Porsche Carrera Cup Australia is set for an extraordinary 2014 season.
The one-make championship retains all the elements that make it one of the most popular and spectacular racing categories in Australia. But in 2014, it gets a little more impressive.
The 2014 season marks the much-anticipated introduction of the new Type 991 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car.
The new GT3 Cup is a product of the latest technology and engineering excellence from the German sports car brand. However, equally as important, the new race car highlights Porsche’s continued – and much-valued – mantra of one-make competition: every car is technically identical. Therefore, apart from its racing livery, every 911 GT3 Cup on the Carrera Cup grid is the same, giving all drivers an equal opportunity for success.
In addition to its unrivalled parity is Porsche’s professional approach to motorsport operation and administration. Controlled in-house at Porsche Cars Australia (PCA) by its Motorsport Team, the championship is run at the highest standard and is a standout at Australian race tracks.
All this comes at a very competitive cost. Porsche provides the ultimate one-make racing experience at a fraction of the budget of similar categories.
Competing in front of approximately 1.3 million spectators in 2013, the all-Porsche championship is the primary support category to the popular V8 Supercars Championship. And while the series enjoys large crowds on track, even more fans view the Australian Porsche action via the championship’s comprehensive television package.
Featuring on various free-to-air and subscription television networks both in Australia and worldwide, Carrera Cup Australia ensures Porsche enthusiasts across the globe get to enjoy the close competition between some of Australia’s and New Zealand’s most talented motor racing drivers.
Porsche Carrera Cup Australia will again compete at many of Australia’s signature motor racing events, including the prestigious Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix, the iconic Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 and beachside spectacular, the Armor All Gold Coast 600.
Season 2014 will be one to watch, set to display the very best in Porsche one-make racing.
