Performance Electronics 600cc Non-Wing World Championship Update!

The 3rd Annual Performance Electronics 600cc Non-Wing World Championship has been rescheduled for July 15-18, 2020. Circus City Speedway will operate at full capacity, allowing them to lift the cap of 120 entries.

The Performance Electronics 600cc Non-Wing World Championship has become a marquee event among micro sprint racers in just a short time. Over 100 drivers competed in both the inaugural event as well the 2nd edition. The 2nd Annual Performance Electronics Non-Wing World Championship was the largest single class outdoor micro sprint event of 2019. Over 100 drivers are expected to compete again in 2020.

A grueling 50 lap main event against the treacherous curb made for an exciting event in 2019. Delaware’s Kyle Spence was able to capitalize on a mistake made by Oklahoma’s Trey Robb and drive to a convincing victory over Pennsylvania’s Brian Carber, the 2018 champion. Rounding out the top 3 with an incredible drive was Oklahoma’s Chris Cochran, who worked his way from a D-Qualifier all the way to the podium in the World Championship Main Event.

SPEED SPORT will capture all of the action as the world’s best micro sprint drivers battle for the $10,000 top prize on the 1/8 bullring located at the Miami County Fairgrounds in Peru, Indiana. A one hour tape delayed broadcast of the event will air mid-summer (date TBA) on primetime television via the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Performance Electronics’ PE3 fuel injection and ignition engine control unit has been adopted by SCCA Enterprises for their new Spec Racer® Ford GEN3 engine.

Performance Electronics’ PE3 fuel injection and ignition engine control unit (ECU), has been adopted by SCCA Enterprises for their new Spec Racer® Ford GEN3 engine. The GEN3 engine is the newest development for the historic Spec Racer® Ford (SRF) vehicle. Manufactured by SCCA Enterprises, the SRF is an enclosed wheel, open cockpit, purpose-built race car. With almost 900 cars delivered over the last 30 years, the SRF is the largest purpose-built racing car class in the United States. Slated for full adoption this year, the new GEN3 engine package boasts many performance enhancements including the PE3 ECU.

While racers are often looking to gain a competitive edge using stand-alone ECUs to realize peak performance, this new relationship with SCCA Enterprises uses the PE3 technology to actually level the playing field. The SRF rules dictate that no performance enhancing modifications, other than suspension adjustments within described parameters, can be made to the car. Therefore all tuning with the PE3 ECU is performed by the factory. All GEN3 engines are tuned for optimal performance using the PE3, and are then sealed to prevent any future modifications, ensuring all cars are the same. With this standardization, what keeps a team competitive in the SRF class is their driver’s ability during a competition, not the ability of the team to fund investments in never-ending design enhancements.

Brian Lewis, co-founder of Performance Electronics, is excited about the relationship with SCCA Enterprises. “This relationship has been beneficial to both companies. The PE3 series of high performance, budget-minded control units is a particularly good fit for Spec Racing. Our ability to support and customize control units means Performance Electronics is
well suited to supply to both sanctioning bodies and individuals alike. We’re anxious to see the first GEN3 National Champion crowned later this year.”

Erik Skirmants, President and CEO of SCCA Enterprises, echoes that sentiment. “We considered many ECU options for our critical GEN3 program. In the end, Performance Electronics was the only partner who met product requirements, was able to work with us for optimization of the system, and also met cost targets. PE’s tendencies towards high quality, quick
response and aggressive development, matched our style perfectly.”

Peru, Indiana (March 5, 2018) – Performance Electronics, an engineering company specializing in the design and manufacture of embedded electronic control systems for use in various industries will serve as the title sponsor of the Inaugural 600cc Non-Wing World Championship. The Performance Electronics 600cc Non-Wing World Championship boasts and incredible $40,000 purse to be spread

Performance Electronics’ PE3 named new engine control unit for the Formula 2000 Championship Racing Series.

Performance Electronics’ PE3 fuel injection and ignition engine control unit (ECU), has been adopted by the Formula 2000 (F2000) SCCA Pro Racing series. The F2000 Championship Series is a North American-based open wheel road racing series. Most F2000 series cars are powered by a 2.0L Ford Zetec engine capable of 155 horsepower and speeds up to 145 mph. The series boasts distinguished alumni including Dan Weldon, Paul Tracy and Sam Hornish Jr.

While racers are often looking to gain a competitive edge using stand-alone ECUs to realize peak performance, this new relationship with the F2000 series uses the PE3 technology to actually level the playing field, at least as far as engine performance is concerned. Although F2000 is a formula, not spec series, and some modifications are permitted, the engine tune is not one of them. All F2000 engines are tuned for optimal performance using the PE3 by the engine builder and then provided to the competitors. All competitors must use the ECU map provided by the
Series. This type of standardization helps to keep costs in check. Teams are encouraged to try and build a better race car, but can save their design enhancement dollars for elsewhere.

Performance Electronics is now the vendor of choice for a few different racing series. Brian Lewis, co-founder of Performance Electronics, is excited about this new opportunity for his company. “The PE3 series of high performance, budget-minded control units is a particularly good fit for series racing. Our ability to support and customize control units means Performance Electronics is well suited to supply to both sanctioning bodies and individuals alike. We’re anxious to complete the roll out and get all F2000 Championship Series cars running the PE3.” The PE3 which is proudly designed, manufactured and supported in the USA, is replacing the Pectel T2 ECU, which is no longer supported by its United Kingdom based manufacturer.
