PORSCHE MOTORSPORTS NORTH AMERICA DESIGNATES STARRETT AS OFFICIAL SUPPLIER FOR PRECISION MEASUREMENT TECHNOLOGIES

ORLANDO, Fla. -- December 9, 2010 - Today, at the 2010 Performance Racing Industry Show, Porsche Motorsports North America (PMNA) and The L.S. Starrett Company announced that the companies have entered into a partnership agreement designating Starrett the official supplier of PMNA for precision measurement technologies.

This is the first partnership of this type that PMNA has entered into in many years. Under the agreement, Starrett will supply the Porsche team with precision measuring tools to provide a wide variety of technical procedures to inspect and evaluate Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars.

In addition to providing precision measuring tools from the Company's broad offering, Starrett will continue to develop custom-engineered measuring solutions to meet PMNA's special requirements. With a half century of experience creating innovative custom solutions, a unique approach to a measurement application developed by Starrett may well give PMNA an advantage in their fiercely competitive sport.

"In performance motorsports, Porsche has long been the standard by which others are measured," said Hardy Hamann, Starrett Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. "Similarly, Starrett is a leader in precision measuring tools and has been for well over a century." Hamann continued. "This partnership between our two companies is a perfect match."

"With such close tolerances engineered into the components of our race cars, and precise measurements needed to extract the top performance from both the chassis and drive train, Porsche Motorsports North America is pleased to forge this partnership with L.S. Starrett Company for use of their tools and measurement devices for our racing effort," said Jens Walther, president of Porsche Motorsports North America, Inc.
