Porsche 911 GT3 Cup to compete in Race of Champions

The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is the most popular race car ever. To date, over 2,000 vehicles have been delivered to customers around the world and compete in both national championships and the F1-supporting Mobil1 Supercup. And now, the 444 bhp GT racer from Weissach joins the official competition cars at the annual Race of Champions, where many of the world’s most talented and famous racing celebrities from diverse disciplines come together to fight for the Nations Cup and individual Race of Champions title.

Video of Petter Solberg’s embarassing moment

The place – last week’s Bettega Memorial Rallysprint in Bologna, Italy. The driver – Petter Solberg, 2003 WRC champion as he performed a parade lap for the crowd. But it looks like he got a little carried away with the moment and decided to demonstrate his stunt driving skills too..

We’re glad he came away from this incident unhurt, so let’s hope we see Petter back ‘inside’ a WRC car in the near future.
