business started out of necessity. The first team Brian Copans worked
with needed gear changes done at the track, and being the technician he
was, he started doing the work that was needed. The word spread to the
surrounding Porsche teams in the paddock. Soon the evenings at the track
were spent working on other teams gear changes and gearbox servicing needs.
As many of his teammates moved on to start their own Porsche-tuning businesses
and move up the ranks at other teams, the transmission needs grew. In
1999 Brian, with his wife Pam, opened the BMC&G business, catering
exclusively to Porsche gearbox servicing. For the past 10 years, Brian
has been working on Porsche gearbox overhauls and regearing, doing much
of his work at the track to help customers get through each grueling event.
Wins and championships followed.
past decade in Porsche history has been in the GT ranks. Many 993, 996,
and 997 customer cars have been built by Porsche to compete throughout
the world in numerous customer-based sportscar series. With modern production
techniques that allow these cars to be produced in mass, a growing need
for servicing these cars exists. BMC&G has grown each year with the
new IMSA GT3 series, new teams coming to the ALMS, the ever popular Grand-Am
GT series, and current customers spreading the word about our services.
Through the success of these cars, this has allowed Brian to travel throughout
the world to work with and advise race teams to get the result they desire.
BMC&G works closely with Porsche Motorsport to develop the evolution
of the powertrain. BMC&G has close communication with Porsche via
factory engineers, motorsport technicians, as well as the management staff
of PMNA (Porsche Motorsport North America). This ennsures that every Porsche
customer is getting the best service and products for their on track experience.
All of our development comes from hands-on work with the gearboxes, parts,
drivers, and track conditions. Porsche technical bulletins and new parts
development are a direct result of our experience and knowledge from in-the-field
is one of less than of a handful of people in the world with this experience.
recent years the word has gotten out to customers outside the pro-racing
world. BMC&G now often services gearboxes for vintage race cars, PCA
racers, as well as advising the professional teams. BMC&G has catered
to the specialized needs of Porsche street and race car owners that are
difficult to find at most Porsche independent garages, or Porsche dealerships.
