Porsche - Rookie Class

Rookie Class

As young single-seater or sports car drivers find the passage to a professional racing career ever more financially challenging, Porsche is extending a huge helping hand by continuing to provide the biggest prize fund of its kind in the UK.

New for 2017, drivers of any age entering Porsche Carrera Cup GB for the first time* will automatically be entered into the Rookie Championship to compete for exceptional prize money. Drivers must register and participate in all races during the 2017 season to be eligible for the Rookie Championship and end of season prize money.

With a prize fund of £35,000 awarded to our top 2017 Rookie, we’re ensuring UK racing talent has a chance to shine and isn’t held back because of financial barriers.

Also new for 2017, all Rookies will spend some time with Porsche GB Motorsport Engineers before the start of the season.

The Rookie Class will operate its own separate points table within the championship but Rookies will also compete within one of the championship categories: Professional, Professional Amateur 1 or Professional Amateur 2, thereby gaining the opportunity to win even more prize money from these respective classes.

At the end of the season, unprecedented cash prizes are available dependent on the drivers’ finishing positions in the championship:

1st
£35,000
2nd
£15,000
3rd
£10,000

*Drivers are permitted to have raced in a maximum of one Porsche Carrera Cup GB race weekend (two rounds) to be eligible for the Rookie Championship. At Porsche’s discretion, if a Rookie is unable to compete in one or more races due to circumstances outside their reasonable control, they would still be eligible to receive prize money. Based on a driver’s racing CV, Porsche reserves the right to permit entry into the Rookie Championship.
