The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup will continue as a support series to Formula 1 next season after organisers signed a contract that will run until 2013.
“We're proud of the successful liaison with Formula 1,” said Wolfgang DÃ¼rheimer. “The Porsche Mobil1 Supercup has developed superbly on this premium platform and has produced many world class drivers who today enjoy great success particularly in long distance racing.”
The Mobil 1 Supercup is the flagship of Porsche’s 19 racing series and attracts some of the best sportscar talent to its ranks. It has run alongside F1 – the only GT series to do so – since 1993.
“The Porsche Mobil1 Supercup is an important element of the Formula 1 race weekends, and always provides spectators with gripping motorsport at a very high level,” said Patrick McNally, CEO of Allsport Management SA.
