The 21st season of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, the United Kingdom's fastest single-marque GT racing series, will feature a thrilling blend of seasoned veterans and promising rookies. In 2023, the Carrera Cup GB will feature the 510 horsepower 'Type 992' 911 GT3 Cup, the newest version of the 911 racing vehicle, and Adam Smalley will enter his second year of sponsorship with Porsche, hoping to win the championship for the second time.
The 2023 Porsche Carrera Cup GB season will feature 16 races over eight weekends. The championship will compete in six UK locations in support of the British Touring Car Championship, continuing its long-standing residency as part of the TOCA package since its establishment in 2003. The inaugural weekend of the championship will take place at Donington Park on 22 and 23 April 2023, with live coverage on ITV. Drivers in three categories (Pro, Pro-Am, and Am) will race under substantially unaltered regulations.
