Bringing its signature brand of exhilarating motorsports competition to millions across the region and beyond, the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia has earned an impressive fan and media following since its launch in 2003.

Firmly established as Asia’s premier sports car racing series, 2018 sees a formidable international field of brilliant professionals competing wheel-to-wheel with dedicated privateers. A proven testing ground for fledgling talent and a showcase for the world’s leading GT competitors, today the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia is the number one choice for the region’s finest drivers.

All the elements which have contributed to its unprecedented success are further strengthened in 2021, along with a raft of new innovations, which will further solidify the championship’s position as one of the most successful Porsche one-make series in the world. 


Impeccable services of the highest standards are centrally managed and provided to all teams and drivers, including:

• Transportation of cars, parts and tools from race to race
• Centrally-managed parts, meaning teams do not need to invest in inventory
• Superb track hospitality at each race
• Accommodation and transfer packages
• Pit set-up and equipment

Arrive and Drive Option

While individual teams are welcome, competitors have the option of availing themselves of the unique ‘Arrive and Drive’ concept, which provides drivers with professional support services of the highest calibre.

The Technical Service Package includes highly-trained mechanics and supervisors at each race to service and maintain the car, a pre-season check and pre-event service, pit set-up at each event, and packing, loading and unloading of containers.

This option, provided by professional partner EKS Motorsports, represents savings in both time and expense and means drivers need simply to arrive at the track where the fully-prepared cars await them, making for an exciting and hassle-free race weekend.

Pro-Am Class

Privateer drivers who believe the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia is the exclusive domain of full-time professionals could not be more mistaken. The creation of the Pro-Am Class within the series, designed specifically for those very drivers, affords the opportunity to race against the professionals – a unique chance to learn from the best in the business.

Dealer Trophy

In 2021, the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia will continue the Dealer Trophy, which gives dealer teams a chance to compete as they are awarded points each round based on the best performing dealer driver. With huge success in 2017, the trophy further solidifies the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia as one of the most inclusive, exciting racing series in Asia.

Drivers are welcome

With a truly international field, competitors come from as far afield as Europe and Australia, and as close to home as China, to test their racing mettle in the series. Both young and young-at-heart compete wheel-to-wheel each season, and the friendly off-track camaraderie has become a signature of the championship.

In order to take part in the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, competitors need to:

• Own a Porsche Carrera Cup Asia 911 GT3 Cup (Type 992)
• Hold a valid “C” international racing license
• Purchase the Participation Package
• Purchase the Technical Service Package

The Participation Package includes all registration and entry fees, all costs for logistics, and hospitality access for three at each event. It does not include wear-and-tear, tyres, spare parts, and individual travel and on-track insurance.

Porsche Carrera Cup Asia 2014

The Porsche Carrera Cup Asia embarked upon its 12th season in 2014, and once again raised the bar on professional standards in Asian motorsport, as well as navigating unchartered territory. The 28-strong international field brought exciting talent from across China, Asia Pacific and further afield, competing at Asia’s premier tracks. Making its Asian debut in 2014 was the all-new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (Type 991), with its astonishing technological innovations representing a major evolution of this iconic racing car.

Reigning champions LKM Racing returned with New Zealand’s Earl Bamber, whose meteoric rise saw the 24-year old not only defend his title in a second season of the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, but contest his first full season of the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup by virtue of winning the Porsche Motorsport International Cup Scholarship shootout at the end of 2013.

Bamber’s return helped set the stage for one of the most competitive seasons in Porsche Carrera Cup Asia history. Joining him at the top of the time sheets were 2013  runner-up Martin Ragginger of Team Porsche Holding, Rodolfo Avila of Team Jebsen, 3rd in 2013, as well as former champion Alexandre Imperatori with PICC Team StarChase.

The introduction of the new China Junior Development Programme, the first specifically geared to sportscar competition, further strengthened the ties between China’s expanding sportscar culture and Porsche Motorsport’s more than 60 years of international success. Four young Chinese drivers comprised the programme’s inaugural class – Zhang Da Sheng with Zheng Tong Auto, Jason Zhang Zhi Qiang with Team C&D, Zhang Zhen Dong with Team Basetex, and Bao Jin Long with Team Synsanly – and with dedicated professional coaching and training, success soon followed, with three of the four finishing their seasons in the top 10 overall.

While talent, speed and determination each had a role to play in the season’s drama, so too did Lady Luck. Bamber was always scheduled to miss the two Zhuhai rounds due to Supercup commitments, but the impact of his absence on the leaderboard standings were halved when torrential rains forced the cancellation of Round 5. But the flip side of luck also came into play – penalties to Ragginger in both Rounds 6 and 7 brought an additional hurdle to his championship campaign.

Team Kangshun once again fielded veteran Ringo Chong and Chinese driver Li Chao reunited with Team Betterlife, while newcomer Ro.C. Skyangel made his series debut with Team Yongda Dongfang. China’s Tung Ho-Pin returned for a third season, backed again by series partner Budweiser, while 2013 Class B champion Egidio Perfetti stepped up to compete in the overall class with Mentos Racing.

In Class B, young Nexus Racing driver Alif Hamdan dominated the category with eight wins in 11 races, and became only the second category driver to reach the overall podium when he finished second to his mentor Bamber in Japan. However Hamdan, who also made his Supercup debut in 2014, scoring a point in Budapest, had a tough fight on his hands as he was challenged for each and every point by Dorr Havelock Racing’s Yuey Tan of Singapore and OpenRoad Racing’s France Tjia, who finished second and third, respectively, in a battle that went right down to the wire.

Bamber sealed his second consecutive Porsche Carrera Cup Asia title in the penultimate race of the season, before taking his eighth victory of the year in the Round 12 finale. Ragginger was runner-up for a second consecutive year, while Imperatori finished third, ahead of Avila and Tung.

For Bamber, his second title was just the start of his rapid ascent; in November he captured the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup championship and a month later was named as a full Porsche factory driver, becoming the most successful driver in Porsche Carrera Cup Asia history.

We are passionate about this and uphold and entire philosophy underpinning Porsche Motorsports: Spirit. Principle. Vision. 

The global Porsche motorsport programme includes both works and customer racing.

In the GT category, Porsche also competes in the FIA World Endurance Championship as well as the TUDOR Championship (which includes the 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring), and the legendary Nürburgring 24 Hours.

It was a year of great accolades for Porsche’s global motorsport with high-profile victories in some of the toughest motorsport challenges in existence today. The highly successful year began early-Summer at the 24 Hours of Le Mans where the German car manufacturer achieved its 19th Overall victory with the No. 2 Porsche 919 Hybrid, extending its world record status as the manufacturer with the most wins at the 24 Hours Le Mans. The victory set the stage for the No.1 Porsche 919 Hybrid to seal an early victory in the WEC Manufacturer’s Championship at the home of Porsche China in Shanghai – Porsche’s third consecutive WEC win achieved at the Shanghai International Circuit.
