2019 RACING SEASON
PORSCHE CARRERA CUP GB
Entering its seventeenth year in 2019, the Porsche Carrera Cup GB is at the very pinnacle of British motor racing and a firm fixture in every motorsport enthusiast’s diary. Identical cars put driver skill in the spotlight and a combination of close, thrilling racing and first class facilities for teams and drivers is a big draw.
The championship has proved itself as a springboard for drivers seeking different careers and accomplishments within the motorsport arena. Nick Tandy, the first British driver to win Le Mans in a Porsche since Allan McNish in 1998, made his debut at the Porsche Carrera Cup GB in 2008. After winning the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland in 2011 and the prestigious Porsche Cup in 2012 as the best private Porsche driver worldwide in a 911, he became a works driver and progressed through the Porsche racing series. His impressive achievements earned him a seat in the third entry for the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2015 where he went on to win the toughest car race in the world.
