The Monza test took place about a month before the 2021 Supercup season debuted. All eight races will be support events in the Formula 1 season 2021, with the first scheduled for 20-23. May at the Circuit de Monte Carlo. There will also be races at Circuit Paul Ricard, Red Bull Ring, Silverstone, Hungaroring, Spa-Francorchamps and Zandvoort. The season finale is scheduled for Monza on 10-12. September.
In the 2021 season, a brand new 911 GT3 Cup race car will make its debut. Based on the latest 992-generation 911, the new GT3 Cup car comes with important changes. It is wider than its predecessor thanks to a Turbo-spec body and has a new, eleven-step adjustable rear wing for improved aerodynamics.
Porsche also switched to an aluminum-heavy construction with only 30% of the car’s structure now made of steel. The doors, rear cover and rear wing are made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic for additional weight loss.
The naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine has been massaged to deliver 510 horsepower, 15 horses more than the previous model. The torque is 470 Nm. All that power goes to the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential transmission.
