The "stock" 997 GT3 RS at the 'Ring

This is the 997 GT3 RS street car that Porsche is racing at the 24 Hours of the Nürburgring in May and that had it's debut at the VLN race last week. At that race the car finished and placed 22nd overall.

It's not quite stock, it has different springs and has a re-calibrated traction control and obviously a cage and no passenger seat

Driving in the video is "Uncle" Walter Röhrl driving. Hi co-drivers will be Nürburgring specialist Horst Von Saurma and journalist Chris Harris from EVO.



  1. Harris wrote blog post about the race at http://community.evo.co.uk/users/Monkey-Harris/blogs/index.cfm/2010/3/30/VLN-Race-One-in-the-997-GT3-RS-with-Walter-Rohrl

  2. Glad to see uncle Walter endorse the method of "chicken" shortshifting as the most effective means of torque at wheels traction control device by attacking most of the Norscheleife in the wer 1 or 2 gears from what he should in the dry and only redlining gears in the straights.
