2 PORSCHE RS SPY­DER

Autosport (UK) - - FINISHING STRAIGHT -

Penske com­bined forces with its old Ger­man ally once again in the mid-2000s to de­velop this LMP2 con­tender. It moved the goal­posts, Penske tak­ing three con­sec­u­tive Amer­i­can Le Mans Se­ries LMP2 ti­tles be­tween 2006 and ’08, and other Spy­der teams win­ning the class at Le Mans in ’08 and ’09. Not only did the RS Spy­der dom­i­nate the smaller pro­to­type cat­e­gory, it proved ca­pa­ble of beat­ing Audi’s R10 to over­all ALMS wins, prob­a­bly the most fa­mous of which was its ’08 Se­bring 12 Hours vic­tory with Timo Bern­hard/em­manuel Col­lard/ro­main Du­mas.
