Porsche Motorsport supports young racing drivers in many of their one-make cups. On the international stage of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, the new generation can test their mettle against the best Cup drivers in the world. It’s a real career boost!
In the almost 30-year history of the Porsche Supercup, promoting young talent has always been essential. In 2018, the series introduced its own Rookie Programme, together with sponsor APP-Tech, which provides structured training and support for ambitious and talented young drivers from the customer teams.
Up to eight Rookies are supported by an experienced coach, and receive individual training in all the different skills that professional racing drivers have to master. In addition to driving, the focus is on fitness, mental training, personal development, and marketing/sponsor acquisition. What’s more, as part of the "Meet the Legends" lecture series, Rookies get to spend some time with former Porsche factory drivers who were also successful in the Supercup – and get valuable first-hand tips for their own career. The programme gives Rookies in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup the best possible chance of developing into truly great drivers.
