Leading Porsche Carrera Cup driver Andy Britnell recently tested the Oakley Design 997 GT3 as part of Oakley Designs performance products assessment programme.
Andy jumped straight into the hot seat alongside him was Oakley Designs Jon Oakley. Following an initial session of 6 laps of the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit the car pitted with Andy beaming ear to ear.
“Unbelievable” said an ecstatic Andy Britnell. The car is so well balanced, turn in is fantastic and it handles, goes and stops like a dream”.
“We went round the outside of a 996 Cup Car on slicks out there and the 996 was trying. I can’t believe a car can be that quick on road tyres”
Andy Britnell was previously present a few weeks earlier with Oakley Design during wind tunnel testing at MIRA and went on to comment “to have witnessed the level of design, engineering and detail that has gone into the Oakley Design GT3 programme and to have now just driven the end result of many hours of hard labour is just fantastic, absolutely fantastic”.
