On 27 April, Porsche Centre Mayfair was delighted to play host to British racing driver Paul Rees for the launch of his new 2017 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car. Sponsored by Kx Systems, the new Porsche GT3 Cup car was unveiled to guests ahead of the 2017 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup season.
The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is the fastest international single marque GT racing Championship, contended by professional teams and drivers in technically identical 460 hp ‘Type 991’ 911 GT3 Cup race cars. Success in the championship can be a determining factor for drivers seeking to establish a professional motorsport career.
Rees is now in his second year competing at the Supercup and is looking to follow in the footsteps of FIA World Endurance Championship LMP1 919 Hybrid drivers Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber, who raced their way up the ranks in the Carrera Cup and Supercup.
Greg Hardy-Smith, Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Mayfair said “We had the pleasure of welcoming Paul to our Centre as a contestant for our Question of Motorsport quiz night a couple of years ago, back when he was competing in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB. It is great to see him continuing to progress in his racing career, now challenging for the Porsche Supercup. We were delighted to offer our Centre as a venue for Paul’s celebration and launch of his new 911 GT3 Cup car.”
