The Porsche Carrera Cup France is the national version of a competition born in Germany in 1986. This cup is part of the main French motorsport championship. Each year, around twenty Porsche 911 GT3 Cup pit against one another on the most prestigious French circuits. Throughout the seasons, the Porsche Carrera Cup France has revealed many talents, allowing passionate contenders – gentlemen drivers – to compete within a professional environment. In 2002, Porsche wanted to give new impetus to the PCCF not only in terms of the race itself but also regarding events alongside it.
In terms of competition, the PCCF’s role as springboard for young drivers was increased by putting forward different scholarship-like programmes. We built on our experience of racing to support French young talents in their career.
In terms of events, we worked on making the PCCF stand out, getting different major partners involved throughout the years, such as insurance company MATMUT for instance, while ensuring an important media coverage and maximum visibility for the event. Developing VIP packages was also one major concern, looking to meet increased demand from teams, drivers and sponsors.
In 2015, the PCCF, still run by ORECA, celebrated its 14th anniversary.
