First pole position for the new 911 RSR

Premiere for the new Porsche 911 RSR: The racing car takes up Sunday’s race in Canada for the first time from pole position. In qualifying for the sixth round of the IMSA SportsCar Championship contested in the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park Dirk Werner set the fastest time in the GTLM class with the 911 RSR.

His teammate in the race is Patrick Pilet (France). Porsche’s strong performance on the 3.957-kilometre high-speed circuit was rounded off by the sister 911 RSR fielded by the Porsche GT Team, with Laurens Vanthoor (Belgium) claiming the third grid spot less than two-tenths of a second off the pole-setting time. For the race, he is joined in the #912 cockpit by Gianmaria Bruni (Italy). The qualifying on the former Mosport International Raceway was again fiercely contested: only eighth-tenths of a second separated the eight starters in the GTLM class. This promises to be yet another gripping race for the fans.
