The Porsche Spyder was not only Satellites first car used for endurance racing, it’s also the most successful in the fleet of cars since 2009. Currently we have 3 running in the VOR-ESC series and they’re sitting 2nd and 3rd in points with a couple of wins under their belt for the season. Most recently coming off a 1-2 finish in the 6 hours of Interlagos by 2 laps over 3rd place. The product Porsche put together with this car is unrivaled by any around. The amount of Satellite guys who have been able to jump in and compete at the top level is evident and there’s still plenty of success to come from this car in multiple series.
