Porsche Carrera Cup

The Porsche Carrera Cup is a regular feature at the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix and in its 12th season is the top one-make sports car series in Australia. There will be four races over the duration of the entire event and they all contribute towards the over Porsche Carrera Cup series.

The series exclusively uses the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (Type 991) car – a purpose built race car constructed at the home of Porsche in Germany.

The stars of Carrera Cup range from experienced high-profile racers and young up-and-comers to businessmen who hold their own behind the wheel of a race car. This mix of professional and semi-professional drivers provides both the high level of popularity and exposure and strong foundations for a successful motor racing series.

Alex Davison made it three wins on the trot in the final Porsche Carrera Cup race at the 2016 Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix.

Starting from pole position, Davison lead Steve Richards by over one second in the 10-lapper, with Nick McBride in third position.

Race one winner Matt Campbell and David Wall completed the top six under brilliant Melbourne sunshine, while Fraser Ross had to forfeit sixth place on lap nine when a puncture forced him out of proceedings.

After two rounds of eight in the 2016 Porsche Carrera Cup, McBride holds onto a slender lead from Davison and Campbell.

Round three will be held at Sydney Motorsport Park from April 29 until May 1.
