Regular Trackday Maintenance

Porsche Cayman GT4 with Martini Livery

This Cayman GT4 is heavily tracked. With the right and regular maintenance, this car stays in good condition.

While it's difficult for most car owners to maintain their car's regularly, some car owners use their cars differently as with this Porsche Cayman GT4. This Porsche hits the track usually 2-3 times per month and as a result requires more then just a wash to maintain its condition.

Before taking his car to the track, the owner engaged Project Detail to fully wrap the entire vehicle with Xpel Ultimate Paint Protection Film (PPF). This allowed the car complete protection and gave it the strongest protection available for track use. Find out more about our PPF services by clicking here.

While daily driving presents all sorts of challenges for keeping a car clean such as traffic film/road grime, bugs, tar or regular dust, tracking a car is a level above. With burning rubber hitting your car and building up on your own wheels and body, rocks hitting your car at very high speeds and other debris striking your car beyond the norm. This GT4 was a good example, as it was heavily soiled when it arrived.

Heavy Tar, burnt rubber and bugs riddle the surface of this Porsche Cayman GT4.

Because of the build up, maintaining a track car is often beyond a normal wash. We had to use a mixture of chemicals and solvents which are safe for the PPF material while effectively removing the debris.

Project Detail utilises a 21 Stage Wash & Decontamination in order to provide safe and excellent results whenever we wash a vehicle. In this instance, additional stages were introduced.

In order to cleanse the surface deeply, we have sprayed an Iron Fallout Remover on the surface. This gently cleanses and breaks down brake dust and other ferrous particles.

Once we have removed any contamination safely, we generally foam wash a vehicle once or twice depending on the level of grime and grit present. Our foam is combined with our hot water pressure washer which can heat water up to boiling temperature, this allows safe and more effective cleaning.

Foam washing is an effective wash to break down and remove the majority of grit and dirt without any friction which in turn causes swirls and scratches.
