Porsche reaffirms its dominance in high-performance automotive engineering, as Dimitri Dimakos, a seasoned Porsche Deluxe Carrera Cup North America racer, shatters the Road America track record in the new 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. This feat is even more remarkable when considering the horsepower discrepancy between the 700-hp record-holding 911 GT2 RS and the 518-hp GT3 RS.
Dimakos, using his extensive race experience, navigated the iconic, freshly paved 14-turn Road America circuit in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, in an astonishing 2 minutes, 13.8 seconds, besting the previous record by nearly two seconds. The achievement stands as a testament to the speed and agility of the Type-992 911 GT3 RS, despite the challenging conditions.
This state-of-the-art Porsche comes equipped with a motorsport-based 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine, enabling it to be over 4.5 seconds faster than the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS on the same track. Dimakos’ performance showcased the car’s high-performance Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R N0 road tires, highlighting the 911 GT3 RS’ ability to instill confidence and assure ease of control for drivers of all skill levels.
