The Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia is looking ahead to a strong season after 20 new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars were delivered to teams at an event at the Porsche Center in Stockholm. In front of the gathered press, the preliminary entry list for 2011 was released, featuring 27 entered cars.

The event also included a press conference, where reigning Carrera Cup Scandinavia champion Robin Rudholm was interviewed, alongside series returnee Daniel Haglöf and newcomer Johan Kristoffersson.

Rudholm said: “It is a great feeling to see my new car. This season is going to be amazing, hard opposition, great new cars and challenging tracks. Things cannot be much better than this.”

Kristoffersson added: “I tested the car last year and it feels inspiring to head in to Carrera Cup. And we are not here to admire our competitors, we are here to fight for the victories.”

Kristoffersson is racing for renowned outfit Kristoffersson Motorsport, who will be fighting for the 2011 team championship, where the prize is free entry into the 2012 Carrera Cup, a prize valued at 10,000 Euros.

Taking them on will be Xlander Racing, whose team boss Louise Freidestam said: “We want to get the team title back this year, but it is going to be hard opposition from a lot of professional teams.”

A host of big names were taking part in the press conference, including Carrera Cup Scandinavia general Thomas Johansson and MD for Porsche Sweden, Bosse Janson.

Johansson commented: “We are heading for yet another strong season and we find it very much rewarding to see such hard commitment from the teams and drivers on our championship,” with Janson adding: “This marks the start of an exciting Carrera Cup 2011 season.”

Also on stage was head of Carrera Cup Worldwide Michael Dreiser, who spoke to the teams and press about the upcoming Porsche Carrera World Cup race around the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife.

He commented: “The feedback from competitors, spectators and teams ahead of the race has been very positive. We are facing what looks to become the greatest Porsche race ever.”
