It will be interesting to see his lap times versus the full-house GT3-R/RSR spec race cars. Go hard Walter!

2010 997 GT3 Driving Masterlass

Some thoughts and views from a Melbourne 'Age' journo driver at a Porsche Cars Australia driver training event in the new 997 GT3 Mk2.

DO NOT SELL YOUR Mk 1!
 
No. 2 is Lotus 340 R and No. 1 Pagani Zonda F. Another finalist was the Ferrari F50 at No. 7. Also I am pleased with the 911 (993) Turbo listed at No. 46 (a bit low I reckon) and the hairdressers amongst us will be pleased that the Boxster S rated No. 52.
