Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car
Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge GB is combined of two classes to accommodate the Porsche 997 GT3 Cup Car (Class 1) and the Porsche 996 GT3 Cup Car (Class 2). A series of regulation relaxation and differing minimum weight restrictions ensures that both cars remain competitive so that participation costs within the series remain both low and fair.
997 GT3 Cup Car (2006-2009 cars eligible only)
With more than 1400 cars produced, the Porsche 997 GT3 Cup Car is the best selling racing car of all time. Originally introduced in the 2005 Porsche Supercup, it is powered by the iconic 3.6 litre flat-six, producing 400bhp at 7,300rpm, with an increase to 426bhp at 7,500rpm for 2008-2009 models. With a revised aero package the 997 GT3 Cup Car generates 40% more downforce than the 996 GT3 Cup Car, predominantly through its wider and higher rear wing.
996 GT3 Cup Car (1999-2004/5)
The first ever racing car to christen the new era of water-cooled Porsches, the original 996 GT3 Cup Car delivered 370bhp at 7,200rpm allowing it to boast a 0-62mph time in under four seconds and a top speed of 177mph.
Further revisions in 2001 almost doubled the downforce at the rear axle, whilst at the front a modified enlarged central radiator channels air upwards, reducing hot air flowing under the car to the engine, and increasing overall downforce and thus grip.
A final round of modifications in 2004 increased engine performance to 400bhp at 7,300rpm and maximum torque to 390Nm at 6,300rpm, along with further minor aerodynamic optimisation.
