Porsche Cars Australia has named Angel Flight as the official charity of its two local motor racing categories – Porsche City Index Carrera Cup Australia and Porsche Staff Solutions International GT3 Cup Challenge Australia.

Angel Flight is a charity that coordinates non-emergency flights for patients and families around the country in medical and financial need. Flights are free of charge with Angel Flight volunteer pilots donating their time, skills and the bulk of aircraft costs.

Angel Flight will receive significant branding opportunities within the Porsche motor racing categories with the intention to drive the charity’s awareness throughout the wider motorsport community.

The partnership between Porsche Cars Australia and Angel Flight was shaped by Michael Loccisano – competitor in the Porsche City Index Carrera Cup Australia championship and Angel Flight volunteer pilot.

“I am really pleased that Porsche has acknowledged the vital service that Angel Flight delivers. This initiative provides an opportunity to spread the word to the broader motorsport community which in turn will reach out to more Australians who can benefit from Angel Flight services,” said Loccisano.

“I am thrilled to combine my passions of flying and motorsport to help Angel Flight. I have been an Angel Flight pilot since 2004. I read an article about the charity and signed up the very next day.”

The Porsche City Index Carrera Cup continues this weekend with Round 5 of the championship to be held at the Townsville street circuit.
