Herald Sun - Motoring - - Motorsport -

AN ELITE all-Porsche rac­ing se­ries could be back on Aus­tralian race­tracks next year.

Porsche is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the vi­a­bil­ity of a born-again Car­rera Cup cham­pi­onship, which would run as the main un­der­card in the V8 Su­per­car ti­tle se­ries.

One of the lat­est 911 Cup cars is in Aus­tralia for tests, run­ning last week at Sandown.

Michael Win­kler, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Porsche Cars Aus­tralia, says: ‘‘There is a lot of gen­uine good­will in lo­cal motorsport cir­cles for the rein­tro­duc­tion of the Car­rera Cup. ‘‘Our job is to en­gage or­gan­is­ers, pro­mot­ers, broad­cast­ers, spon­sors and of course po­ten­tial teams so we can have a full grid for the start of 2011. as well as to en­sure we are in a po­si­tion to de­liver out­comes.’’
