Donaldson-Fisken-Masarati At Sebring
In A Racers Group Porsche

“It’s taken a couple of months to put this together, but having met Kevin Buckler at Daytona, and having been so impressed with the whole package that he can offer, it was inevitable that we would sort out a programme for Sebring.”

Those are the words of Ian Donaldson, who announces that Gregor Fisken and Piers Masarati will be sharing the #68 Racers Group 911 GT3-RS with him at Sebring next month.

dailysportscar.comDavid Morley’s IDM Motorsport Management has also been involved in making this happen, and as we’ll reveal tomorrow, there’s another programme with Kevin Buckler’s team too….

“We’re doing something with Kevin commercially too,” says Donaldson, “and there will be more opportunities with an internationally successful team like The Racers Group.

“The icing on the cake was to have Piers driving with us at Sebring.”

All three of this group ran in the 12 Hours last year, Masarati with PK Sport, Donaldson and Fisken with the Sebah Porsche. Ian Donaldson is a regular at the Bathurst 24 Hours – well, he hasn’t missed one yet! – Masarati has abundant Sebring and Le Mans experience, and Fisken has also competed in a number of international endurance races, such as the Nurburgring and Spa 24 Hours - so there’s that love of endurance racing among all three of the drivers in #68.

Piers Masarati is “thrilled to have the opportunity. I’m looking forward to trying out a Porsche on Michelins for the first time too.”

“The user-friendliness of Kevin Buckler’s set-up has made this possible,” concludes David Morley. “And you know that when Kevin says he’s going to do something, it’s definitely going to happen.”

With a bunch of the new RSRs appearing for the first time at Sebring, it’s going to be very interesting to see which is the better option for a 12 hour event – a brand new car, or a 2003 RS, such as the #68 entry.
