WTAC 2024: 30TH - 31ST AUGUST

RP968 Record Breaker!

The first session for the EMTRON Pro Class at the 2023 Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge has gone off with a bang as the RP968 Porsche smashed its own lap record, running a 1:18.7 in the morning sun. Amazingly, Barton says there is plenty more left in the four-litre billet-engined monster.

“We finally got it done!” says Barton Mawer. “It is what we set out to do for the car’s owner as we wanted the outright record and it has been a long time coming. We felt the cooler conditions the racetrack would offer more in outright speed this morning even though there was a little oil down on turn 8 and it was a little more slippery than what I was expecting. To be honest, though, I think there is a little more in it, and more to come from us.”
