Porsche Sprint Challenge Southern Europe 2025 opts for stability

Updated: May 2

-              New class in the Sport Division specifically for rookies

-              Even stronger marketing opportunities for drivers and teams

Zonhoven, April 26, 2024. As previously communicated, the Porsche Sprint Challenge Southern Europe will be in its third year in 2025, with four meetings, equally divided between Portugal and Spain. The competition opts for continuity in terms of the calendar as well as the sporting and logistical course, but of course constant evaluation by the promoter also ensures adjustments where necessary. “The 2024 season was a great success, but 2025 must be even better,” is the philosophy of the promoter, said Series Manager Lars Plato.

Never change a winning team and that also applies to a competition,” says Lars Plato, who is already preparing for the new season, which starts on January 18 and 19 in Portimão, in the Portuguese Algarve. “The broad lines remain the same and of course the basis of our winter competition is, on the one hand, the preparation for the competitions later that same season and we offer motorsport fun at a time when this is almost impossible in the rest of Europe. We note that in addition to the gentlemen drivers, a lot of young talent comes to prepare with us. And that preparation naturally aims at the various Porsche Carrera Cups in Europe and the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup. In that regard, we will adjust the qualifying format for next season. We will no longer opt for two sessions of fifteen minutes, but one session of half an hour, to be on the same line as Porsche's other competitions.”

The Porsche Sprint Challenge Southern Europe has a lot of young drivers, especially in the Sport Division, and that is why there will also be a Rookie Class next season, in which the young drivers will compete. This Rookie Class is in addition to the general classification in the Sport Division and the ProAm Class, as was the case the past two seasons. In the Sport Division, all drivers do it without ABS on the various Porsche 911 GT3 Cup - Type 992. In the Club Division nothing changes for the time being, with a class for the AM drivers with the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup - Type 992 - and they do it with ABS. The GT4 Class will of course also continue to exist.

Test days and more marketing opportunities

  “I would also like to reiterate that there will be two tests in Estoril prior to the season,” said Lars Plato. “These test days on December 2 and 3 in Estoril offer the teams an excellent opportunity to prepare for the coming season of the Porsche Sprint Challenge Southern Europe, but also for the other Porsche competitions, and of course to make decisions towards that season 2025 by organizing an internal shoot-out. Teams thus have the opportunity to test with new riders and riders have the opportunity to get to know a new team before signing their contracts for the coming winter and summer season.”

Last but not least, there are enhanced sponsorship return and sponsor activation options, including improved hospitality options, onBoard cameras and Track Banners.
