The test in Monza took place about a month before the debuts in the Super Cup season in 2021. All eight races will be side events for the 2021 Formula One season, with the first scheduled for May 20-23 at the Circuit de Monte Carlo. There will also be competitions at Circuit Paul Ricard, Red Bull Ring, Silverstone, Hungaroring, Spa-Francorchamps and Zandvoort. The season finale is scheduled in Monza on September 10-12.
In the 2021 season, a brand new 911 GT3 Cup racing car will debut. Based on the latest 992 generation 911, the new GT3 Cup comes with important changes. It is wider than its predecessor thanks to the Turbo-spec body and has a new, eleven-stage adjustable rear wing for improved aerodynamics.
Porsche has also switched to a heavy-duty aluminum construction, with only 30% of the car’s structure already made of steel. The doors, tailgate and tailgate are made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic for further weight loss.
The naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine has been massaged to deliver 510 horsepower, 15 horsepower more than the previous model. The torque is 470 Nm. All this power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a six-speed serial transmission.
