With a lineup of new pro drivers, upgraded cars and increased prizes, 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship promises to the be the best season ever.

This season all teams will be using latest model Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race car – based for the first time on the RS version of the 911 GT3 road car – and all drivers will compete in identical models of this stunning 450 hp car. This is the quickest version of the 911 ever seen in the Carrera Cup GB and that is what really makes this season more special. You’ll see more overtaking and more spectacular crashes, possibly!

Besides the battle for wining and gaining the top spot in different categories, the drivers are also motivated by the big financial prizes. As well as the battle for overall glory, the contests in the Pro-Am1 and Pro-Am2 categories and the Team Championship will be major features of the season as drivers and teams battle for a total prize fund of over £160,000. In addition, the overall champion, the Pro-Am1 champion and the team manager of the champion team will have the use of a road-going Porsche 911 for a year.

Our favorite team is the SAS-backed Red Line Racing cars of James Sutton and Michael Meadows.
