Porsche 911 GT2 RS breaks Mount Panorama production car lap record

A Porsche 911 GT2 RS has broken the production car lap record at Mount Panorama, with amateur driver Jeff Morton behind the wheel. The time of 2:14.24 – achieved during a Super Sprint session at the Challenge Bathurst event – shaved more than two seconds of the previous record of 2:16.50, set in 2017 by Bernd Schneider in a Mercedes-AMG GT R. “I’m extremely happy, the time came pretty easily in the end,” Morton said of the attempt.
