    What a race really. This new RSR has all the chances to win this race.

    Never expected the RSR to be this competitive first trip out!

    The ford just took off 5 mins to the end but at least the RSR kept the Ferrari behind, so close...

    Re: Porsche RSR caught testing at Sebring

    What a race for GTLM!

    While the RSR finished 2nd, it made 3 more pit stops than the #66 Ford, makes you wonder what would happened had Porsche made one less?

    GT3R wins the GTD class.

    Good result for Porsche in the first race for the new 911 RSR! Smiley


    Re: Porsche RSR caught testing at Sebring

    Coming in, everyone expects the Fords might sweep the podium with the Ferrari.

    Porsche had other plans haha

    Re: Porsche RSR caught testing at Sebring

    I just tuned in at the finish (after a reminder from Kobalt).  Did all the GT3R and RSR cars finish without engine issues?

    From the onboard camera you could see the Porsche driver got pretty emotional after the checkered flag

    Re: Porsche RSR caught testing at Sebring

    Speechless. What a pace from Porsche compared to last year!


    Re: Porsche RSR caught testing at Sebring

    Ford and Ferrari have turbo engines, Corvettes have a much bigger engine, what a surprise that little NA flat 6 can do.

    FSW and company really know what they are doing that for sure.

    Can't wait to this year's Le Mans.

    At least in the last 3 hours, 911 was clearly faster than all of them, especially Corvette. I think he was sixth, when prepared his final atack...


    Re: Porsche RSR caught testing at Sebring

     If this race is an indication for the year's season I am really looking forward to it… devil


    Re: Porsche RSR caught testing at Sebring

    I suspect tires is stil a problem for the RSR. Pilet probably had to back off the last couple laps after trying to attack for like 10 mins.

    Re: Porsche RSR caught testing at Sebring

    The last 40 min of the race in GTLM kept me right on the edge of my seat, great racing action after the final restart among the top dogs Ford, Ferrari and Corvette.

    The RSR definitely had the pace and gave the leading Ford a great run for its money until, as Whoopsy said, the final 5 min or so, when Pilet had to back off.

    Seems like we are in for a great 2017 season in GTLM/GTE racing! And the GT3 R won in the GTD/GT3 class after a great fight with Audi and Merc-AMG.

     

     

     


    Re: Porsche RSR caught testing at Sebring

    What a race!!!congrats to Pilet that drove the last stint with Number 911,i think he had the last laps without tyres,if not he could win...the car seems really competitive!

    Such beautiful silhouettes, such attractive race cars, until you get to the last one! That 919 is hideous.

     


    Re: Porsche RSR caught testing at Sebring

    a group of friends were there for back up,they r so happy with results


    Re: Porsche RSR caught testing at Sebring

    Just got back from Daytona, what a race!  They really pushed hard that last stint, but couldn't keep pace at the end. If they wet weather had continued, they probably would have taken it easily.  They had one on display at the Porsche booth.

    Re: Porsche RSR caught testing at Sebring

    I'll be happier when I see that they are competitive in a 100% dry race. The Fords are currently out of reach.

    Wonder is the decision of going NA vs Turbo will hurt their chances....
