Night race added for 2024 Carrera Cup Australia

PORSCHE Carrera Cup Australia has added a night racing spectacle to round out an impressive 2024 calendar.

It was already known that the Australian one-make series would be racing overseas for just the second time in its history, following the Repco Supercars Championship to Taupo Motorsport Park next April.

Now, the full eight-round schedule is out. In short, it’s Townsville and The Bend out, and Taupo and Sydney Motorsport Park in.

“The 2024 Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia Championship calendar has been challenging to piece together, but we are very proud of the outcome,” said Porsche Cars Australia motorsport manager Barry Hay.

“It is well balanced, offers incredible events for our competitors and perhaps the most diverse calendar in the history of one-make Porsche racing in Australia.

“From international events, night racing, outstanding and classic permanent circuits, street racing and arguably four of the largest motorsport events in Australia, it offers incredible value for everyone involved.

“Next year is looking like another bumper year, with new names stepping up and familiar ones returning to the championship, plus several new cars that are due to arrive in Australia soon.

“We are looking forward to working with our partners at the Supercars Championship, Supercars Media and the key promoters like the Australian Grand Prix Corporation, NT Major Events and the South Australian Motorsport Board to deliver another incredible season in 2024.”
