Porsche Supercup extends contract as F1 support series through 2030

Porsche Supercup extends contract as F1 support series through 2030

Porsche Supercup first joined the Formula One schedule as a support series way back in 1993. As of this morning, Porsche and F1 have come together on a new contract to extend the joint participation through at least 2030, giving the world another eight additional seasons of Porsche-on-Porsche action at some of the greatest tracks in the world.

Porsche Supercup will continue as a European-only series, running from the May event at Imola through September’s Monza race. There will be a full-time grid of 28 drivers all racing

“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, President and CEO of F1.

“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.”

Thomas Laudenbach, Vice President Porsche Motorsport, said: “The Porsche Supercup has been a regular fixture on selected Formula 1 weekends since 1993. And this isn’t about to change: both parties have agreed to an eight-years contract extension.

“This underlines the great level of trust that Formula 1 has put in our concept and our team, as much today as for the last 30 years.”

Michael Dreiser, Sales Director Porsche Motorsport, added: “Formula 1 is the ideal platform for drivers and teams in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup to demonstrate their prowess at the highest international level. The best from Porsche’s national one-make cups come together in the Supercup.

“I’m also proud of the fact that the respective national Porsche Carrera Cups will continue as part of the support programme at several Formula 1 events outside Europe in the future. We will also maintain our presence in North America and even further expand our involvement.”
