RevoSlot Porsche 993 GT2

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 ever used, aiming to focus more on drivers skill than choice of car or set up.

ThunderSlot cars, founded by Giovanni Montiglio, have proven to be very quick right out of the box. For this one-marque series, cars will run mostly stock with only a few optional parts, this should create a level playing field and fierce competition.
