When the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland and the Porsche Carrera Cup France go head-to-head for the Porsche Carrera Cup Le Mans on Sarthe’s legendary circuit, the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup as the pinnacle of the Porsche one-make cups is not to be missed.
That is why the Supercup enters the grid as a VIP participant. The organisation of the series brings its own Porsche 911 GT3 Cup to the starting line in Le Mans. Bearing the number 993 as a reference to the series founding year 1993, the racing car appears in the current series grid design. It is driven by Max van Splunteren as a reward for winning the Rookie Classification in the Porsche Supercup 2020.
A dream comes true for the young Dutch driver, who has always wanted to drive a few laps on the infamous Circuit de la Sarthe. Van Splunteren will join a field of 53 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars, with many of the drivers whom he knows from the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. But for the first time, he’ll be hitting the track without the support of his team mates.
