Incredible lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife that I did with the very talented Porsche factory race driver Le Mans winner Kevin Estre, in the new Porsche Weissach 991.2 GT3 RS. Identical car used by Kevin on his record n/a 6:56 lap, with suspension set up for the Nordschleife by the race team, however the car on this day was fitted with the standard Cup N2 tyres, not the faster Cup R tyres as used on the record lap.
This car was loaned for the day by the Porsche factory to raise money for @dusportetplus charity at the Manthey Racing trackday. Stability control was switched off during the lap, but traction control was left on to save rear tyre wear.
After Flugplatz we hit a top speed of 275km/h 171mph - some 3km/h faster at the same point than his record 6:56 lap.
Thanks to Kevin for organising and the amazing driving!

      This was approximately a 7:05 BTG lap! Including 5 overtakes and short shifting in a couple of places for noise.

      @Andrew Hurst Looks pretty scary to me. I just bottle out as I get closer to the limit on fast corners in my own car. I have neither a death nor car destruction wish :) Very nice drive. Mega experience. Thanks for the posting.

      @mt o7 What more serious helmet than a Stilo do you want ? It aint convertible , open face helmet with a pedigree is enough .

      Without the short shifts and the traffic I'd say that lap was good for about at 48-46

      I'd also tell him that's good that you chose a open face helmet that way if we crash when you die it's going to be quick.

      I love how he kept taking his hand off the wheel and looking at the guy making him nervous and then he was like yeah yeah whatever you say just put your hand back on the wheel and pay attention coming to a corner that you'll never remember the name of it and if you look off to our right classic

      Just yesterday he drove the worlds fastest lawnmower under the Blistein bridge. Then gave the honor for the final lap to Dries so the brothers can go up the podium together. Truly the most graceful race driver I've seen

      is it normal to use your left foot to brake on a track?

    • Kevin C
      Kevin C In reply to Yoel Badi

      Yes, since you’ll be working both the accelerator and brakes often and within milliseconds of each other. Basically, it’s more efficient than switching your foot over back and forth.
