What we Do

Aircooled Racing has been building and racing Porsche cars for over three decades. Located in Wellsville, PA, we provide race car prep, arrive & drive, maintenance, parts, and track support services.


About Aircooled RacingAircooled Racing is Steve Limbert and Derek Sweger. Together, Steve and Derek have over 50 years of racing and automotive knowledge, specializing in aircooled Porsches.

Aircooled Racing has over four decades building and racing Porsche cars for various sanctioning bodies (SCCA, Porsche Club and Vintage Groups). We currently compete in several Vintage races, mainly in the Northeast but still venture to the likes of Sebring, Daytona and Road America to name a few. Aircooled Racing is not just exclusively Porsches; we are more than happy to accomodate your BMW, MG, Austin, or even your Dodge Dart. Call Aircooled to discuss our Arrive & Drive, track support, storage, and maintenance offerings.

We have built several turn key 914’s, both with 4 or 6 cylinder power as well as 911s with various size engines. Custom roll cages along with Vintage Roll bars are our speciality. We support our customers with an “arrive & drive” in their cars as well as providing a rental 911.

Major and minor rust repairs on all Porsche models from 356, 914 early 911s and now some of the newer 1980s cars (while the Brits may have invented rust, the Germans perfected the process).

For many years we have been selling “race stuff” (helmets, uniforms, oil coolers,carburetors, Oberg oil filters, custom axle straps, mechanical chain tensioners, etc. We’ve also added Brad Penn race oil to our ever-growing list of what we sell.

Most recently, we have become the North American importer of the Original Minilite Racing wheels, not only for Porsche cars (in sizes we stock) but most other race and street cars.
