The Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain 2017 season is upon us. In what is set to be the most hotly contested season to date, Porsche Retail Group is delighted to announce that we will once again be sponsoring the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar, Charlie Eastwood.
After a strong debut Carrera Cup GB season, Charlie Eastwood will now compete as one of the firm favourites to challenge his Redline Racing teammate and 2016 Carrera Cup champion, Dan Cammish. Charlie’s pace progressed notably over the course of last season, culminating in becoming Rookie champion and sealing a stunning breakthrough win at Brands Hatch.
The 2017 season will start at the BTCC season opener at the Brands Hatch (Indy) circuit.
In June we will join Porsche Carrera Cup France, GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux and a number of international guest entries at Le Mans. The grid will comprise 61 identical 911 GT3 Cup cars, racing in front of over 250,000 spectators plus the LMP1 and RSR Porsche factory teams.
As in previous years, Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain is an important support race to the BTCC and in 2017 we will be racing at a number of BTCC rounds including Donington, Snetterton and Brands Hatch (Grand Prix circuit). Each circuit will present drivers with different challenges to test nerves and skills to the limit. See below for the confirmed 2017 racing calendar.
