Porsche has announced incentives totalling $225,000 for participation in the 2020 Carrera Cup season.
The figure, said to be a record, represents the sum of travel rebates for the two furthest flung rounds and participation rebates for each half of the campaign.
The travel rebates apply for Rounds 4 and 5 in Townsville and Darwin, respectively.
To encourage entry in each of Rounds 1 to 4, and then Rounds 5 to 8, a $120,000 participation pool is on offer.
“Offering our drivers, teams and customers this record financial support is hugely gratifying,” said Porsche Cars Australia’s Head of Motorsport, Troy Bundy.
“None of this would be possible without Porsche’s ongoing commitment to Australian motorsport and our partners such as Payce who recently renewed their sponsorship of the series until the end of 2021.
“Having celebrated 15 seasons of Carrera Cup this year, Porsche is looking forward to an exciting 2020 with improved calendars, television packages, prizes as well the highly regarded Michelin Junior Driver Development program.”
The season starts at the Superloop Adelaide 500 on February 20-23.
