Two new 911 RSR take on Canada’s oldest racetrack

The IMSA SportsCar Championship keeps the revs high for drivers and teams: Just one week after the six-hour classic at Watkins Glen, North America’s premier sports car race series contests its only race in Canada this season at Bowmanville on 9 July.

At the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park not far from the metropolis of Toronto, the Porsche GT Team fields two Porsche 911 RSR in the GTLM class. Traditionally, the competition in this category is particularly tough, guaranteeing action-packed racing from start to finish. Porsche customer teams will campaign three 911 GT3 R in the GTD class.

The 911 RSR is a completely new development and is campaigned by the Porsche GT Team in both the IMSA SportsCar Championship and the Sports Car World Endurance Championship WEC. Depending on the size of the restrictor, the motor, which is now positioned in front of the rear axle, puts out around 375 kW (510 hp). The level of downforce and the aerodynamic efficiency were significantly improved.

The 911 GT3 R, mounted with the new ultra-modern, four-litre, flat-six engine with direct fuel injection, was designed by Porsche for worldwide GT3 series on the basis of the 911 GT3 RS production sports car. The over 368 kW (500 hp) customer sport racer celebrated its first 2017 victory at Daytona.
