Carreras ready to roar again
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.’’
