The partnership between Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup (the world’s fastest international brand trophy series) and the FIA Formula 1 World Championship (the top league of motorsport) will continue until 2013.
Wolfgang Dürheimer, Board Member for Research and Development at Porsche AG, and Patrick McNally, CEO of Allsport Management SA, were set to sign the new contract right before the start of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Wolfgang Dürheimer said that he is “proud” of the successes that its team-up with Formula 1 has garnered.
He added that the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup was “developed superbly” on this premium platform and has turned out numerous world class drivers who have racked up medals in long distance racing.
Patrick McNally said that he is pleased that the cooperation will continue for the next three years. He described the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup to be “an important element of the Formula 1 race weekends.”
