Cass Whitehead, the head instructor at Porsche’s Sport Driving School, estimates that he has done 50,000 laps of Barber Motorsports Park. Just for perspective, if we take the total number of laps Derek Bell has completed at 26 appearances at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, you get a figure of 7,642 laps. To call Mr. Whitehead experienced with Barber is an understatement. This makes him the perfect person to demonstrate a “perfect” lap of the track in a GT3 RS.
This video was filmed at the Porsche Sport Driving School using the RS variant of the outgoing GT3. At this time the recently launched GT3 does not yet have an RS variant. That said, Mr. Whitehead describes the GT3 RS as one of the greatest road cars ever made. After seeing his perfect lap in the “old” RS, we’re extremely excited for the new one. Need we remind you that the new non-RS GT3 is still hilariously fast?
