Mark Webber is set to give Australian fans the first glimpse of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport, with the ex-Formula 1 star and FIA World Endurance champion slated for demo laps with the future GT2-spec car this weekend at Bathurst.

The 700-horsepower beast, unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in December, is expected to be among the first GT2 cars for SRO Motorsport Group’s new platform that is targeted to launch in July.

A total of 200 GT2 RS Clubsports will be produced, with a focus also placed on track day usage.

Webber, a Porsche ambassador, retired from full-time competition at the end of the 2016 WEC season although has remained active in promoting the German manufacturer’s racing and e-mobility efforts.

The Australian has been a regular at the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour, despite having only raced Mt. Panorama once, in Formula Ford competition in 1995.
