Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Australia presented by Pirelli is the perfect mix of fun, affordable motorsport at Australia's greatest race tracks. Featuring at the new-look Shannons Australian Motor Racing Nationals events in 2016, the six round series is dedicated to cost effective motorsport for semiprofessional drivers.
Be it a young up-and-comer, businessman racer or a motorsport enthusiast cutting their teeth on the national stage, the focus remains the same: exciting competition with intense, friendly rivalry – a factor which makes this category a standout in the Australian motor racing landscape.
The Porsche series primarily uses the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (Type 997) car – a purpose-built race car with a top speed close to 300 km/h. Two generations of the Type 997 car are used: the first generation featuring a 400hp, 3.6-litre six-cylinder boxer engine and the second generation Type 997 model with a 450hp 3.8-litre six-cylinder boxer engine – both producing a sound that is distinctly Porsche.
Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Australia presented by Pirelli is managed by Porsche Cars Australia and races at some
of Australia's greatest permanent motor racing circuits, including the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, Winton Motor Raceway and Sydney Motorsport Park, which is where the series will return to the all Porsche
motor racing festival, Porsche Rennsport Australia.
