The New 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport available to order now An on the road racecar for every driver
Shanghai. Three years after the premiere of the first Cayman GT4 Clubsport, Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific is proud to announce the unveiling of the brand new 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport. Having made its global debut in January, the new 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport is now available in Asia and is ready to order now via Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific.
In developing the new 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, the focus was put not only on improved drivability and faster lap times but also on the sustainable use of raw materials. The 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport is the first production race car to feature body parts made of natural-fibre composite material. The driver and co-driver doors and the rear wing are made of an organic fibre mix, sourced primarily from agricultural by-products such as flax or hemp fibres and feature similar properties to carbon fibre in terms of weight and stiffness.
The 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport is an entry level race car, very similar to series production – only with higher racing specs – and has the notable advantage of requiring very little professional support when competing in races. Professional pit crews are not necessarily a prerequisite. Drivers can literally load it onto a tow truck, bring it to the race track, start the engine and they’re good to go. These qualities define the 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport as the car of choice for gentleman racers looking to start competing. The 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport received its Asia debut at the Porsche Experience Centre Shanghai.
Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific in 2019
2019 is going to be another thrilling year for Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific. Alongside the release of the brand new 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific will be supporting a number of races in the region and beyond. Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific has already made a strong showing in the Bathurst 12 hour – the first race of the 2019 season of the Intercontinental GT Challenge. In the A class race, supporting private team Earl Bamber Motorsport, the Porsche 911 GT3 R came in first – considering this was the final race for the current model of the Porsche 911 GT3 R, it was a fitting end to send this incredible machine off to the museum with one final victory. Porsche also came second in the B class race having entered a team made up of Porsche Carrera Cup Asia veterans, driving a 911 GT3 Cup. The remaining stops on the Intercontinental GT Challenge will take in the California 8 Hours, Total 24 Hours of Spa in Belgium, the Suzuka 10 Hours in Japan and finish up at the Kyalami 9 Hour in South Africa for a truly global experience.
Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific will support the Chinese national team for their appearance at the FIA GT Nations Cup. This exciting one stop race pits national teams from all over the globe against each other and takes us far from home all the way to Italy at the legendary Valle-lunga Circuit.
Staying in the region, PMAP will once again take part in the Macau GT Grand Prix, and will also support teams racing in the China GT with both the new 911 GT3 R and the brand new 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport making its on-the-track China debut.
