911 CUP Series
2019 911 CUP Klassische Meisterschaft
The 2019 Porsche Club of America 911 CUP Klassische Meisterschaft (Classic Championship) will include several changes to further distinguish the series from the “Stock E” 911 Class of PCA Club Racing. The 911 CUP Classic Championship will embrace the age of these classic 911s in an effort to reduce wear and run costs.
The series invites all 911s currently eligible for “Stock E”.
This year the series is modifying the weight restrictions and specifying a Hoosier spec tire. Removing some weight and a bit of grip while adding controlled slip angle will result in a fast, competitive and run package that uses less resources while running lap times similar to the Hoosier R7.
The following events are confirmed for the 911 CUP Klassische Meisterschaft schedule:
|Apr 12 – 14||Road Atlanta||02/25/19||✓|
|Apr 26 – 27||Lime Rock Park||03/11/19|
|May 17 – 19||Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course||04/01/19||✓|
|Jun 21 – 23||VIRginia International Raceway||05/06/19||✓|
|Aug 31 – Sep 02||Road America||07/15/19||✓|
|Oct 25 – 27||Daytona International Speedway||09/09/19||✓|
To enter, you must declare 911 CUP as your class and display the 911 CUP windscreen banner and any contingency sponsor decals.
All entrants must run on the Hoosier Street TD tire.
You are allowed to remove 150 pounds of ballast.
The new 911 CUP class spec is effective immediately and windscreen banners will be available at Sebring. Sebring is NOT a points race in the Championship, thus it is a great opportunity for those who may be interested in testing the new spec. Some of the racers who ran the Hoosier Street TD last year have offered to share setup data to help expedite the transition to the new tire.
