Dunlop Production Cup for Porsche Models…..
Dunlop Production Cup for Porsche is a new series of races for production-based Porsche cars. In order to keep costs to a minimum, the car specification will be strictly controlled, and only limited modifications will be allowed. With the exception of safety equipment, the cars will be standard in profile and construction, and their power output remains close to production specification.
Cars will run in three classes, based on a power-to-weight ratio, all using a control Dunlop (treaded) tyre. The series is open to both novice and experienced drivers, and indeed the former can benefit from a wealth of advice, given in a friendly environment.
The organisers look forward to welcoming you to the grid in 2014 - in Dunlop Production Cup for Porsche.
Dunlop Production Cup for Porsche will be contested over 8 rounds at the following UK venues, plus Spa Francorchamps:
|Snetterton (300)||12th/13th April|

Dunlop Puma Cup
2014 sees the launch of an exciting new entry-level race series. The Dunlop Puma Cup has been designed to offer close racing on a level playing field, within a realistic budget. The cars have a package of six control components that prevent competitors gaining an advantage by spending extra money, with the rest of the car’s construction tightly controlled by the regulations.
Uniquely for a race series, the Dunlop Puma Cup benefits from driver support, with well-known names in the sport offering presentations on race craft, race etiquette and basic car set-up at selected race meetings. With this support, plus backing from Dunlop, Powerflex and other Motorsport companies, the Dunlop Puma Cup will provide competitors with good-value racing and a package to rival much more expensive race series.
