Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge

The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge is poised for an excellent season in 2012. Following development seasons in 2010 and 2011, the series is gathering strength and promises to deliver excellent value for money racing in 2012. It will be managed directly by Porsche Cars GB, alongside the hugely successful Porsche Carrera Cup GB.

The series is open to any 911 GT3 Cup car from 2009 or earlier. The series sits comfortably beneath the Carrera Cup GB, which will, as usual, be open to the latest model 911 GT3 Cup car. There will be close links between the Carrera Cup GB and the new GT3 Cup Challenge and the twin series will share a race weekend at Silverstone in October when the GT3 Cup Challenge steps up to join the BTCC support programme for the first time.

The GT3 Cup Challenge is an established concept across the world, with race series in New Zealand, Australia, Brazil and the USA.
