2018 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 one the club has ever used with the goal of putting the focus more on drivers skill than choice of car or set up.

2018 Thunder Slot Lola T70 MKIII

The Lola T70 race car, designed by Eric Broadley, was a hit right out of the box, winning the inaugural Can-Am Challenge in 1966. Developed as both a spyder, as well as a coupe, it proved quite versatile, with a large variety of engines, although it was most successful with Chevrolet power. ThunderSlot cars, founded by Giovanni Montiglio, have proven to be very quick right out of the box. For this one-marque series, both spyders and coupes will be allowed, run with stock motors, gears, chassis, motor pods, and guides, and only a few optional parts. This should create a level playing field and create fierce competition. Come join us in what should prove to be a great driver’s series.
