911 Road Trip

The FIA drove from Porsche GB headquarters in Reading to the home of the German manufacturer in Stuttgart. ...

Each of the manufacturers involved in the FIA World Endurance Championship build sports cars to sell to the public. Some are built to a lightweight specification, with weight savings for better acceleration and performance, but without many luxury items – essentially a road going race car. Others are built as the perfect Grand Tourers, with all the latest luxury items and space for luggage that make driving long distances a pleasure but blunt the performance due to the extra weight.  

However there are some sports cars that provide luxury and mind blowing performance, with the latest incarnation of the Porsche 911 Turbo S Coupe reportedly being one of those ultimate GT cars.  

To put this to the test the FIA drove the 980km from Porsche GB headquarters in Reading across the Channel to the home of the German manufacturer in Stuttgart to take the 911 Turbo S to see where the cars that race with the FIA World Endurance Championship are built and prepared.

Turbulences in Watkins Glen

The Six Hours of the Glen is one of the most difficult races in the Tudor United SportsCar Championship calendar. ...

Starting tenth, the 911 RSR with works drivers Nick Tandy (Great Britain) and Richard Lietz (Austria) was seventh as a caution flew with 10-minutes remaining. Entering the last corner, several cars made contact ahead of Nick Tandy, who became a father for the first time on Friday. But he kept a clear head through the chaos to move to fifth at the checkered flag.

The 911 RSR shared by Michael Christensen (Denmark), Patrick Long (USA) and Patrick Pilet (France) had a less dramatic day. Driving the 911 RSR of Team Falken Tire, Wolf Henzler (Germany) and Bryan Sellers (USA) ran in the top-three early in the day but eventually finished in ninth position.

In the GTD class, John Potter (USA), Andy Lally (USA) and Sebastian Asch (Germany) took third place driving the Porsche 911 GT America entered by Magnus Racing. It was the team’s third podium finish in five races. The Dempsey Racing Porsche 911 GT America of Patrick Dempsey (USA), Andrew Davis (USA) and Joe Foster (USA) finished in fourth place. It was their best finish of the season.
