Mark Webber And Walter Rohrl Trade Cornering Tips In A Porsche 911 GT2 RS

Video

These champs have two completely different takes on how to round a bend.

The younger guy here is Mark Webber, but ironically enough, he’s the more mature and clinically minded of the two drivers. Or at least that's how it seems on initial impression. Webber once bragged about laying waste to the Nurburgring back straight at a blistering 208 mph, a rate of speed that shames the record-holding Lamborghini Huracan Performante, and he could very soon be the holder of the production car Nurburgring lap record. But Walter Rohrl is another story.

As a legendary rally champion, he’s known for having a bit more fun behind the wheel than his precision-oriented racing buddy, but he's no stranger to Porsches. Rohrl even got a go in the 911 GT2 RS at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, but there he was required to keep the wheel pointed towards the corners.

Not so in this promotional video by Porsche. While trying to show off the duality of the 911 GT2 RS, a car that’s great in the corners when lap times are the main concern but still has a sense of humor when pushed past its limits, the automaker found it easier to describe the car's nature by pitting the two racing drivers and their contrasting styles against each other. RIP to all those tires wasted for our viewing pleasure.
