PORSCHE 993 GT2 ROOCK
GT2 Winner at 1999 Daytona 24 Hours
The Porsche 911s are probably the most successful sport cars ever, designed in the early 60s they were continuously updated with the best knowledge and technology. Their forty years racing history is legendary as they won some of the most prestigious races : the Monte-Carlo rally, Daytona 24 hours, Le Mans 24 hours, Targa Florio and even Paris-Dakar. In 1994 endurance races had turned from Prototypes to GT cars, in the new BPR championship which later became the FIA-GT, three categories appeared : GT1, GT2 and GT3. The new 993 introduced in 1994, was then the perfect basis for a high performance GT2 class race car and the first factory GT2 appeared in 1995. They soon became private teams’ preferred GT2s and some as Freisinger were semi-factory backed. 993 GT2s were terribly quick cars with 500+ HP and good chassis. However with the arrival of the Viper GTS-Rs in the class the task became more and more difficult from 1997 and soon impossible when the Oreca Team pushed the Viper’s development due to the all new Corvette C5R arrival. Roock racing was created in the 80s and went to Porsches in 1991 after success in Carrera Cup, SPA 24 Hours, ADAC-GT went to endurance racing in BPR. Success came quickly as they won the GT Class at Le Mans in 1996. Due to the very important competition in the category, Roock Racing took it technical independence from factory GT2s to keep their cars competitive and made their own development managed by Mike Gramke. From 1998 Roock cars benefited of : 600 HP 3.8 engine, sequential Gemini gearbox, Thielert engine management, repositioned radiators and fuel tank, tracks increased by 7 cm, a lightened and reinforced Matter tub and revised air circulation with specific floors. They are the lightest 993 GT2s ever built at Le Mans 1998 they were only 1060 kg.
