The Porsche 911 GT3 has set a
new lap record of 2 minutes 7.6 seconds at the Buddh International Circuit.
India’s first Formula 1 driver, Narain Karthikeyan, got behind the wheel of the
Porsche 911 GT3 to beat the previous track record for road-approved
street-legal production cars by 2.2 seconds.
In the early hours of November 20th, Karthikeyan, who made his Formula 1 debut in 2005 with Jordan and drove again in the championship for Hispania Racing in 2011-2012, took on the challenge of setting the benchmark lap time at India’s only FIA-certified circuit. Conditions were optimal across the 5.13 km, 16-turn track, with the 500 hp two-seater achieving a top speed of 262 km/h.
The record is officially certified by the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India, with the project also supported by Michelin and ExxonMobil.
