Usually the Porsche Supercup teams would have met in March at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya to awaken their Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars from winter hibernation; and driven the second race in early May. But nothing is usual about this season.
The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup field doesn’t normally run on the Catalonian track so late in the year. With the season already in full swing and the Barcelona summer temperatures soaring, it seems to fit the pressure level that the participants are facing headed into Round 6. It’s definitely the smoking phase of the championship where every point counts.
