Porsche Supercup series to continue alongside F1

Porsche Supercup F1

Porsche and F1 have reached a deal to extend the Supercup series as the support series will remain on the calendar until 2030.

The Porsche Supercup series is a support series alongside F1 introduced in 1993. The event has since been a part of the F1 calendar.

Now, both parties have extended the deal to another eight years until 2030.

The Porsche Supercup series will begin in Imola in May next year. The series will then cover eight European tracks concluding in September at the Italian Grand Prix. The schedule for the series is out.

This time around, the event will have 28 permanent drivers. The competitors will compete using the 375 kW (510 PS) Porsche 911 GT3 Cup machine.

Also, on the sidelines, the specific rounds of the Porsche Carrera Cup Japan and Porsche Carrera Cup Asia will also continue as the support series championships of F1. These series are all part of the F1 support program.

“For more than 30 years Porsche has been an important part of the Formula 1 weekend. I’m looking forward to continuing our long-standing relationship which delivers something special for our fans across our European season and beyond,”

said Stefano Domenicali, CEO of Formula 1.

“It is yet another sign of our growth and influence as a platform that major brands want to continue to expand their relationships with us and the potential that is there for all our partners.”

The future of this series is secured. However, the future of Porsche entering F1 is still uncertain. After the failed talks with red bull, the German manufacturer hasn’t made much progress in its efforts to enter the pinnacle of motorsports in 2026.
