PORSCHE GT3 CUP CHALLENGE COMES TO THE BENELUX 2013

All recent 911 GT3 Cup cars in one championship, six events in 2013

The 2013 racing season will bring the

Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge to the Benelux

An initiative of Prospeed Competition and GT3.nl, with the support of national importers.

GRÂCE-HOLLOGNE –The 2013 racing season will bring the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge to the Benelux. This Challenge is an officially supported Porsche racing platform for drivers, teams and fans in the Benelux market.

ProSpeed_PorscheGT3CupChallenge_911GT3Cup_I

The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux is created in a joint effort with D’Ieteren Porsche Import (Belgium), Pon Porsche Import (The Netherlands) and the Luxembourg Porsche importer Autosdistribution Losch.

ProSpeed_PorscheGT3CupChallenge_911GT3Cup_II

The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux will be the twentieth member of a family that encompasses the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup and various Porsche Carrera Cups and GT3 Cup Challenges representing the Porsche racing DNA throughout the world…

 

Leading the way will be the second generation of the 997-based 911 GT3 Cup car. This 450bhp race car, based on the road going 911 GT3 RS, will instantly make the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux the fastest one-make Cup in the Benelux.

The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux will also welcome the first generation of the 997-based 911 GT3 Cup car and optionally the 996-based 911 GT3 Cup car, bringing together all recent generations of modern Porsche Cup racing in one championship.

The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux is will run several classes. The Pro-Class will see two people take the wheel of a car in the proven Pro-Am structure, joining gentleman drivers with (semi-) professional drivers, creating synergies for both.

In the Am- and Club-Class, running the first generation 997 Cup and the 996 Cup respectively, cars will be shared by two drivers as well, but only gentleman drivers are allowed.The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux is planning six events for its inaugural season and will race on all major circuits in Holland and Belgium.

The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux is created by ProSpeed Competition and GT3.nl, who have a longstanding relationship in racing and both have a background in Porsche dealership organisations. ProSpeed Competition and GT3.nl are partners of Porsche Motorsport.

The new Challenge is an excellent opportunity for commercial partners to support participating teams, connecting their brand to the strong values of Porsche and motorsport.

The Challenge will also become an inspiring and useful relationship-marketing platform, bringing the brand closer to prospects and customers through test drives and events around the Challenge.

Jean Heinen, Director D’Ieteren Porsche Import: 

“The return of Porsche to the top category of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2014 reaffirms the importance of motorsport for Porsche. At the same time 2013 will mark 50 years of the 911. It will be a good moment to celebrate the anniversary of this legendary car. As from next year the drivers of the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux will help us to communicate it even more thoroughly.”

Ray Uiterwaal, Managing DirectorPon Porsche Import: –

“Motorsport and Porsche have been inseparable since the very first car that was built, and today the racing heritage is still an essential part of the company and her cars.

With the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux we now have our own official platform to bring the Porsche values to our customers and fans, showcasing the level of performance and engineering in our cars, both on and off the racetrack.”


Michael Dreiser, Manager international One-Make Series, Dr.Ing. H.c. F. Porsche AG

“The worldwide Porsche one-make series provide a stable platform for all involved parties: drivers, teams, sponsors and partners. We at Porsche Motorsport are delighted that this new GT3 Cup Challenge will take off in 2013 in the Benelux countries and would like to thank the ProSpeed Competition and GT3.nl for their commitment as well as D’Ieteren Porsche Import an Pon Porsche Import for their strong support. Let’s all look forward to thrilling races.”

Prospeed Competition organizers and GT3.nl chose to cut monobrand’s fastest Benelux 450 hp of the 911 GT3 Cup Type 997 II. But first, the first generation 997 and 996 are also welcome to complete the grid. There will be three categories (Pro and Am Club, depending on the level of drivers and cars) and the schedule includes six races on circuits Belgian and Dutch.

Benelux is a union of states comprising three neighbouring countries in northwestern EuropeBelgium, the Netherlands andLuxembourg. The union’s name is formed from joining the first two or three letters of each country’s name – Belgium Netherlands Luxembourg – and was first used to name the customs agreement that initiated the union (signed in 1944).[2] It is now used in a more general way to refer to the geographic, economic and cultural grouping of the three countries.

In 1951, these countries joined West Germany, France, and Italy to form the European Coal and Steel Community, the predecessor of theEuropean Economic Community (EEC) and today’s European Union (EU).

The main institutions of the Union are the Committee of Ministers, the Parliament, the Council of the Union, the Court of Justice, the Secretariat-General, the Organization for Intellectual Property.

The Benelux Secretary-General is located in Brussels. It is the central administrative pillar of the Benelux Economic Union. It handles the secretariat of the Committee of Ministers, the Council of Economic Union and the various committees and working parties. Moreover, it ensures the registry of the Benelux Court of Justice.

VIDEO: Porsche 911 GT3 Cup New Edition of the world’s most successful race car

Stuttgart. The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is the most successful race car in the world. Since 1998, 2,395 units of the near standard vehicle for customer sport were produced.

The new edition of the 911 GT3 Cup is the motorsports version of the future 911 GT3 and as such is the first race car that is based on the seventh generation of the sports car icon from Zuffenhausen.

The 911 GT3 Cup will be run exclusively in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup in 2013.

The car for one-make racing made its debut on the occasion of the end of motorsport season “Night of Champions” celebration at the R&D Centre in Weissach.

The new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is powered by a 3.8-litre six-cylinder flat engine. It generates 460 hp (338 kW) at 7,500 revs, surpassing the predecessor by 10 hp.

A six-speed dog-type gearbox developed by Porsche Motorsport which is operated via shift paddles at the steering wheel for the first time in a Porsche brand trophy race car transmits the power to the rear axle.

The single piece race wheels with centre mount were also newly designed by Porsche Motorsport.

The width of the Michelin race slicks was increased by two centimetres to 27 centimetres at the front and by ten millimetres at the rear axle to now measure 31 centimetres.

A newly developed race braking system further improves the excellent endurance qualities compared to its successful predecessor. The 380 millimetre slotted and inner-vented steel brake rotors at the front axle are decelerated by six-piston aluminium fixed callipers. The rear axle features a four-piston version.

During the development of the new car a particular emphasis was put on the driver safety. A newly designed safety cage protects the pilot in case of a roll or a collision as does a newly developed race seat which is distinctively shaped around the head and shoulders and can be adjusted individually with the help of padding. A rescue hatch in the roof provides easy access for primary medical attention and for the extrication of the driver.

“The new 911 GT3 Cup is much easier to drive at the limit,” says Porsche works driver Timo Bernhard, who was significantly involved in the development of the new vehicle.

“The car is excellently balanced. The new axle geometry is enormously positive for the handling. Apart from that the new Cup 911 is great fun to drive.”

Like its predecessor the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is produced in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen on the same assembly line as the road legal models.

At the Motorsport Centre in Weissach it receives a general set-up for the circuit and is tested by a professional race driver before delivery to the customers. The basic price for the vehicle, which is available exclusively in white, is 181,200 Euro plus the country-specific value added tax.
