I have been working on a deal to move from Porsche GT3Rs to GT3 R8 for some months now. Well the deal closed yesterday and I got 2 cars which we will be racing under International GT (races during TransAm/SVRA weekends), GT Celebration and under HSR (Historic Sportscar Racing).

Yes we are open to sponsorship opportunities ;) !

Detailed pics to follow as the cars move from the west to the east coast of our beautiful nation.

For now some photos as they are now.

Will I see you in Daytona anytime soon?
IGT in December 2022. Not doing IGT 2nd weekend of December 2021 as I am racing Sebring on the Classic 12 hours on the 997 GT3R.

If you are referring to THE 24, not enough $ to pay for that thrill

Depending on what I can put together in terms of sponsorship, I might have live in car from some of the races (its silly how expensive that is). In any case, we use multiple cameras and data loggers and usually post a clip video online.

Here's a couple of examples of video:

From the 997 GT3R Evo

From the 991 GT3R (Engen on P1 is on an R8 Le Mans Prototype!)

I have terabytes of video from the last 20 or so years.

Here is Daytona from my old 991 GT3 Grand Am car:

and a different perspective from Daytona from the seat of 1969 911S:

Juan? Great minds think alike. We bought an older gen R8 LMS Ultra for the same series you plan to run. You and Rob running together? We talked to Rob/Nick about the truspeed cars for one of our customers.
Hey Buddy!

Yes we are, White one is for Rob and Grey/Orange is mine. I will be doing more events than Rob. I touched base with the series and as long as we have 3 or more R8's we get our own class.

So we got your Ultra, Tom P has 2 or 3 of them, Alex W and then the Gen 2 Rob and I. I don't know how the Gen 2 compares to the Ultra. Some say the Ultra is faster but I have no idea. I'll report after I test them.

Off to Sebring tomorrow for the Classic 12 tomorrow on the 997 R.

Are you going?
