Junior Program

For seven years, the mission of the PCCF Junior Programme has been to discover and support tomorrow’s top drivers at the highest level. Over the course of two days, each candidate is put to the test on and off the track. Becoming an ambassador for the Porsche Carrera Cup France requires speed, peak physical condition and polished personal presentation.

The Porsche Carrera Cup France
Junior Program

Every year, drivers from diverse backgrounds compete against each other in tests and other activities with the aim of becoming the “Espoir Carrera Cup France.” One among them receives a €40,000 grant and an endowment from our partner Michelin to take part in the upcoming season and benefit from the invaluable support of professional driver Patrick Pilet.

The Junior Program is open to drivers under 25 years of age. Hopefuls must never have competed in a Porsche Carrera Cup or Porsche GT3 Cup race and must have real experience in motorsport.

Paul Cauhaupé:” I’m very proud to have been selected and happy that this year is the right one, as I took part last year. It’s the result of a lot of hard work. I’ve prepared a lot more than I did for 2022. I’m honoured to be joining Porsche because it’s my favourite brand. My childhood dream was to represent this manufacturer. I’ll be giving my all in this new Porsche Carrera Cup France adventure.

Porsche Motorsport
Junior Program

The Porsche Motorsport pyramid is full of opportunities. A proven path to the highest levels of racing, it allows any young driver successful in the Porsche Carrera Cup France to reach the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup and then accomplish new goals in GT competition. At the end of the season, the Porsche Carrera Cup France team will select the driver who will represent France in the Porsche Motorsport Shoot Out, where he will compete against drivers from the various Porsche Carrera Cups around the world. The winner will be designated a Porsche Junior Driver and will receive a €225,000 grant to participate in the next Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup season.

The Porsche Carrera Cup France has enabled Mathieu Jaminet, Julien Andlauer and Ayhancan Güven to enter the Porsche fold in this way.
