Total 911 - - Motorsport -

Af­ter a hugely suc­cess­ful de­but cam­paign, Peter Auto has an­nounced the cal­en­dar for sea­son two of the 2.0L Cup. 2018 saw up to 36 pre-1966 Porsche 911s take to the start­ing line-up of four race tracks around Europe in this spe­cial one­make clas­sic se­ries, which was awarded the ti­tle of Race Se­ries of the Year at the 8th In­ter­na­tional His­toric Mo­tor Rac­ing Awards.

For 2019 two ad­di­tional cir­cuits – the Hun­garor­ing and Monza – have been added to the line-up of this unique rac­ing se­ries, which in­cludes Spa and Paul Ri­card. The first round takes place in Barcelona on 5 to 7 April 2019.

It is hoped the 2.0L Cup will have more than 40 cars rac­ing for much of its sec­ond sea­son, with this year’s wide­spread suc­cess at­tract­ing ad­di­tional in­ter­est. There will only be mi­nor tweaks to the reg­u­la­tions adopted for the se­ries’ maiden year, which has been praised for its more gen­tle­manly ap­proach to com­pet­i­tive rac­ing com­pared to other events. It had been hoped a Bri­tish leg would be in­tro­duced to the cal­en­dar for the 2019 sea­son, but the se­ries will now visit Hun­gary, Italy, Bel­gium, Spain and France in­stead.
