iRacing vs Real – Porsche 911 RSR At Le Mans
It has been a while since we last published a quality sim racing comparison video, so here we go.
YouTuber Teemu Valkeejärvi posted an impressive fan video, showing us side by side footage of the real and iRacing virtual version of the Porsche 911 RSR at the Circuit de la Sarthe (Le Mans).
The 2017 Porsche 911 RSR is the biggest evolution in the history of Porsche’s top GT model. While retaining the typical 911 design, most of the technical elements have been re-developed from scratch and are fully compliant with the new LM-GTE/ACO class rules.
Unlike its rear-engined predecessors, the 2017 RSR features a new lightweight 503bhp 4.0-litre six-cylinder engine that is located in front of its back axle. This design will improve the RSR’s overall weight balance and enables the fitment of a large rear diffuser which in its turn will result in more downforce and stability. Furthermore, the RSR also received a newly designed suspension, six-speed paddle-shifted gearbox, and enhanced aerodynamic features.
The real-world Porsche 911 RSR competes in the American IMSA Weathertech Championship and FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) including the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The French Circuit de la Sarthe is without a doubt one of the most iconic racing tracks in the world. It is the home of the world famous 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race which is one of the worlds oldest active sportscar races, held annually since 1923.
