Porsche 911 RSR Nürburgring Gallery on Facebook

We’ve just added a gallery of images to the EB Motorsport Facebook page. Entitled "Racing Porsche 911 RSR on a wet Nurburgring", it shows what happens when a 300bhp Porsche goes racing around a soaking wet Nurburgring with a bunch of other Historic GT cars. Throw in a wide range of driver confidence and ability and you’ve got a recipe for interesting times.

Scrutineering at the Nürburgring for the two Saturday and Sunday 30-minute Masters races was also very interesting. Talking to other "youngtimer" Porsche owners in the paddock, one was running what looked like a 1974 911 3.0 RS, but with a 3.9-litre engine. Other Porsches on track were running 16" wheels with big brakes, and rear arches re-shaped to run 13" wide rear tyres and 10" or 11" wide front tyres.

Meanwhile, our Light Yellow RSR runs 9-inch and 11-inch Fuchs wheels in 15" diameter (as in the EB Motorsport shop), with period brakes and proper width tyres. Oldtimer scrutineering’s main stipulation was that cars had steel doors. EB Motorsport makes lighter doors for Porsche 911 ready for manual or electric winding windows, but we fit steel doors to our race cars for historic events.

Racing against 911s armed with 30% more engine capacity, and bigger rubber and brakes is a tall order. Nevertheless, Nurburgring rain is a great equaliser and we remained competitive in the rain at the ’Ring.
