The Nürburgring and Nordschleife. Racetrack myth. Motorsport legend. And for us, a circuit of particular significance. We've always been mesmerised by its mystical, often wet and mist-shrouded Eifel forests, where we've made history.
With Stefan Belloff, for example, who once completed the fastest lap of the Nordschleife ever recorded in his Porsche 956: 6:11.13 minutes. Or Marc Lieb, who in 2013 set the record for a road-approved series produced carin a Porsche 918 Spyder, with a lap time of 6:57 minutes.
This year, we're once again ready. We aim to conquer the Nordschleife. With our new 911 GT3 R in Germany's toughest endurance race: the 24h of Nürburgring. Over an entire 24,358 kilometres per lap, teams and drivers have to push themselves to their absolute limits. Day and night. Because even the annual visiting fans know that it's not enough to simply compete in the "Green Hell". You have to conquer it.
We are ready for the Nordschleife. In large formation: in order to survive this merciless 24h endurance test, eight of our successful international works drivers will rise to the challenge. With four drivers per car. Including Le Mans winners, Earl Bamber and Nick Tandy. Because even though 24h in the Green Hell may seem like an eternity – we'll fight for every hundredth of a second.
Our model on the starting grid: the new Porsche 911 GT3 R. A thoroughbred race car with a water cooled six-cylinder Boxer engine producing over 500 hp. Developed from the seventh generation of the iconic Porsche 911 sports car. The design of our two race cars: extremely honed. Because those who want to be hunted shouldn't conceal themselves. The 911 GT3 R with start number 911 features fluorescent yellow design elements. Fluorescent green adorns the 911 GT3 R bearing number 912. And they'll fight for 24h. Be it in the rain, wind or fog.
The weather on the Nordschleife is unpredictable. It follows its own rules. And only rarely shows any mercy. Your personal desktop background lets you decide which conditions the 911 GT3 R will face on the track.
