Racing Start – The new Sprint Challenge

The latest addition to the Porsche Motorsport Pyramid is on track to nurture new talent

As reported exclusively in Porsche Post in June, Porsche Motorsport GB is rolling out a new race series that will become another official rung on its enviably diverse and well supported career ladder. The Sprint Challenge is now confirmed for 2020, a completely new series that will act as a feeder for the Carrera Cup by offering a more affordable entry point to top-level sports car racing.
Officially titled the Porsche Sprint Challenge GB, the single-model series will feature the track-only version of the 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, powered not by the new 9A2 Evo engine from the road cars but the mid-mounted 3.8-litre flat-six found in the previous generation GT3. This robust, dry-sumped competition unit will produce around 419bhp, delivered aft via a track-honed six-speed PDK gearbox.
