Next stop for the 911 RSR in the US is Lime Rock Park.
Fans can look forward to a very special motorsport experience on Saturday out in the countryside: Because there are no grandstands along the circuit, they can follow the action from the grassy hills surrounding the racetrack, equipped with camping chairs and cool boxes. In 2017, spectators were treated to a Porsche festival, with the 911 scoring victory in both the GTLM and the GTD classes. The narrow racetrack features six right-hand corners and just one left-hander.
The cockpit of the 911 RSR No 911 is shared by @piletpatrick and @nicktandyr. This season, the pair won the 12 Hours of Sebring. The Mid-Ohio winners @laurensvanthoor and @earlbamber share driving duties in the second 911 RSR (No 912) fielded by the #PorscheGTTeam in the GTLM class. In the GTD class, the Porsche customer team @wrightrac1ng competes with two 911 GT3 R. Sharing driving duties in the No 58 car are the works driver @plmotorsport and Porsche Selected Driver @christinaracing with the No 16 vehicle manned by #WolfHenzler and #MichaelSchein.
For the second race season, the 911 RSR was optimised primarily in the setup. Depending on the size of the restrictor, the motor, which is positioned in front of the rear axle, puts out around 375 kW (510 hp). The particularly large rear diffuser combined with a top-mounted rear wing provide strong downforce and aerodynamic efficiency. The ca. 368kW (500 hp) 911 GT3 R was designed for worldwide GT3 series on the basis of the 911 GT3 RS production sports car. For 2018, Porsche provides its customer teams with an evo-kit. #porsche#porschenewsroom#porsche911#911rsr#911gt3r #911 #newsroom#motorsport#racing#racinglife#instacar#sportscar#car#racecar#racetrack#sports#adrenaline#porscheraces#imsa#weathertechchampionship#limerock#limerockpark#connecticut#usa
