Entering the 2022 season with its 350th race this month, the prestigious Porsche championship returns for its milestone 20th anniversary. The Porsche Carrera Cup GB continues to be an unmissable feature of every motorsport enthusiast’s calendar. It is still the fastest single marque GT racing championship in the country.
But it is not only a magnetic attraction for spectators. The championship acts as the perfect audition for ambitious drivers keen to prove themselves and accelerate their progression in the world of motorsport. Focusing on pure driver skill, the Championship uses identical cars creating a thrilling, close racing environment and features superb facilities for both drivers and teams.
Former drivers such as Charlie Eastwood, Richard Westbrook, Michael Meadows and Damien Faulkner have used their success as Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain champions to fuel their careers as professional GT racers. Nicholas Latifi, who took part in the 2015 Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain season, reached the pinnacle of motorsport as a driver for the Formula 1® championship team, Williams Racing, in 2020.
The newly introduced 992 911 GT3 Cup for the 2022 season is faster, more durable, more efficient and even safer than its predecessors. It is quite simply a pure-bred race car and a precision instrument for the racetrack.
The latest 992 uses a four-litre six-cylinder boxer engine which delivers greater power, producing a total of 510 hp at 8,400 rpm and 470 Nm at 6,150 rpm. Drive force is transmitted to the rear axle by a racing clutch and a Porsche six-speed sequential transmission and limited slip differential.
A key benefit of this new drive system is that the engine and gearbox run times have been doubled before they require their first rebuild since the last generation with 100 hours engine runtime and 120 hours gearbox runtime, thereby significantly reducing operating costs. The 911 GT3 Cup is still the number one sports racing car among motorsports teams and drivers. It competes in prestigious racing events around the world including GT racing series and endurance races. Delivering incredible performance, it is also the most equal car in motorsport, clearly demonstrating individual driver skill and nerve.
