The Talented Mister Rast continued his current Porsche winning streak today with a resounding victory in Carrera Cup Deutschland at the Norisring.
It’s a great result for the capable and entertaining German, always a delight to watch at speed in a 911. Rast stormed off a simmering 35-degree grid from pole position and never looked back. Steering clear of a first corner incident, the winner led Siedler and Edwards across the finish line.
The win puts 2008 champ Rast back on top as we head into race 9, which Porsche says will stream live on their website at 9:05 German time tomorrow morning.
“That was a relatively easy race for me today,” said René. “I got away cleanly and I saw the mayhem behind me in the rear vision mirror. This gave me a major advantage and all I had to do was bring it home. The only problem was the heat.”
Let’s see what happens tomorrow.
