The Porsche GT2 RS MR is the fastest road car on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, and my experience of a hot lap tells me exactly why! Blasting from bridge to gantry in a mere 6:55.5 with Tim Morley at the wheel of Robert Mitchell's Manthey Racing Porsche, it's quite something to behold.
During the Manthey Racing Trackday hosted on the Green Hell we are surrounded by incredible Porsches of all descriptions but arguably none more special than the Ring's record holder in the form of a few GT2 RS MRs dotted around, one of which belongs to my friend, Robert Mitchell.
To get an understanding of what exactly this car is, and how it set a full laptime record of 6:40.3, Robert takes a break from his new GRpost channel to show us around and explain through the host of track time focused modifications that Manthey Racing have made to it. From there on though it's into the passenger seat with Tim Morley at the wheel to be shown what it's made of. Tim has covered thousands of Ring laps, including running as a taxi driver, and many at the wheel of this car and as such knows a thing or two. The car itself has pounded round in excess of 500 times and even on this lap it's smooth, comfortable, not bouncing off kerbs but proving a point that this is a serious force to be reckoned with.
Without any shadow of a doubt, it's the fastest lap I've ever experienced at the Nurburgring Nordschleife, and a huge thanks goes to Robert, Tim and the team at Manthey for this opportunity.

Thanks for watching, Tim
