The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup VIP race car on track at Monza, the line says "The final countdown"

9/7/2022

Round 8 in Monza, Italy.

Benvenuti al gran finale – in Monza, the anniversary season of the pinnacle of the international Porsche one-make series reaches its climax. The Temple of Speed will witness the final battle that will determine the champions. You won't want to miss it!

The Porsche Supercup and the Autodromo Nazionale Monza have a long history together. The first time the field of drivers in their 360-hp Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (996) cars took to the Lombardy racetrack was on September 13, 1998. That race was won by record-winning champion Patrick Huisman, who that year claimed the second of a total of four championship titles in his Supercup career.


After the turn of the millennium, the spectacular races and record chases continued on the fastest track in the Porsche Supercup calendar. The first Italian Supercup Champion, Alessandro Zampedri, was crowned here in the 2005 season, although the race itself was again won by Dutchman Patrick Huisman.

2016 provided another day to celebrate for Italian fans: Matteo Cairoli became the first Italian to win a race at Monza. Today, Cairoli is an official Porsche Driver and continues to compete in races on the international motorsport stage.

And the records continue to fall at Monza with the latest generation of powerful Porsche race cars. In 2020, for example, #25 Larry ten Voorde (NLD/Team GP Elite) clocked 191.898 km/h, the highest average speed ever measured in a Porsche Supercup Qualifying Session. This also answers the question of why the Autodromo in Monza is called the "Temple of Speed". In the grand finale of this anniversary season, we expect more exciting high-speed duels.

Monza is the perfect stage for the series finale. We’re looking forward to finishing our first Porsche Supercup season here in front of the Italian Tifosi on the stands. It will be a great motorsport party together with F1!

In Monza a complete field of 32 drivers will once again compete in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. Joining the permanent drivers, Sebastian Freymuth (DEU) will once again drive car #4 for SSR Huber Racing, and Ugo Gazil (FRA) will be behind the wheel of #13 for CLRT. Ombra Racing provides one of four guest starters for the season finale with #29 Leonardo Caglioni (ITA). The other three come from the guest team Tsunami R.T. from San Marino, who also compete in the Porsche Carrera Cup Italia. At the wheel, among others, are the Italians #42 Giammarco Levorato and #44 Johannes Zelger. They will all be cheered on by the Italian motorsport fans as soon as they take to the track to contest the 2022 Overall Championship and 2022 ProAm Championship – high voltage excitement is guaranteed!
