THE PORSCHE 911 GT2 RS CLUBSPORT GETS AN EVO-KIT TO FURTHER ENHANCE ITS TRACK CAPABILITIES
Porsche Motorsport has just unveiled a new evo-kit for the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport to give even more of an advantage in clubsport events, track days, and GT2 racing series. It’s great to see the automaker still doing research and development on a car that’s been out in the world for a couple of years already. It’s like they want current owners and race teams to win races or something. This update features optimised aerodynamics, redesigned 18-inch wheels, modified shock absorbers, and improved safety features. The new configuration focuses on increasing aerodynamic efficiency and ensuring consistent performance over longer distances. The new package recently debuted at the European Fanatec GT2 series in Monza, Italy. The SRO championship includes six race weekends, each featuring two races that run for about 50 minutes. The new apron with modified air intakes for brake cooling and the diffuser, a centrally-mounted radiator at the front, and a redesigned front splitter generates more downforce on the front axle. The new and higher Gurney flap on the rear wing and the broader front and rear fenders further improve the aerodynamic balance.
The evo-kit also includes newly designed side sills that enhance the car's visual appeal and create a harmonious flow between the wheels while helping with downforce. Significantly larger air outlets in the rear apron provide more efficient ventilation of the rear brakes and engine compartment, reducing the thermal load on the components, especially at high-temperature events. The redesigned 12-inch rims on the front axle and 13-inch rims at the rear offer more space for wider tyres - and that means more crip, and more grip means more speed. The new shock absorber setup also helps reduce tyre wear during the race and facilitates consistently fast lap times. Very handy when you’re entered in an enduro race. There’s also an SRO package available that includes a quick-fill fuel system and reinforced side impact padding. The new rain lights also comply with the requirements of the FIA. “With the introduction of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport back in 2019, Porsche was one of the trailblazers in the revival of the GT2 class in motorsport,” explains Michael Dreiser, Director Sales Porsche Motorsport. “We still see positive development in this category and want to give our customers the means to continue competing at the top of the GT2 sector with the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport evo-kit.”
Take a look at the YouTube video from a while back when Porsche test driver, Lars Kern, took the Porsche 911 GT2 RS with the Manthey Performance Kit around the iconic Nürburgring circuit resulting in a lap record for the car. This gives you an idea of how amazing the car already is, and so the above kit should sharpen up the car just that little bit more to make it even quicker: Nürburgring Lap Record: On Board the 911 GT2 RS | Porsche
