The Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland will remain a supporting series for the ADAC GT Masters next season. The one-make cup and the German GT Championship have extended their partnership, which began in 2018. As a result, most races in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland will continue to be held under the ADAC GT Masters support program. This season’s schedule included four joint events – with two doubleheaders still to be contested.
“We are delighted to continue our successful alliance with the ADAC GT Masters. As one of the most attractive GT3 series in international motorsport, its professional environment makes it a perfect choice for the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. By extending the contract, we can give our teams planning security at an early stage. », said Bastian Schramm, Marketing Director of Porsche Deutschland GmbH. This year, the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland and the ADAC have also extended their partnership in supporting young talents: the automobile club is the new partner of the Talent Pool, the one-make cup support initiative for promising young drivers. .
“The Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland has been an integral part of the ADAC GT Masters support program since 2018. With its action-packed races, the series significantly adds to the appeal of the events. Additionally, many former and current ADAC GT Masters drivers have risen through the ranks into professional racing via the Porsche Carrera Cup. », said ADAC Motorsport Director Thomas Voss. Since its founding in 2007, the ADAC GT Masters has grown into one of the most successful GT3 series and is currently in its 16th season. Several Porsche customer teams are tackling this year’s ADAC GT Masters with the over 500bhp Porsche 911 GT3 R.
There are still two double events on the schedule for this year’s Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. This weekend (September 23-25), the one-make cup heads to an exciting final stage at the Sachsenring, with the Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg hosting the final from October 21-23, 2022. The current championship leader is the German Laurin Heinrich (SSR Huber Racing). As a member of Motorsport Team Germany, the Porsche Junior driver also receives support from ADAC Stiftung Sport and DMSB. The remaining four races will take place as part of the ADAC GT Masters and will be broadcast live on German free-to-air television NITRO.
