DENVER – Pirelli World Challenge unveiled its new 2015 Porsche GT-Cup class on Friday. The class will integrate the introduction of Porsche 991 Cup Cars.
Running as part of the overall Pirelli World Challenge GT class, the new Porsche GT-Cup class will run within the GT Class races and have a separate victory circle presentation alongside that of the GT/GT-A class winners.
“The series is pleased to announce a class that will allow competitors to pilot the new GT3 Cup car,” said Scott Bove, President and CEO of WC Vision/Pirelli World Challenge. “The cars will compete under Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Rules, as delivered by Porsche Motorsport North America with no modification allowed. We anticipate 10-15 entries and look forward to the exciting competition within the Pirelli World Challenge GT class in 2015.”
A Pirelli tire test for the new class is planned for the end of 2014.
