Action at the Nurburgring has been frantic these past years. First we had the Lamborghini Huracan Performante which set a 6:52.01 time back in 2016, then Porsche took back the title in 2017 with a 6:47.25 time, then, in July, Lamborghini announced that it had set a 6:44.97 time with the Lamborghini Aventador LP 770-4 Superveloce Jota. Little surprise then that Porsche have been attempting to take the record back.
Today, Porsche have confirmed that they were able to achieve a faster time for the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. In collaboration with Manthey Racing, the German team have put together a 6:40.33 time, almost 7 seconds faster than in 2017. The time was set by Lars Kern on 25 October 2018, who also set the 2017 time for Porsche.
The Savage is angered by this and has issued a warning to Porsche… so watch this space.
