ProCharger celebrates their 25th anniversary
ProCharger celebrates in style a quarter century of innovation at Sonoma Raceway
ProCharger turns 25 this year. That number seems all the more amazing when you consider their dominance within the high performance supercharging market. With innovative products for a wide array of needs, that they are only 25 years old may be the biggest news here. To celebrate their birthday they threw a party at Sonoma Raceway and invited a few friends.
Said Ken Jones, President of ProCharger, "We are especially happy to have all of you in attendance to celebrate our 25th year in business. We have grown immensely in the last 25 years and it is great to be able to host an event for our customers, dealers, and media members. We have a great story to tell and you have all helped us get to where we are today."
Testament to the strength of the brand, despite a poor weather forecast, was the impressive number of racers who brought some of their coolest ProCharger-equipped vehicles from around the area. In addition, editors from major automotive magazines were also in attendance, talking with racers and learning about the latest ProCharger products. For those looking for a wild ride, a Mustang and Camaro were each fitted with ProCharger products and a professional driver took attendees for a run around the wet, but still legendary, "Sears Point" Sonoma Raceway; one that most will certainly not soon forget.
For Ford fans, the highlight of the show was the road race 2019 Mustang of Haro Derkrikorian of Bojix Design. Proving that the fourth time is the charm (his fourth Mustang build), the highly modified Mustang sported a full on ProCharger system and an assortment of innovative suspension and interior modifications. Watch for a full feature on his Mustang in an upcoming issue of MM&FF.
On display at the ProCharger tent were a full assortment of their latest products along with a technical staff that was ready to explain, in detail, recent refinements and other highlights. It was there that we learned about the recoding of the ProCharger product line, D and P designations limited to street-bound performance and the F-series the exclusive domain of the racing superchargers. As ProCharger fans will know, the letter and number code (i.e. F-3, F-1, etc.) refers to the gear case size and strength. The following letter denotes the housing size and the final three digits, the mm diameter dimensions of the air inlet. See what you can learn on a rainy day.
While the diverse line of race cars in attendance never had a chance to turn a tire, it did leave lots of time to talk and bench race about competition and, most definitely, relate the experiences of the customers. To celebrate in style, an impromptu ProCharger "cackle-fest" loudly proclaimed the presence of big horsepower in the house as all attendees started their cars and revved their engines. No doubt that the deafening roar of engines matched the loud statement that ProCharger has made within the aftermarket supercharger market.
And clearly there is more to come.
