Brands Hatch. The brand new Porsche 911 GT1 clinched a convincing second victory in only its second outing at the International Four Hours Race at Brands Hatch. After a cautios start Porsche worksdriver, Hans-Joachim Stuck had taken over the lead in the third of 166 laps. Until the finish Stuck and his team mate Thierry Boutsen from Belgium opened a gap of more than one lap to the fastest competitors.

"The GT1 ran like a clockwork,we had no problem at all apart from lapping a lot of other cars. The whole team did an absolutely perfect job." said a delighted Hans-Joachim Stuck after the race.

The new Porsche 911 GT1, which had already impressively won the 24 Hours Race at Le Mans, turned out to be a winner at its premiere in the Inter- national GT Challange "BPR" as well: high carat competitors like Ferrari, McLaren-BMW, Jaguar, Chevrolet, Crysler and Lotus had no chance to take the lead from the racing car from the Porsche R&D Center at Weissach, throughout the race.
