Porsche Sports Cup China (PSCC) is set for its opening round of the 2022 season this weekend at Ningbo, combining road car activities with racing for drivers of all skill levels.
Debuting in 2019, PSCC travels across China to some of the country’s greatest race tracks, providing an excellent experience for China’s Porsche enthusiasts. This year, the series will take on Ningbo, Tianjin and Zhuhai before the season finale in Shanghai.
PSCC offers a wide range of activities for customers, inviting drivers to try their hand at a number of programmes designed to develop new skills on the track, and to open the door to those who want to move up the motorsport ladder and race at an international level.
The Introduction to Race Track programme allows customers to experience driving on a circuit for the first time, under the guidance of a professional Porsche instructor, familiarising them with the basic and dynamic skills that are required on-track. For the first time in 2022, the all-electric Porsche Taycan will have its own dedicated Introduction to Race Track sessions.
The Porsche Drivers Competition represents a step-up, providing a more challenging experience. This programme offers two 30-minute practice sessions, before drivers go against the clock to test their abilities to the limit. Competitors can take on a single lap time trial, or push themselves with three timed laps on-track.
For the more experienced racer, the Porsche Sprint Challenge China gives drivers the opportunity to go wheel to wheel with each other in a full racing programme. They will embark on two practice sessions ahead of qualifying, before competing in a pair of 30-minute races.
The Porsche Sprint Challenge China entry list for this weekend features the biggest GT4 grid to date, with seven cars, four of those being the new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport. Shanghai-based squad Absolute Racing also return to the grid with Hangcheng Liu at the wheel of the #992 Porsche 911 GT3 R.
2022 sees the debut of the Dealer Trophy, allowing dealer-supported entries to challenge for victory throughout the championship, not just for overall wins but across the season to become the first Dealer Trophy champion.
Open to all Porsche owners, the Porsche Parade offers the chance for drivers to join their fellow enthusiasts on a lap of the circuit, giving an excellent opportunity for some incredible photos and to share their passion for Porsche.
