Porsche GT3 Cup Sebring November Fest Comes to Sebring International Raceway
Friday, June 28, 2019

The Porsche GT3 Cup Sebring November Fest is coming to Sebring International Raceway later this year.

The unique three-race, two-day event will be part of the annual IMSA Michelin SportsCar Encore this year and will replace the Global MX-5 Cup Challenge that ran as part of the Encore weekend in 2018.

“The entire weekend was a success last year and the addition of Porsche GT3 Cup promises to make this another memorable event for competitors and spectators,” IMSA CEO Ed Bennett said. “It is an opportunity for current IMSA teams to continue their year at an iconic venue and for others to enjoy the experience of an IMSA weekend and run their cars on Yokohama tires which is done throughout the season.”

The November Fest on-track Saturday schedule will feature a pair of practice sessions, qualifying and Race No. 1. They will finish the weekend with two races on Sunday. All three races will be 45 minutes.

The Porsche GT3 Cup portion of the weekend will be run to IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge sporting and technical regulations and both Gen 1 and Gen 2 Porsche 991 GT3 Cup cars will be eligible to participate.

The field will feature a maximum of 60 cars and cars will be gridded by qualifying time. The qualifying driver must start race 1 on qualifying Yokohama tires.

Those signing up for this event will also have the opportunity to register for the 2020 Porsche GT3 Cup season during the entry process.

Entries for the Porsche GT3 Cup Sebring November Fest open on Sept. 18 and will close Oct. 22.

The event will be streamed live on IMSA.com and schedule and ticket information will be made available in the near future.
