Guest Speaker:  Henry Costa – Owner of Refined Motorsports
Henry moved from his native Portugal to Germany in the early 1960’s. Knowing enough German to get by, Henry trained at the Porsche factory in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen and worked in Porsche’s factory repair shop from 1965 to 1972. He worked on various 356 models and the first 911s, and his job was to fix recurring problems in the cars by making changes to the assembly process so problems were solved once and for all on the production line. Henry also had further Porsche training throughout the world and immigrated to Canada where he worked as the head Porsche technician at Downtown Fine Cars for almost 20 years. Since then Henry has owned his own Porsche repair shop in Toronto. Henry is a long time UCR member and advertiser in Provinz.

Karl joined UCR in 1991 and a short time later began his motorsports adventure as a student in UCR’s driver education program in 1994 with his 944 Turbo; and when he became an instructor he was one of the youngest ever in PCA. He progressed through PCA Club Racing and in 2003 formed C360R, a professional motorsports operation that prepares and races cars in sportscar series in North America. This multiple championship-winning team has fielded cars in IMSA’s WeatherTech Championship, the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the Pirelli World Challenge, Canadian Touring Car and PCA.

As a team owner, he has had drivers win over 50 races and five professional sportscar championships between them. Beyond that, C360R has won ten Manufacturer’s championships with their automotive partners.
