- First ever Nordschleife race for the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup
Porsche Carrera World Cup is breaking all records. Now the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup will also run a classification round at the greatest Porsche race in the world on 25 June on the Nordschleife of the Nurburgring. At the legendary race track, also known as “Green Hell”, more than 200,000 spectators will witness up to 200 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race cars competing.
The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, which runs as support to Formula 1 since 1993 as the fastest international one-make series, was originally scheduled to race at the Formula 1 event in Valencia/Spain on this weekend. Instead of racing in Valencia the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup will now contest the Porsche Carrera World Cup.
“Understandably for our drivers and teams, the Porsche Carrera World Cup is an experience they won’t want to miss,” says Jonas Krauss, Manager of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. “We’re delighted to be able to offer our teams the chance to be part of this history-making event.”
Four weeks later the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup returns to the Nurburgring for round six of the season as support of the Formula 1 race. Contesting classification rounds at the Porsche Carrera World Cup alongside the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, which is the pinnacle of the 20 Porsche brand trophy series worldwide, are the Porsche Carrera Cups from Germany, Great Britain, France, Italy and Scandinavia.
“With the Porsche Carrera World Cup we want to offer our makes cup customers all over the world another highlight,” says Hartmut Kristen, Head of Porsche Motorsport, about the record-breaking race which takes place just prior to the 24 hour classic on the Eifel circuit. “I’m certain that this race will be an unforgettable experience for all drivers and spectators at the circuit.”
