The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup VIP car passes a straight at Imola, the caption reads "Furious Return"

4/20/2022

Round 1 in Imola, Italy.

April 25, 1993: A warm spring day at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, and the first ever Porsche Supercup race. Thirty years later, the anniversary season starts here, on the same track, almost on the very same day. Perfect timing!

This year, the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup kicks off on a circuit last visited in 2006. This means that most of the teams have very little race data on this track in the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup – only what they collected at the official Season Test and other test events. It’s part of what is making the start to the season here particularly exciting.

The Porsche Supercup has a long history with the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari – not only because the first race of the international Porsche one-make cup was held here in 1993. It was in Imola, for example, that the current F1® Safetycar driver Bernd Mayländer won his first Porsche Supercup race in 1999. Incidentally, the first race winner in the new series was Uwe Alzen – one year later, he was crowned Supercup champion. The first champion's title of the series in 1993 went to Altfrid Heger.

Finally, the Porsche Supercup is back! The drivers and teams are highly motivated to put on a spectacular season opening race – just as their predecessors did at the start of the series in 1993.

As usual, the line-up for the first race of the 2022 season is top-class. In addition to defending champion #25 Larry ten Voorde (GP Elite, NLD), three-time Supercup champion #4 Michael Ammermüller (SSR Huber Racing, GER) will also be on the grid. The new Porsche Junior #3 Laurin Heinrich (SSR Huber Racing, GER) is now driving in the Porsche AG racing suit.
The VIP car #911 has a new hand on the wheel:  the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, in special anniversary livery, will be driven by three-time Moto GP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo, completing the field of 33 starters.
