Red Bull Ring. SSR Performance has set the lap record for street legal vehicles with an optimized Porsche 991.2 GT2 RS on the Red Bull Ring. Michael Ammermüller secured the fastest lap time with a performance of 1:29.106.
The Porsche 991.2 GT2 RS, which was optimized by SSR Performance, is very close to the qualifying pace of the ADAC GT Masters vehicles.
Stefan Schlund, owner of SSR Performance: “We knew that the car would be very fast. However, nobody in the team expected a time of 1:29.106. I am extremely proud and satisfied with the performance of my Munich squad. In addition to our successful stakes in motorsport, we have shown that we can also get the most out of our customers’ road sports cars with precise preparation and coordination. ”
Michael Cap, Head of Motorsports: “We are very happy with the great result of the record time of our Porsche GT2 RS. With our driver Michael Ammermüller behind the wheel, we were able to demonstrate and underline the strong performance of our racing team and our Munich workshop. ”
Michael Ammermüller, SSR Performance driver: “I was very surprised when I saw the lap time, which almost corresponds to the one of the ADAC GT Master’s vehicle. I didn’t think that we would bring such a performance onto the track with a road car. With our GT2 RS, you can for example travel by car, have fun on the track and then drive back home without having to change anything. ”
