Monday, October 19, 2015

Columbia, MD—The Porsche Club of America is pleased to introduce a new PCA Club Racing series in 2016 featuring the recently announced track-only Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

As “PCA Club Racing Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport Trophy-East,” the series will be composed of six events each containing two Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport-only races at major road-racing venues east of the Rocky Mountains.

The Cayman GT4 Clubsports’ as-delivered specifications will be strictly preserved and they will race in their own run group, emphasizing driver skill, resulting in close, exciting races.

“PCA is pleased to offer a series for this exciting new race car with our world-class brand of Porsche enthusiast racing,” PCA President Caren Cooper remarks.

Members who are interested in purchasing a Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport to race in the series must be licensed PCA Club Racers and complete an application that will be available soon. A PCA Club Racing committee will select drivers based on recent racing experience, demonstrated skill, and sportsmanship. 

“The Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport race series will highlight the spirit of PCA Club Racing and the skills of its drivers,” PCA Club Racing Chair Vicki Earnshaw explains. “Our 25th year of PCA Club Racing will now have a bridge for Porsche racers to step up to the professional ranks through this semi-professional racing series.”

“We are excited about the PCA creating a new platform for Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport customers to compete in,” says Jens Walther, President and CEO of Porsche Motorsport North America. “The new series promises the thrill of close racing and an ideal path into the various Porsche one-make cup series in North America.”

The inaugural races will be held at Road Atlanta (Braselton, GA), followed by Nola Motorsports Park (Avondale, LA), Watkins Glen International Raceway (Watkins Glen, NY), Virginia International Raceway (Alton, VA), Road America (Elkhart Lake, WI), and finish with Daytona International Speedway (Daytona Beach, FL).
