997 GT3R at California Festival of Speed

Road Race Engineering with driver Alexander Radu racing his 997 Porsche GT3R at the Porsche Club of America, San Diego Region California Festival of Speed at Auto Club Speedway. Helping out with track support and expertise was Bob Faieta and Caden Loftus from Competition Motorsports

This is the 2nd sprint race of the CFOS weekend on Sunday. Dr Alex had a strong start and was running in first place in the GTA class and 2nd place overall to the GT1 Class 996 turbo of Dwain Dement from Vision Motorsports. A late race pass by Daniel Davis in a Turbo Cup Car in the GT1 class dropped Dr Alex to 3rd overall.

The final result was 3rd overall and first place in the GTA class. His best lap time of 1:39.03 in the race was his fastest lap for the three day weekend.

The car is a 2013 spec 997 GT3R from Manthey Racing in Germany. It was built to campaign at Nurburgring and endurance races. This was the first race in the United States for the GT3R. Dr Alex is familiar to our Mitsubishi customers normally driving the RRE widebody EVO 6.
