Porsche ends 997 GT3 RSR race car development, moving to 991 GT3 RSR
Pretty natural move here with Porsche moving from the 997 to 991 for racing. Will the new 991 be more competitive? Well, it simply has to with BMW and Chevrolet beating up on Porsche in ALMS for the past few years. Not to mention Ferrari will be coming on strong and now Dodge is in the mix with the new Viper. Another piece of news is that the Porsche Flying Lizard ALMS team will no longer be a development partner.
“Flying Lizard Motorsports has assisted in testing everything from new engines and transmissions to the latest aero package we introduced earlier this year – all to improve the car for everyone. We thank Seth and his team for that service, and hope their racing plans going forward continue to include Porsche,” PMNA President Jens Walther stated.
Next season should be very interesting.
