Porsche 911 GT2 RS Road America Track Lap Record

Added by AutomotiveUploads
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS has set a new production car lap record at Road America, completing the 4.048 mile road course with its 14 turns and multiple elevation changes in just 2:15,17 minutes. 24 Hours of Daytona and Le Mans class winner David Donohue took to the wheel of the 911 GT2 RS in favorable weather conditions and only needed two laps to do so, underscoring not just the track capability, but also the approachability of the car. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS also recorded an impressive lap time of 2:18,57 minutes at the same track after only a few laps. Once again, both cars took to the track on road-legal and Porsche-approved Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R N0 tires. Racelogic was on-site to record and validate the lap time, vehicle telemetry, and video utilizing the VBOX Video HD2 system.

To help make that time live for you, the Porsche’s average speed around the track checks in around 108 mph. That’s indeed quite impressive, because while the track only has 14 turns, half are tight bends of 90 degrees or more. Furthermore, in its announcement of the achievement, Porsche says that Donohue accomplished the record-setting time after just two laps. The weather conditions were favorable for a solid run, and the GT2 RS was equipped with road-legal Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R N0 tires.

As with Porsche’s previous run at Road Atlanta (which also set a new record), the automaker brought a naturally aspirated 911 GT3 RS along as well. Despite having a power disadvantage of nearly 200 horsepower (149 kilowatts) versus its boosted sibling, the high-revving GT3 RS clocked a Road America lap of 2:18.57 – just under four seconds slower. Yes, that’s an eternity in a race, but with such a gap in power, it further shows the cornering bite that the GT3 RS possesses.
