Porsche - Philosophy

Philosophy

For more than 15 years, the Porsche Sports Cup has been one of the most successful customer and club sport racing series win the world. The series offers customers with an affinity for motorsport the unique opportunity to take part in motorsport in a professional yet familiar environment. Both, street-legal Porsche vehicles and those modified for racing can compete here. In 2021, exciting motorsport at various levels and performance levels will once again be offered over six weekends on five renowned circuits - both for Porsche drivers with a motorsport license and for drivers looking for an easy introduction to motorsport and wanting to get a taste of the racetrack air for the first time. The Porsche Sports Cup offers a varied program not only for racing drivers. Visitors can also enjoy the race weekend of the track in the Porsche Brand World, Kids World or in the Porsche Hospitality.

Starting the engine left-handed.

Porsche and motor sports are virtually inseparable. Porsche’s decades-long racing tradition has always formed an intrinsic part of the brand. The left hand starts the engine: as early as 1925, the placement of the ignition switch to the left of the steering wheel enabled race drivers to start their engine even while they were still climbing into their car during the start from the pit wall at Le Mans. And when something works well, we keep it that way.

Porsche is active in motor sports – and will remain so – and that also goes for customer sports. The Porsche motor sports pyramid displays the breadth of Porsche’s presence in motor sports and shows which Porsche cars can be entered into the various race series.

The Porsche Sports Cup.

Between Porsche Sport Driving School’s sport driving events and the Porsche brand cups for professional race drivers, the Porsche Sports Cup offers the optimal entry into Porsche motor sports.

The Porsche Sports Cup encompasses six race series in all – from the Introduction to Racetrack to the Porsche Drivers Competition and Porsche Drivers Competition Pro to the Porsche Sprint GT, Porsche Sprint Challenge and Porsche Endurance Challenge – an event suited to every level of driving ability.

The race weekends are held at famous tracks, including Hockenheim, the Nürburgring and Spa-Francorchamps.

Depending on the series, an extremely wide range of Porsche models can be entered – Porsche Boxsters, Caymans or 911s in the entry level series, consistency trials, and races for cars with road legal tyres. At the Porsche Cup and GT3 R, race cars compete in the top series for race cars. But separate categories are also planned for classic Porsche models. The Porsche Sports Cup thus offers drivers the opportunity to experience motor sports with virtually every Porsche model.
