Toyo Tires BRSCC Porsche Championship

The BRSCC Porsche championship offers enjoyable and exciting racing for Porsche Boxster and 924 models. It is a very cost effective championship thanks to tightly controlled regulations that are designed to provide close racing, maximum driver enjoyment and a level playing field where the emphasis is on driver skill, not the size of budgets.
Competitors and race teams alike mix well in a friendly and welcoming paddock atmosphere; highly competitive it may be, but there is a real camaraderie amongst the drivers with what goes on in the paddock being almost as important as what happens on the track!

The current championship evolved out of the Porsche 924 series, which was one of the most successful one make championships in the UK for nearly two decades. This expanded in 2010 to include a class for race modified  Boxster 3.2S models to run alongside the classic 924, creating one of the fastest one-make classes in the UK with spectacular racing and attractive cars. A Production Boxster Class was added in 2012, providing progression opportunities for drivers, whilst maintaining the long held ethos of ‘cost effective Porsche racing’.

The championship is highly attractive to novices as well as more experienced drivers with very quick cars combined with close racing. Over the years, numerous drivers who cut their racing teeth in the Porsche 924 Championship have gone on to further success in other national and international championships, and it continues to be a great proving ground for aspiring race drivers.

There is excellent value on offer with 8 rounds in 2018 at some of the UK’s most prestigious circuits, all but one being triple headers and including some support rounds for the new high profile TCR race series.

Every round is televised, with professionally produced stand-alone TV programmes broadcast and viewed throughout the UK and continental Europe on the Motorsport TV channel. The programmes also feature on the BRSCC’s YouTube channel, part of an increasingly effective social media presence.
The championship has its own mobile race centre, providing on-circuit hospitality for teams, sponsors and guests during the season.
The championship is supported by a range of prestigious sponsors, including the long established title sponsor and tyre partner Toyo Tires, Rock Oil, Hartech, Jasmine Porschalink and Ryan Motorsport Insurance.

For 2018, the 3 established classes (Race Boxster, Production Boxster and 924) are being supplemented with a new Invitation class for 924s that don’t fully comply with the 924 class regulations.
