After scoring its first victory at Lime Rock and second place at Road America, the race car now faces another difficult challenge against the strong competition in North America’s premier sports car series. In the qualifying on the tradition-steeped 5.263-kilometre racetrack close to Danville in the US state of Virginia, Laurens Vanthoor (Belgium) clocked the eighth fastest time in the #912 Porsche 911 RSR. His teammate is Gianmaria Bruni (Italy). In the second 911 RSR fielded by the Porsche GT Team, Dirk Werner (Germany) occupies the ninth grid spot with the #911 car. With Patrick Pilet (France), he scored the maiden victory for the GT racer on 22 July, which had been designed from scratch by Porsche Motorsport in Weissach.
