2018 Series – RevoSlot Porsche GT2 Cup Series

Series Manager: Marty.
This series will be raced in the first quarter of 2018 (Q1).

In 1996 if you wanted to go endurance racing in the GT2 class you had two options – race a Porsche 911 GT2 or lose.  The Porsches were that dominate in the mid-90’s that they won just about every GT2 race and every GT2 series.  They were the perfect mix of power, handing and more importantly – durability.  The club is looking for the same level of durability in our RevoSlot Porsche 911 GT2 series.  The rules are the most simple one the club has ever used with the goal of putting the focus more on drivers skill than choice of car or set up.


**** Provisional **** Final Rule-set due 11/06/2017 ****

Series Overview
