Here’s a short video from NM2255 featuring Sebastien Loeb testing Porsche’s new 991 GT3 Cup car at a wet Monza circuit.
Piloting the number 88 car here, the nine-time World Rally champion is only taking part in four WRC events this year as he continues his ventures into other areas of motorsport. In the last twelve months he has competed in the French GT Championship, the French Carrera Cup and also launched Sebastien Loeb Racing which competes in FFSA GT and the European Le Mans Series. And, if that’s not enough, he will also be climbing Pikes Peak in June.
Based on the 991 GT3 model, the Cup version is powered by a naturally aspirated 3.8-litre flat-six engine, developing 338 kW (460 hp), a 7 kW (10 hp) improvement over its predecessor.
