Porsche Championship Launch Day at Silverstone

The PDA kicked off the 2011 season on Sunday 27th February with a track day at Silverstone. Taking place on the (very wet!) Grand Prix circuit, the event got the 2011 Porsche Championship off to a flying start, with full grid line up of Boxsters and 924’s. It was also a chance for the drivers to blow away the winter cobwebs, and shake down their cars before the first race of the season, again at Silverstone, on 9th / 10th April 2011.

2011 Race Calendar

The confirmed race calendar for the 2011 BRSCC Porsche Championship has been released by the PDA. Book-ended by two of the UK's most prestigious circuits, Silverstone and Donington Park, the season will once again comprise eight meetings between April and October, all of which will be double headers!

The only change from the previously released provisional calendar is to the May meeting, which has moved from Anglesey to Donington Park....

Confirmed 2011 Calendar as follows:

April 9th / 10th - Silverstone (National circuit)

May 14th / 15th - Donington Park

June 4th / 5th - Cadwell Park

June 18th - Oulton Park

July 16th / 17th - Rockingham

August 13th / 14th - Brands Hatch

September 17th / 18th - Snetterton 300

October 15th / 16th - Donington Park

DESIGN 911.COM BACKS BRSCC PORSCHE CHAMPIONSHIP

The BRSCC and Porscheracing Drivers Association (PDA) have today announced a deal with Design 911 for them to be the title sponsors of the BRSCC Porsche Championship in 2011.

For the new season, which starts with a double header at the BRSCC’s Silverstone meeting on the 9/10th April, the championship will be called the 'Design911.com Porsche Championship'. The addition of a class for the Boxster S to the long-standing and original 924’s breathed new life into the championship in 2010 and that growth looks set to continue this year and beyond.

Design 911 is one of the largest dedicated replacement and performance parts suppliers of Porsche products in the UK. Their delivery network expands to over 120 countries world wide and they supply products direct to retail, independent garages and workshops. With over 22,000 different parts in stock and with the best logistics systems they deliver what their customers need fast.

Design 911’s Karl Chopra commented “We are very proud to associate our name with this growing championship which has a great future and a clear synergy with our business. Design 911 has set new levels of achievement in a highly competitive market and we have enjoyed consistent 20% annual growth rate. Similarly, the championship has gone from strength to strength over the last two years and we look forward to helping accelerate that growth further.”

Boxster competitor and driver representative Nick Hull is as equally enthusiastic about the tie-up, “2010 was a great season for both the 924’s and Boxsters but the impetus the sponsorship from Design 911 will give the championship will really help us all drive it forward. We look forward to a long and prosperous association with Design 911 and the BRSCC”.

Inside Porsche Racing

So what is it all about?

The PDA has taken on a new look for 2010. Alongside the Porsche 924's which have successfully run as a one make Championship for nearly 20 years, other Porsche models have now been introduced into the Championship, which has been renamed the "BRSCC Porsche Championship". There are now classes for the Porsche 924, the Porsche Boxster S and an Invitation Class.

Drivers in every class are eligible to score points for the overall championship as well as points for their individual class.
The tightly controlled Rules and Regulations are aimed at keeping costs under control so that this form of motor racing can be open to all. There is a mix of ages in the series from teenagers to "grey hairs" all mixing well in a really friendly and welcoming paddock atmosphere.

PORSCHE 924 (2.0 LITRE NATURALLY ASPIRATED)

The former 'Porsche 924 Championship' now runs as a separate class within the 'BRSCC Porsche Championship'.

The Porsche 924 is a great first step on the racing ladder, and many drivers have moved on to success in other series having learned their race craft in the highly competitive world of 924 racing. It is also attractive to the more experienced racer, providing close action with the emphasis on driver skill rather than outright power. The Porsche 924 is a low cost route into Porsche racing using standard cars with minor modifications to improve performance. The rules permit an easily achievable power limit which discourages cheque book engine tuning, ensuring that the winner is not simply the driver with the largest budget.

For 2010 the 924's will continue to use the Toyo Proxes R888 as its "control" tyre. This is a full race tyre which resulted in dramatically improved lap times when it was first introduced to the championship. Anyone used to track driving on normal road tyres will be astounded by the grip developed by the Porsche 924 on these tyres.

The Porsche 924 Class in the Championship will continue to produce close, exciting racing for both experienced and novice drivers alike.

PORSCHE BOXSTER S (3.2 LITRE)

From 2010, Porsche Boxsters will run as a separate class within the BRSCC Porsche Championship. The eligible cars will be Porsche Boxster S, 3.2 litre, 986 and 987 models.

The Porsche Boxster is a well balanced mid-engined roadster with good innate handling characteristics. Stiffened and lowered, it makes a wonderfully handling, agile race car. The new race series is for the 3.2 litre "S" version of the Porsche Boxster, which adds significant power to an inherently well balanced chassis. With up to 280 BHP and top speeds in excess of 170 mph, Porsche Boxster racing will be one of the fastest and most powerful Championships in the UK.

The regulations will be very tightly controlled to ensure that the cars on the grid are as evenly matched as possible. At the same time all, the correct racing parts will be added to ensure that the cars are real race cars which will be exciting to drive and race without being excessively fragile. Extreme modification will not be permitted, so that the cars will be equal in power and weight providing exciting, cost effective motorsport.
Some components will be "control" items whose specification is set out in the championship regulations.

The organisers can supply a kit of "control" parts that will enable competitors to convert a road going Porsche Boxster into an eligible championship race car. The kit will include the roll cage, upgraded suspension components, brake pads, racing wheels and tyres.

The kits are now available at a cost of £3,297.90 plus VAT, which includes a set of Toyo Tyres. Using the increased purchasing power of the whole championship it has been possible to provide other items such as Fire Systems, Seats, Safety Harnesses, Data and Video logging systems at a substantially lower price than would be available to individual competitors.

INVITATION CLASS

The invitation class will be open to any normally aspirated Porsche up to 3.0 litres capacity and turbocharged cars up to 2.0 litres. Cars competing in the invitation class will be required to use Toyo tyres but there will be no restrictions on sizes. The rules for the invitation class will be kept very simple to allow the widest range of cars possible to compete.

AIMS OF THE PDA

2010 is the inaugural year of the 'BRSCC Porsche Championship', but the 19th consecutive year of Porsche 924 racing in the UK.

Formerly the 'Porsche 924 Championship', we have now expanded the series by introducing two additional classes in the form of Porsche Boxsters and an Invitation Class to race alongside the classic 924's, ensuring packed grids and close, exciting racing for years to come.
The aim remains the same; to provide cost effective and enjoyable Porsche racing.

The Championship is designed to be a suitable series for both novice and experienced drivers, and now with the additional classes, also provides the opportunity for driver progression.

Importantly, the regulations level the playing field leaving the emphasis on the skill of the driver not on the size of the budget.

There is a mix of ages in the series, from teenagers to "grey hairs" all mixing well in a really friendly and welcoming series. Highly competitive it may be, but there is a real camaraderie amongst the drivers with what goes on in the paddock being almost as important as what happens on the track.

THE BRITISH RACING & SPORTS CAR CLUB

The BRSCC organises and runs the Porsche Championship for the PDA.
Formed in 1946 it has been one of the most influential clubs and main driving forces in domestic motor racing ever since.

Today, with over 40 race meetings and 20 championships under the BRSCC umbrella annually, the Club continues to play a leading role in the British motor racing scene, organising both club race meetings and FIA sanctioned international events.

The Club Head Office is in Borough Green, Kent, just a short drive from Brands Hatch. With support from six regional Centres, the Club runs race meetings at circuits across the UK and is well equipped to serve members wherever they live in the country.

While the Club is very much forward thinking, they are proud of their history, so are honoured to number amongst their Vice Presidents such racing legends as Sir Jack Brabham OBE, Sir Stirling Moss OBE, Derek Bell MBE and Nigel Mansell OBE who all raced extensively with the BRSCC.
