This single-make grid will be reserved for 2-litre short chassis early Porsche 911s prepared in accordance with FIA pre-66 regulations. The 2.0L Cup will be part of three Peter Auto meetings in 2018: Spa Classic (18-20 May), Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or (8-10 June) and the Dix Mille Tours (31st August-2nd September). At these events, drivers in The 2.0L Cup will have a 30-minute free practice session, 30-minutes’ qualifying and a 1h.30m race. To complete the programme of The 2.0L Cup’s first season, this new series will be included in the schedule of a major international event whose name will be revealed in January.
The 2.0L Cup has been created in association with Britons Lee Maxted-Page (of Maxted-Page Porsche specialists) and James Turner (of Sports Purpose garage). It is expected to attract around 40 cars and the aim is to see the make’s former drivers at the wheel of some of these. Following the three rounds held next year in France plus one in Belgium the organisers are targeting an event in Great Britain in 2019. The entry forms for The 2018 2.0L Cup as well as the technical and sporting regulations will be available in mid-December on the Peter Auto internet site.
Thus, The 2.0L Cup becomes the eighth Peter Auto series rounding out an already impressive list comprising Classic Endurance Series 1 & 2, Sixties’ Endurance, Trofeo Nastro Rosso, Heritage Touring Cup, Group C Racing and Euro F2 Classic.
