Last year it was Cargraphic with their GT3 RSC3.8 but now it was Porsche tuner, TechArt, as they put their Porsche GT2 based 700 hp / 515 kW GTstreet RS to the challenge with a victorious lap time of 1.06,811 minutes for the short course of the Hockenheim circuit. Driven by Jörg Hardt who is one of the most successful drivers in the Porsche Carrera Cup won the GT class. The roadworthy GTstreet RS benefited from a specially adapted sport suspension which was set up to cope with the short course by both TechArt and Bilstein engineers. Jörg Hardt, who is one of the most successful drivers in the Porsche Carrera Cup, was very enthusiastic about the vehicle, “The car was prepared to perfection”. In addition to its overall victory, TECHART Automobildesign also clocked up an additional success in the Cabrio category: Jörg Hardt drove the 580 PS / 441 kW TECHART GTstreet Cabriolet to success in the Cabriolet class with a lap time of 1:10,382 minutes.
