In 30 years of the Porsche Supercup, the series has always been about dynamic energy – whether that’s expressed in thrilling duels, or new race tracks on the calendar. This season it's the Circuit Paul Ricard: finally, we’re back on a French circuit!
The Porsche Supercup is not entirely new in France. From its first season in 1993 until 2008, the international one-make series raced at the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours. This season, for the first time, the action will take place 600 km further south – in Provence, at Le Castellet near Marseille, on the occasion of the Formula 1 Grand Prix de France 2022.
The sun-drenched circuit with its characteristic blue and red stripes first hosted an F1 Grand Prix back in 1971. Spread over a length of 5.842 km, there are 15 high, medium and low speed corners, making the circuit a popular test track. Since February 2001, the official name has been "Paul Ricard High Tech Test Track".
