Porsche RS Spyder Prototype laps Bathurst - video

1,056 views

Previously a dominant force in endurance races in North America during the 2006 and 2007 seasons, the iconic yellow and red Porsche RS Spyder undertook a new challenge this October: Mount Panorama, Bathurst. This 2006 American Le Mans Series LMP2-winning Porsche, the first ever RS Spyder in competition, completed demonstration laps at the world famous Bathurst track driven by Dutch sports car ace - and 2008 Le Mans class-winner in an RS Spyder - Jeroen Bleekemolen.

Best known for its success in the American Le Mans Series against its more powerful LMP1 rivals, the development of the 480 hp (353 kW) RS Spyder prototype was the first new project built by Porsche exclusively for racing since its successful 1998 24 Hours of Le Mans campaign with the Porsche 911 GT1.

Sadly there is no official word on what laptime was achieved...
