The track version of the legendary sports coupe goes to a new level. The first race will take place on July 26-27, 2019 during the weekend of Total 24 Hours of Spa.

Porsche made a statement about the creation of a racing series immediately after the famous racer Mark Webber for the first time showed the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport on the race track in official competitions. A public demonstration was held as part of the Bathurst 12 Hour race.

The Total 24 Hours of Spa’s own orsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport series will be a prelude to the announcement of the new GT2 category created by the SRO Motorsport Group. It is expected that the new category will be presented in the sports club Blancpain GT and will compete with the existing GT3 class in Europe, America and Asia.

“The GT2 concept is very important for an SRO, and I am very happy to see that it is gaining momentum,” said the founder of the SRO and CEO Stephane Ratel. “The single player race for GT2 Clubsport, which will be held during the weekend of Total 24 Hours of Spa, will be another important milestone as we prepare to present this category in our series around the world.” Added Stephane.

At least six brands have shown interest in the GT2 category, but Porsche is still the only manufacturer that has already released such a car. However, Porsche intends to limit production of the GT2 RS Clubsport to 200 units.

Under the hood is a 3.8-liter biturbo engine for 690 horsepower.
