First Impressions of new Porsche GT3 Cup type 991 for GT3CCME participants
With the GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East on summer break and the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup under way the Lechner Racing team already started the preparations for the upcoming fifth season of the most successful GT championship in the Middle East.
For that reason founder and promoter Walter Lechner invited some participants of the GT3CCME that were on a trip through Europe to a special promotion event to the Formula 1 track Hungaroring near Budapest on 3 & 4 June 2013.
With a brand new Porsche GT3 Cup car type 991 available on site the invitation was gladly accepted.
At first, there was a general introduction to the new car by one of the racing engineers with a lot of questions concerning the innovations of the new car on Monday. The second day was then used by the drivers for a first taste of the 991 during some laps around the F1 circuit.
The new Porsche GT3 Cup type 991 will see its introduction to the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East in the fifth season starting end of 2013, as the first international Porsche one-make series worldwide following the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
