On 15 August 2020, at SDAP’s first Porsche Night Open Track in 2020, several achievements and records on the race track were broken. After months of event restrictions, sports car drivers were anticipating getting back on track for some driving fun, with an enthusiastic response of over fifty participants.
The momentous occasion was a day meant to fulfil the driver’s adrenaline rush. From remembering past race track moments, hear the roar of sports cars such as 911 GT models, the new generation of 911 models, the mid-engine 718 Cayman and Boxster, and even a classic car participating in the Porsche Time Trial. The competition to clinch the overall fastest lap time was definitely an intense one for the participants, with everyone aiming to be the fastest on track. The night ended with a befitting award ceremony for all participants.
Although the condition of the racetrack was slightly damp due to the rain, it did not deter the enthusiasm on the racetrack. Everyone was still spirited and ready to have some fun once it was announced safe from the track marshals.
During the event, there were two ongoing challenges: the Time Trial challenge and the Most Consistent Lap driver. For the Time Trial challenge, the fastest lap time across all categories clocked at 02:18:558 by a 911 GT2 RS. One of the participating 911 GTS models clocked the lap time of 2:25:778 to clinch the fastest lap for 911 categories. At 2:40:063, the 718 Cayman S claimed the top spot within the mid-engine categories.
Precision and consistency are keys to constant improvement on the racetrack. The Most Consistent Lap driver clocked an average of 2:39.258 overall lap consistency across 10 laps with special thanks to the professional guidance from the Porsche instructors who were available at the racetrack.
Seasoned track day participants who have been constantly elevating their skills to the next level were also sharing their knowledge to keep the sportscar fascination spirit strong within these new generations of Porsche track enthusiasts.
With over a decade of track day events organized offering unlimited driving fascination, SDAP is delighted to be part of the customer journey enabling the growth of a new generation of sports car owners within the Porsche family.
