Porsche Carrera Cup Asia



Official Website: www.carreracupasia.com

Bringing its signature brand of exhilarating motorsports competition to millions across the region, the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia has earned an impressive fan and media following since its launch in 2003. In 2011, Porsche China took over the organizational reins of the series.

Now firmly established as Asia’s premier international sportscar racing championship, the  2012 series begins a new era with a the finest group of sportscar drivers ever assembled in Asia, a record eight Porsche China dealer teams and an enviable calendar. A truly international field of drivers compete, with drivers coming from as far afield as Europe and the USA, and as close to home as China.

Several unique elements contribute to the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia’s success, including the creation of Class B in 2004 for non-professional drivers. Class B affords amateur drivers the chance to race with professionals – a unique opportunity to learn from the best in the business.

Services are centrally managed, including transportation and logistics, parts services, hospitality and accommodation. While teams have the option of entering with their own service crew, the “Arrive and Drive” concept, which provides drivers with professional support services of the highest calibre, continues to be available.

In 2012, the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia will be out on track at the pinnacle of the sport on two occasions – in support of the FORMULA 1 UBS CHINESE GRAND PRIX in Shanghai and the FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX on the Marina Bay street circuit.
