The RS1 racing team gave the Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR its first IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (CTSCC) victory over the weekend at VIRginia International Raceway (VIR). Dillon Machavern (Burlington, Vermont) and Dylan Murcott (Ancram, New York) drove the No. 28 entry to their first victory as well as the first win for RS1 in the GS class of the IMSA support series.
The Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR is a direct descendant of Porsche’s Cayman GT4 road car. The Clubsport variant, which shares approximately 80 percent of its parts with the road car, was introduced in 2016 with a focus on club racing but was so popular it was adopted by professional racers as well. Late in 2016, Manthey Racing (MR) and Porsche Motorsport fine-tuned the car to meet the international GT4 specifications. It races in that configuration here in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and the Pirelli World Challenge GTS and GTS-X.

“Today was all about getting points. I was just out there trying to run clean, consistent laps. It just so happened the RS1 guys gave us an incredibly fast car and it was super consistent on the Continental tires. It made my job really easy. This one really goes out to the RS1 boys.”
