” says Lindsey, “We have definitely borrowed some valuable lessons from watching the way Park Place Porsche builds corporate pride within its members and the way we do the same within our competitive, professional race team that represents the Park Place namesake.”
