NEWS: Chris Harris PPG 911 Dog Gearbox Rave Review

Our Road Magazine & Blog PR gurus, Royle Media ( just released this press release on Pfitzner Performance Gearboxes Porsche 911 five-speed dog gear set geting a rave review by Drive TV and Pistonheads car hack demi-God and fellow rally fan, Chris Harris:
Esteemed British motoring journalist of Drive TV and, Chris Harris, has proclaimed the Pfitzner Performance Gearboxes (PPG) five-speed, straight cut dog gearbox in the Tuthill Porsche 911 as “sensational… a thing of joy.” Chris Harris was testing the Francis Tuthill Porsche 911 rally car at the Prodrive Test Facility, Warwickshire for Drive TV and said: “The (PPG) dog gearbox is sensational. The gearbox is a thing of joy.” Talking about the drive, Chris added: “It’s just a collection of great noises, like the dog gearbox whine… this is where it is at… this is my kind of driving.”
The incredible 350bhp, 3.5-litre flat-six, 1,000Kg, historic rally Tuthill Porsche 911 uses a Pfitzner Performance Gearboxes straight cut, five speed, dog tooth gear set, using billet selectors and PPG’s “Heavy Duty” gears made with the world-renowned PPG “Bulletproof” design.
The wide arch 911 was built by Richard Tuthill of Tuthill Porsche (, who are agents for the 911 gear set and supplied testing and development of the gear set), to rally in the Belgian Historic Rally Championship (BRC-H) and was described by Chris Harris as “a ridiculous bit of kit!” Richard Tuthill said: “The Belgian stages are very unique. There’s a lot of very square junctions… so you need to brake late into them and get out of them quick. This 911 does that beautifully and we can beat the Belgians with this car easily.” And a lot of that speed – and the car’s podiums already – is down to the incredibly efficient, fast, tough and reliable PPG dog gearbox – perfect for the Tuthill 911, and Chris Harris.
