Corresponding with a record level of participation by Porsche PAYCE Carrera Cup Australia graduates, each remaining round of the 2019 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup will also be shown live on FOX Sports Australia this year.
To be sponsored by Porsche Cars Australia, the 9 remaining rounds will air live on FOX Sports 506 with a majority of them in prime-time on a Sunday evening, Australian time.
Highlights of the opening round held in Spain aired on FOX Sports last week.
This year, reigning Porsche Carrera Cup Australia champion and new Porsche Junior Jaxon Evans will be joined by the full season by TAG Heuer Pro-Am champion Stephen Grove, the most experienced Carrera Cup Australia driver Marc Cini and Aussie young-gun Joey Mawson at each round.
The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is the pinnacle of Porsche’s global one-make program with each of the 10 rounds supporting a round of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship.
The announcement ensures Australian fans and supporters of the local contingent will be able to watch the always-competitive Supercup racing live and in HD, on the same network that shows every round of Porsche PAYCE Carrera Cup Australia.
“We are very pleased to have reached an agreement with FOX Sports to showcase the 2019 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup live this year,” said Porsche Cars Australia Motorsport Manager, Troy Bundy.
“With the addition of Jaxon, Stephen, Marc and Joey to the grid and memories of what was achieved by Matt Campbell two years ago still fresh in people’s minds, interest locally in Supercup has never been higher.
“We are sure the addition of each round of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup to the FOX Sports programming will offer local fans sensational racing and showcase what our fantastic Carrera Cup Australia competitors are doing on the global stage.”
The 2019 championship continues this weekend at the iconic Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo, with live coverage on FOX Sports 506 commencing at 6:25pm AET this Sunday May 26.
