Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia

Attracting the best Pro and Pro-Am sports car drivers from the Australasian region, Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup is the premier one-make championship in Australia with drivers competing in identical Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (Type 992) race cars.

Carrera Cup races across the country at the biggest motorsport events in Australasia, delivering market leading event attendees, broadcast reach, and premium experiences for all drivers, teams and partners involved.

The new 992 generation 911 GT3 cup car makes its Australian debut in Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup in 2022.

The spectacularly styled Cup car is the first racing version based on the current 922 generation road car and the first one make-cup racer of the German sports car manufacturer to feature a wide turbo spec body.

Producing around 375 KW (510 HP), the new 911GT3 Cup exceeds the output of its immediate predecessor by 25 horsepower.

The overall increase in performance of the 992 generation - over the type 991 II generation - was immediately apparent in the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup rounds in 2021, where lap times were slashed by up to three seconds at most European circuits.

This was in part due to not only the increase in power, but increase traction and downforce, with component run times also extended over the previous generation - offering lower running costs and reliability for all.

With all 32 992 generations units sold in Australia, 2022 will be arguably the biggest in the category's history, following not only the news the Paynter Dixon will be Carrera Cup Australia's title sponsor for a further two years, but that the Australian one-make Championship will again be the primary support category at major Repco Supercar Championship events throughout next year.

The season gets underway in fine style at the Australian Grand Prix in April, before attending the marquee rounds of the Repco Australia Supercars Championship throughout the year.

The final round sees a return for the Championship to the Surfers Paradise Street Circuit on the Gold Coast in late October.

Carrera Cup Australia will also be more visible than ever in 2022 with every race live, in HD and break-free on Fox Sports and Kayo Sports.

Channel Seven will be the free-to-air broadcast partner for the Supercars Championship in 2022, while Channel Ten will be the broadcast partner for the AustralianGrandPrix.

As Carrera Cup Australia is owned and operated by Porsche Cars Australia, the brand ensures Australia's premier one-make series is run at the highest standard by Porsche's in-house motorsport team.

With a capacity field, breathtaking racing cars and some of Australia's best Pro and Pro-Am sports car drivers, 2022 will be one of the best in the championship's history.
