Bringing its signature brand of exhilarating motorsports competition to millions across the region and beyond, the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia has earned an impressive fan and media following since its launch in 2003.
Firmly established as Asia’s premier sports car racing series, 2016 sees a formidable international field of brilliant professionals competing wheel-to-wheel with dedicated privateers. A proven testing ground for fledgling talent and a showcase for the world’s leading GT competitors, today the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia is the number one choice for the region’s finest drivers.
All the elements which have contributed to its unprecedented success are further strengthened in 2016, along with a raft of new innovations, which will further solidify the championship’s position as one of the most successful Porsche one-make cups in the world.
Services of the highest standards are centrally managed and provided to all teams and drivers in the series, including:
• Transportation of cars, parts and tools from race to race
• Centrally-managed parts, meaning teams do not need to invest in inventory
• Track hospitality at each race
• Accommodation and transfer packages
• Pit set-up and equipment
Arrive and Drive Option
While individual teams are welcome, competitors have the option of availing themselves of the unique ‘Arrive and Drive’ concept, which provides drivers with professional support services of the highest calibre.
The Technical Service Package includes highly-trained mechanics and supervisors at each race to service and maintain the car, a pre-season check and pre-event service, pit set-up at each event, and packing, loading and unloading of containers.
This option, provided by professional partner EKS Motorsports, represents savings in both time and expense, and means drivers need simply to arrive at the track where the fully-prepared cars await them, making for an exciting and hassle-free race weekend.
Privateer drivers who believe the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia is the exclusive domain of full-time professionals could not be more mistaken. The creation of Class B within the series, designed specifically for those very drivers, affords the opportunity to race with the professionals – a unique chance to learn from the best in the business.
Drivers are welcome
With a truly international field, competitors come from as far afield as Europe and Australia, and as close to home as China, to test their racing mettle in the series.
Both young and young-at-heart compete wheel-to-wheel each season, and the friendly off-track camaraderie has become a signature of the championship.
