Silverstone is back on the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup racing calendar after a one-year break. COVID in combination with Brexit made being there in 2021 impossible. Now it’s even more highly anticipated by motorsport fans – and for good reason.
On 10th July 1994 – forty-four years after the first Formula 1 Grand Prix at Silverstone – the Porsche Supercup field raced over its British asphalt for the first time. The race was won by Briton’s Kelvin Burt which, incidentally, was to remain his only race victory in the Porsche Supercup.
But there’s been plenty of other success stories on this popular traditional circuit since: In 2010, for example, former Porsche factory driver Nick Tandy secured his first Porsche Supercup race victory here and was the season’s runner-up closely behind René Rast. Sven Müller and Ayhancan Güven also have fond memories of Silverstone: Müller won here in his Supercup championship year in 2016, among others, while Güven, now an official Porsche Driver, took the first Turkish Supercup victory on this track in 2019.
