VIDEO: Porsche Carrera Cup Asia Putrajaya flash mob

Many of us are familiar with the flash mob, where a group of people suddenly assemble in a public place and perform an act before quickly dispersing. Just search up the term on YouTube, and you’ll see what we mean. However, Porsche put a twist on the flash mob, and it involves something a whole lot more exciting.

See, the German marque currently runs a one-make racing series known as the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia. From September 4-6, round nine and 10 of the racing series was held at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia. In an effort to “get closer to their fans”, the racing series decided to organise a flash mob on the streets of Putrajaya after the race, and it certainly was a spectacle to behold for the surprised pedestrians, some rushing out of their offices to catch a glimpse.

For the flash mob, Porsche brought all the action from the race track to the streets with a full racing grid of Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (Type 991) racers. The cars were accompanied by not just their pit crews, but grid girls as well. With an impromptu crowd cheering to the sounds of the wonderful flat-six engines revving at the start line, a set starting lights begin the countdown to start the “race”.

Unfortunately, the video fades out to the action on the Sepang International Circuit, so we don’t think any actual racing took place on that day. However, the flash mob itself is pretty amazing to watch just for the sight of a fleet of 911 racers on the streets of Putrajaya. Certainly looks ripe for a street circuit, right?
