Porsche Carrera Cup GB Junior

Running since 2008, the hugely successful PCCGB Junior programme (previously called the Scholarship), strives to find and nurture the best young racing talent.

Candidates are put through their paces on and off the track at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone. Not only does the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Junior have to be an outstanding racing driver, they must show that their media and fitness skills can be developed to ensure they are the perfect ambassador for Porsche.

In addition to the normal racing calendar, the Junior attends high profile events such as the Goodwood Festival of Speed and other networking events that boost their exposure.

The chosen Junior benefits from £85,000 per annum towards their racing budget, support from Porsche Motorsport Engineers, specialist media training and a full fitness programme with the Porsche Human Performance team.

In addition to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Junior, the highest ranked and eligible driver in 2017 will also be invited to the Porsche Motorsport Junior Shootout, where they will compete against leading Porsche Carrera Cup drivers from around the world for a position on this prestigious programme.
