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.
