Next March the new build of iRacing will include a new car: the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR. The German fireball represents a decisive but not extreme racing development of the Cayman GT4 Clubsport, specifically the MR (short for Manthey-Racing) was developed to compete in the GT4 class of the championships organized by SRO Motorsport Group.
On iRacing, the Cayman GT4 MR will participate in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge championship and the Porsche Esports Supercup for the entire 2020 season. In addition, virtual drivers will be able to push it to the limit in the special dedicated event to be held on the Sebring circuit on March 15th.
The aluminum engine is the classic 3800cc 6-cylinder Boxer engine capable of delivering 385 HP at 7400 rpm while the 420 Nm of maximum torque are unloaded to the ground between 4,750 and 6,000 rpm. Among the novelties proposed by Manthey-Racing we find the carbon fiber hood, plexiglass glasses and lighter battery, modifications that have allowed a weight saving on the scale close to 40 kg; finally there is a new rear spoiler increased to ensure more aerodynamic grip and a fully adjustable set-up.
The price of this Porsche Clubsport racing package made by Manthey-Racing? About 28,000 dolars. On iRacing, on the other hand, virtual pilots will be able to purchase it at a decidedly cheaper price of 13.45 dolars, including taxes.
