HPI Racing Paired with Team Falken Porsche GT3 RSR

Apr 16, 2012 No Comments by

Until recently, there have been little rumors about HPI getting involved with American LeMans Series and the Falken Tires Porsche GT3 RSR race team. Well, those rumors are true and HPI has gone the extra step by making a RC replica of the actual 2012 Porsche GT3 RSR race car. The kit will feature a replica body with functional wing as well as scale wheels/tires that are taller and wider then anything they currently produce in order to keep the proportions true to scale. I tagged along with the HPI crew during the Long Beach Grand Prix held this past weekend in order to get the low down on their new project.

About the author

I've raced just about every type of RC car, traveled the world shooting RC races, but at the end of the day though, you'll most likely find me behind the wheel of a 1/8-scale nitro buggy at my local track. I'm a Southern California native, which on any given day allows me the opportunity to race on just about any surface or facility of my choosing. Before I was heavily into RC most of my attention was focused towards photography. Since, all of the experience that I've gained and learned has been projected towards RC photography. I'm fueled by the idea of creating something new every time I head to take pictures. Whether it's portraits, racing action, or a track panoramas.
