It’s the Nurburgring Oldtimer GP this weekend. Our friends at EB Motorsport are racing the Light Yellow Porsche 911 RSR, in continued defence of their World Sportscar Masters title in Masters Historic.
EB Motorsport makes premium lightweight panels for classic Porsche 911. To complement its range of ST, RS and RSR composite bodywork, the company has just released a new product: a Porsche 911 SC RS front bumper, moulded straight from an original part. Here’s the first example sold, going on an SC RS-style build, based on a Turbo-look 3.2 Carrera. The build is being done at Tuthill Porsche, who help run the EB car and are building the team a beautiful FIA-spec 3.0 RS at the minute.
The Turbo-look of course has 911 Turbo/930 bodywork. The front wings are quite a bit wider, so bear that in mind if SC RS is your plan for a hot rod build on a narrow body 911 chassis. EB makes wider wings for impact bumper 911s as part of their 911 RSR bodywork range, so that might work. This car also runs a 3.0 RS/RSR-style rear bumper. Here the angle of the arch up front is being smoothed with some body filler, so will look quite different with fresh silver paint applied.
EB Motorsport continues the defence of its World Sportscar Masters title at this weekend’s Nürburgring Oldtimer GP. Qualifying went well this morning with 9th place overall: top 911 and ahead of some legendary sportscars including GT40, Lola T70, Chevron and more.
EB’s Mark Bates loves the Nürburgring: especially in the wet. If Sunday’s race is damp, we could see a repeat of the Masters race at Oulton in March, where the 911 chased down the leaders after starting on a damp track. Check this video below: shows just how hard EB Motorsport runs their sweet Light Yellow 911.
