    Thanks Mate: nice finging

    Re: 997GT3 RS+Gallardo Super Legera+Alain Prost

    Good find!

    Again a statement that the Porsche is aged by now and not competitive any more.

    although is a nice car it's struggling a lot to keep the pace. Just have a look at what is happening all around the GT2 and GT3 FIA championship...

    I've on the other side noticed something he didn't mention: brakes. After a lap or two with the superleggera the brake pedal gets substantially long.
    What does it happen with the GT3RS?

    Re: 997GT3 RS+Gallardo Super Legera+Alain Prost

    A very interesting appraisal. Thank you for posting.

    You would think that "le professeur" would choose his words more carefully to avoid the risk of uncharitable readers responding that he is "aged by now and not competitive any more"!
    Maybe he still hasn't got over the fact that Lauda got to be World Champion instead of him in 1984 when they both drove for McLaren using the Porsche F1 engine.

    Alain Prost had a well-deserved reputation in F1 for getting the maximum out of a car whilst treating it very gently. Maybe in his hands (okay, "feet" ) the pedal free-travel did not get to be so long.

    But your observation is quite correct: The Superleggera, in spite of being 100kg lighter than standard Gallardo (and in spite of Lambo's, um, "optimistic" published weight figures ), is still a pretty heavy car - and it also does not have such good brake cooling as the GT3.

    The GT3RS brakes will last.

    "Concerned" is not the word you might be inclined to use when your Superleggera is leaning against the Armco.
