As one of the region’s best sports car series, Porsche Wilson Security Carrera Cup Australia is set for a bumper season in 2018; one that will see new cars, new tracks and a fully subscribed field of Pro and Pro-Am racers.
One of the key drawcards to the 2018 season is the introduction of the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car. Born on the 911 production line in Stuttgart, the second-generation 991 series 911 race car made its track debut in 2017 in Europe and North America before Australia adopted the new race-bred 911 in 2018. The new 911 is faster, safety and more affordable than its predecessor, improving the overall racing experience for Porsche’s teams, drivers and fans trackside.
And in 2018, Carrera Cup will be more visible than ever. Exclusively on Formula 1 and Supercars events, every race of the season will be broadcast live in Australia, while 12 of the series’ 13 races from its largest four events will be televised live on free-to-air Network Ten.
As the championship is owned and operated by Porsche Cars Australia, the brand ensures Carrera Cup is run at the highest standard by Porsche’s in-house motorsport team.
Full fields, new cars and some of Australia’s best Pro and Pro-Am sports car drivers… Be sure to follow the Porsche Wilson Security Carrera Cup Australia championship in 2018..
