Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport To Get Its Own One-Make Race Series

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport will get its own one-make racing series, with the first race scheduled for the weekend of the 24 Hours of Spa on July 26-27.

Porsche made the announcement shortly after racing veteran Mark Webber drove the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport at the Bathurst 12 Hour race in what was its first public demonstration run.

SportsCar365 reports that the Porsche-exclusive race at Spa will be a prelude to the introduction of a new GT2 category launched by SRO Motorsport Group. The new GT2 formula is expected to feature in the Blancpain GT Sports Club and will race alongside the existing GT3 class in Europe, America, and Asia.

“The GT2 concept is very important to SRO and I am thrilled to see it gathering momentum,” SRO founder and chief executive Stephane Ratel said.

“The one-make race for the GT2 Clubsport that will be staged during the Total 24 Hours of Spa weekend will represent another major milestone as we prepare to introduce the category to our series across the world. I look forward to more exciting news on this as the year unfolds.”

At least six brands have expressed interest in the GT2 category, but Porsche is the only manufacturer so far to have actually launched such a car.

Porsche intends on capping production of the GT2 RS Clubsport to 200 units. It is powered by the 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six of the road car, pumping out an identical 690 hp. Changes over the street legal version include a rigidly-mounted seven-speed dual clutch transmission, new aluminum brake calipers, a stripped-out cabin and various aerodynamic enhancements.
