German race team Manthey Racing takes its Porsche 911 (997) GT3 RS onto Ferrari's track.

Here's a heart-pumper from our friend Marco (aka Marchettino).

The video shows a Mk1 997 GT3 RS from Manthey Racing with a loud but sonorous X-Ost exhaust doing its huffing and puffing thing on the Imola circuit in Italy. (The track's official name is Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari and it lies 80 km (49.7 miles) east of Ferrari headquarters in Maranello.)

We get to see the usual slick fly-bys but also some solid in-car footage and other shots from many angles in this top-notch production. Top speed reached in this run was 238 km/h (147 mph) and that was done in 5th gear.

Congratulations are in order to Marco as this is his 800th video posting.

Keep 'em coming, Marco.
