The all-new Porsche Sprint Challenge Scandinavia, which will be running under the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia from 2021 – sees a bumper entry of a 25 drivers registered to date for the inaugural season.

The new championship will be organized by the same team from the the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia and both of the series will be running on the same time out on the tracks.

The Porsche Sprint Challenge Scandinavia is aimed towards the younger talents as well as the semi-professional drivers. The drivers who are on their way up from karting and junior formula car championships as well as those who want to take the step from club racing to a racing class fully sanctioned by Porsche Motorsport.

The new series will be using the factory built Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 cars from Porsche Motorsport. A mid-engine car with a 6-cylinder boxer and 425bhp. The series runs with ABS and one-type slicks from Michelin. BoP (Balance of Performance) will be used for equal racing and some exciting cars. For example, previous generations Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (991, 997) can be used.
