High-tech, dynamics and precision – our involvement in the Porsche Carrera Cup meets our brand essence

The team excursion to the Sachsenring (see blog news of 08.11.2022) brought our colleagues closer to the Porsche Carrera Cup racing series. During the round tour and the vehicle inspection, accompanied by race driver Jonas Greif, the RAPA group learned about the top performance and technical refinements behind the Porsche racing cars.

 

Thrilling technology – made for winners

Jonas Greif said that the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is considered difficult to steer among drivers. Handwork and brains are required here – and respect from the machine. The current model is ultra-fast and designed differently from its predecessor. For example, there are new aerodynamics and the front axle unfolds new efficiencies. The engine enables acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds! To repeat: four seconds! The power then brings a top speed of 286 km/h during the race. Logically, there’s little of the street-legal settings left in the car. None of ESP, ABS or air conditioning or else is equipped in the GT3 racer.

Oliver Henkelmann, Vice President Sales, RAPA Automotive, praises the racing Porsche and its driver, who has been supported by RAPA since 2022: “The technology and emotional world surrounding the Porsche Carrera Cup fit in with our company values such as high-tech, top engineering, dynamics and precision. That’s also what RAPA is all about.” In addition, young talent is growing up in the racing series – just as RAPA offers young talent career opportunities in all areas of the company.

New mobility also at the Sachsenring: Our colleagues were thrilled by the FIA ETCR eTouring Car World Cup – a German premiere of the best electric touring car series. Only a small number of vehicles took part here, but with a special feature: the “Power-up2 mode” is a kind of booster that releases the maximum line of 500 kw(680hp) for a short time.
