This car is officially called as the "911 GT2 RS Clubsport", but the name is rather misleading. The car is not built for the GT2 racing class which is long extinct and club sport has standed for Porsche club track days while this non-streel-legal car is a real racing car. Finally, the car that it is based on, the 2018 991 GT2 RS, has already had the Clubsport version from the beginning. So, in order to understand what is what, we call the cars as "991 GT2 RS Clubsport street version" and "991 GT2 RS Clubsport racing version".

While the GT2 street version was sold with the ceramic brakes, they are not for racing use and the 991 GT2 RS racing version was equipped with the steel brake discs - 390 mm at front axle and 380 mm at rear axle. The 991 GT2 RS engine with 515 kW was powerful enough, so it was not tuned.

2019 Porsche Motorsport GT2 Supersportscar Weekend at Spa-Francorchamps

Held on July 26 and 27, 2019, the “Porsche Motorsport GT2 Supersportscar Weekend” was a one-off event. After practising on July 25, the 15 seven hundred hp cars (12x 991 GT2 RS CS + 3x 935) had the chance for 30-minute races on both days, just before the 2019 Spa 24 hour race held on July 27-28. Among the 15 drivers were two Le Mans GTE-Am class winners Christian Ried and Egidio Perfetti. On Friday, Perfetti crossed the finish line in first place in his 935 ahead of Jan-Erik Slooten and Klaus Abbelen in their 991 GT2 RS CS racing cars. On Saturday, Perfetti won again with Slooten second again. Third place went to Christian Ried (GT2 RS CS).
