Carrera Cup Rounds 12 and 13

18/9/2017

For the second time this year, Porsche Centre Silverstone hosted customers at the Porsche Carrera Cup, which took place at Silverstone Race Circuit on 16 and 17 September 2017. The 911 GT3 Cup car can average over 105 mph around the 1.64-mile Silverstone National circuit; the fast straights are linked by slow corners that provide good overtaking opportunities.

Round 13 saw a win for Dino Zamparelli who completed the 27 laps in a time of 25:49.282 bringing him into second place in the Championship standings. The Championship has never been so close with Charlie Eastwood, Dan Cammish and Dino Zamparelli all fighting for first place. Charlie Eastwood, the Porsche GB Scholar, maintains his position at the top of the standings with one race to go.

As well as the action from the Carrera Cup, two Dunlop MSA British Touring Cars Championship races also took place at Silverstone during the weekend. The guests enjoyed Porsche hospitality which included a guided paddock tour with Emma Watson from the Motorsport Team, a talk from Charlie Eastwood and the chance to get up close with his Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car.
