Porsche Cars Australia (PCA) has announced the calendar for the 2023 Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia Championship with eight rounds to make up the season.
In announcing the calendar, PCA also confirmed the popular one-make championship will be the primary support category for the Repco Supercars Championship once again, with all but one round to feature at Supercars events.
That sole round will instead be on the biggest stage in the country, with the 2023 season to open at Albert Park in Victoria for the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix in March, joining the support card made up of the FIA Formula 2 and 3 Championships and Supercars.
The Carrera Cup season will resume in June with a visit to the Northern Territory for the famous Darwin Triple Crown before heading east to Townsville just a few weeks later.
The Bend Motorsport Park and a return to Victoria for the Sandown 500 are the next two rounds on the calendar, acting as the perfect lead up to the biggest event on the Australian calendar, the Repco Bathurst 1000.
October serves as a busy month for the Carrera Cup as the category backs up its visit to Mount Panorama with the penultimate round on the Gold Coast before the season wraps up in style as part of the Adelaide 500 in November.
After one of the biggest years to date for the popular category in 2022, PCA Motorsport Manager, Barry Hay was excited about what the 2023 season had in store for the category.
"We are delighted to announce our 2023 calendar which will see our drivers continue to race at the biggest motorsport events of the year, in front of the biggest crowds, enjoying the best support and television package available,” Hay said.
“Every season we strive to deliver a premium class experience for all our customers, teams and partners and I have no doubt that the 2023 season will arguably be one the best in its long and illustrious history."
Fans unable to make the events can tune into all eight rounds via the live broadcast on Foxtel and Kayo, while the Darwin, Townsville, Bathurst, Gold Coast and Adelaide rounds will be aired live and free on the Seven network.
