The Porsche Supercup series has returned to support the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship, with a new round at Zandvoort alongside the Dutch Grand Prix as part of an eight-race season next year.
AllNews gathered that the 29th season of the Porsche Supercup will begin at the Monaco Grand Prix and will tackle seven other circuits: Paul Ricard, the Red Bull Ring, Silverstone, Budapest, Spa-Francorchamps, Zandvoort, and Monza and that the one-make cup will also have a new car for 2021 – the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup – and the support series has already received a number of enquiries for its 28 permanent grid slots.
The new 911 GT3 Cup car will be unveiled on December 12 and its inclusion would mean that experienced and rookie Supercup teams will compete on a level playing field next year.

Supercup's project manager, Oliver Schwab, said “On top of the great feedback from our established racing teams, I’m delighted about the applications from teams that have not yet contested the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
“We’ll now take a good look at these requests. The primary goal for the 2021 season is to include the most powerful teams from international customer racing and to assemble a grid with a balanced mix of young drivers and seasoned specialists.”
