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!
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.
