Integrates the Porsche 991 Cup models.

Pirelli World Challenge announced today a new Porsche GT-Cup class with competition slated to begin for the 2015 season. The class will integrate the introduction of Porsche 991 Cup Cars, comparable to the cars in the photo above.

Running as part of the overall Pirelli World Challenge GT class, the new Porsche GT-Cup class will run within the GT Class races and have a separate victory circle presentation alongside that of the GT/GT-A class winners.

"The series is pleased to announce a class that will allow competitors to pilot the new GT3 Cup car," said Scott Bove, President and CEO, WC Vision/Pirelli World Challenge. "The cars will compete under Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Rules, "as delivered" by Porsche Motorsport North America with no modification allowed. We anticipate 10-15 entries and look forward to the exciting competition within the Pirelli World Challenge GT class in 2015."

A Pirelli tire test for the new class is planned.
