Featured racing includes:
Porsche Carrera Cup Australia
The pinnacle of Australian one-make racing: Porsche Carrera Cup Australia will headline the Porsche Rennsport Australia Motor Racing Festival with its unique two-driver endurance format. The championship will hold two hour-long Pro-Am races, pairing one professional driver and one semi-professional driver in each Porsche in search for Carrera Cup victory.
Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge presented by Pirelli
Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Australia provides a semi-professional platform for up-and-coming club drivers and racing enthusiasts to enter national-level motorsport. GT3 Cup Challenge presented by Pirelli will also adjust its normal championship round for an endurance battle worthy of Porsche’s motorsport history.
Porsche Sports Cars
The Sports Car race at Rennsport will once again provide the most diverse range of Porsche racing cars from all categories and eras. This category allows almost any Porsche and driver with the necessary logbook and licence to compete alongside each other. Rally car, club car, or race car, these will all line-up on the grid in 2016.
Porsche Historic Groups S&N
The Group S and Group N race will again truly highlight how alive and thriving historic Porsche motorsport is in Australia. Competing at Rennsport as a combined category for sports and touring cars for year models between 1948 – 1977, this historic only race will be one to watch over the weekend.
Regularity is considered the entry level to motorsport in Australia. All Porsche cars are eligible, with only minimal safety and CAMS licence requirements. Split into 3 divisions based on year model and lap times, first time competitors all the way through to Porsche club regulars will each set their own time to achieve on every lap. The winner will be decided by the driver losing the least amount of points over each session over the weekend.
