Porsche’s commitment to racing is without equal. As a works team it competes in Formula E while it conducts a serious investigation into whether or not it should return to prototype sports car racing in the forthcoming LMDh category. In the meantime it continues to field its 911 RSR racers in the GT Pro and GT Am classes while the 911 GT3R is a stalwart of many years racing in GT3 right around the world. And it doesn’t stop there.
In the UK alone, while Ferrari has just started its very first one-make race series, Porsche now has three. The original is the Carrera Cup, claimed by Porsche to be the fastest one-make championship in Britain, which has been running for 18 years and is known for its wincingly close racing and long-held status on television as a support race to the (slower) BTCC cars.
The newest is the Porsche Sprint Challenge GB, a series featuring exclusively Cayman GT4 Clubsport race cars (which run to strict GT4 rules so can also be raced in innumerable series right around the world). By far the most affordable is the Porsche Classic Boxster Cup, using only original 986 series Boxsters and run by Porsche Club GB but backed and supported by Porsche Cars.
