Entering its sixteenth year in 2018, 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.
This year Porsche Centre Exeter hosted guests at rounds 13 and 14 of the Porsche Carrera Cup. Everyone was welcomed with breakfast and a welcome talk from Porsche Technical. The Porsche Technical team highlighted the differences between the 911 Carrera vehicles used on the track and the regular 911 Carrera models, took the guests on a walk around the Cayman S, and explained the difference between a rear and a mid-engine car.
Throughout the day guests enjoyed three British Touring Car races and of course the highlight race, Porsche Carrera Cup qualifying. Our guests were also treated to a paddock tour were they got to see the inner workings of the race team, and meet Porsche Carrera Cup Junior Driver, Dan Harper, while getting to look around his car.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
