311RS Motorsport: 992 GT3 Cup delivery
February 19th, 2021 – 311RS Motorsport traveled to Atlanta, GA to pick up the first two Porsche 911 (992) GT3 Cup cars ahead of the inaugural Porsche Carrera Cup North America season.
311RS Motorsport had Camden Thrasher (images) and Tangent Vector (film) on hand to capture the monumental day for the team.
Driver #11 – Ryan Gates – “Today was a surreal experience. The first thing I noticed was the smell in the warehouse, 23 Porsche 911 (992) GT3 Cup cars together in one room smell very good – a mix of racing fuel, paint, & glue. The next thing that caught my attention was the wide front-end of the 992 and all of the aerodynamic advancements.
It was immediately clear that Porsche Motorsport had worked very hard to deliver a faster, more capable GT3 Cup than ever before. I have dreamt of one day picking up a brand new factory Porsche race car, but never two!! Today it all became real, and now we get to work.”
Driver #12 – Leh Keen – “Not all days are created equal. I am honored to be a part of 311RS Motorsport’s 2021 Porsche Carrera Cup North America program. Porsche have taken the GT3 Cup to another level. I am proud to have my name on this beautiful new Porsche race car, so ready to get to know it and go racing with 311RS Motorsport.“
