How is success achieved? By a show of strength, but only when this is combined with independent thought and actions. Take aluminium and steel, for example. Both materials have been used in the new 911 GT3 Cup for the first time to form a complete bodyshell. New measures have been coupled with new standards. The integral two-mount rescue device, for instance, enables faster vehicle rescue, which also reduces the risk of further damage. This is combined with a newly developed rescue hatch for the occupants to be extracted safely from the vehicle.
Our objective was to develop the best working environment possible for the most important factor in motorsport – the driver. The cockpit of the 911 GT3 Cup has therefore been refined, both functionally and formally. After all, ergonomics plays a crucial role in motor racing, too. It is a principle exemplified by a new generation of seats with fore/aft adjustment which meet all current FIA requirements, and by the racing steering wheel, which adjusts for height and reach. The most important functions are assigned to switches and are intuitive to select: from the windscreen wipers, main beam, communications radio, power locking and alarm reset to neutral and reverse gear. The switch panel on the steering wheel has a matt carbon-weave finish.
