High Speed Tradition.

It wasn’t clear if we’d see a real Porsche Supercup race at Silverstone this year after the two rounds of the Virtual Edition on this historic circuit. Well, the time has come: Gentlemen, start your engines.

Two back-to-back race weekends will take place at the former English military airport, following the first three events of the 2020 season. The first race takes place as part of the Formula 1 Pirelli British Grand Prix.

Race history in 18 memorable curves.

The Silverstone Circuit has been on the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup racing calendar since 1994. To date, 26 series races have taken place here. The combination of fast and slow corners and top-speed straights is demanding for drivers, their cars and set-up engineers alike. But it isn’t just the track that makes Silverstone so tricky: it’s also the typical British weather that can serve up some interesting racing conditions. Take for instance the extremely flat and high wind Becketts Corner: this volatile turn requires drivers to have all their senses fully intact. It’s exactly these kinds of challenges that add a bit of extra drama to a race; and that is precisely what Porsche racing drivers plan to bring to Silverstone this weekend.

Silverstone is great – I have the best memories of driving it. Of course, I want to win again here this weekend.

#22 AYHANCAN GÜVEN(TUR/MARTINET BY ALMÉRAS)

Current Porsche factory driver, Nick Tandy (GBR) accelerated his career by achieving his first Supercup victory in front of his home crowd in 2010. Last year Porsche Junior Ayhancan Güven (#22/Martinet by Alméras) was the first Turkish winner in the Supercup history. His pole time: 2:02.288 minutes. Can he beat it this year? Will his rival #25 Larry ten Voorde (NED/Team GP Elite) give him a hard time again? Or will both drivers be looking at #2 Dylan Pereira’s (LUX/BWT Lechner Racing) taillights again for the duration of the race? We’ll see how the story continues in just a few days…

Silverstone’s race weekend will begin Friday evening with the Free Practice Session, followed up with Saturday’s Qualifying Session kicking off at lunchtime. Round 4 of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup 2020 will take place on Sunday, August 2nd at 11:25am (BST). As always, every exciting moment will be broadcasted by Sport1, Eurosport and Formula 1 TV. Together with all Porsche one-make cup race fans, we look forward to the next chapter of #HighSpeedTradition at the heart of British and international motorsport.
