Porsche’s new 911 GT2 RS Clubsport will make its race debut in a one-off GT2 event at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. The event will run exclusively with Porsche models.
On both the Friday and Saturday of the Spa 24-hour series, a 15-strong field of international private drivers will contest a 30-minute race around the 7,004km (4,352 miles) Ardennes circuit. The German manufacturer’s 935 road car will also make its race debut at the event.
“The Spa 24-hour race is the perfect stage for the race debut of these spectacular GT2 models. Both vehicles can be fielded at Clubsport level and at selected motorsport events,” said Fritz Enzinger, VP of Porsche Motorsport. “We’re currently involved in fruitful discussions for the coming year.”
The 700hp racing version of the road-legal 911 GT2 RS sports car is limited to 200 units. The racing car shares the same powerplant as its road-going cousin: a state-of-the-art 3.8-liter six-cylinder twin-turbo boxer engine.
