This 1997 Porsche 911 GT2 is a youngster, 23 year old girl, ready to race again. The car was ordered new at the Porsche factory in 1997 by the Estoril Racing team and it ran the Le Mans 24h in the GT2 class in 1998 and 1999, under Estoril Racing name.
Faithful to its initial purpose of being a racing Porsche dedicated to gentlemen drivers, it was driven by father and son Manuel and Michel Monteiro. Further to few Le Mans outings, this car has been raced in various FIA events from 1997 until 2002.
After that period, the Monteiro family car was eventually sold to a French enthusiast who resprayed the car to its 1998 livery and used it regularly for trackdays and demonstrations before finally selling it to the current owner after an important service at Larbre competition. From then the car has been prepared with the strong intention of being competitive and raced hard again in the growing Global Endurance Series.
