As we reflect on 2023, the focus is already on 2024. With four European destinations and two events in France, the Porsche Carrera Cup France calendar mirrors the championship: thrilling and spectacular. From Barcelona to Portimao, through Paul Ricard or Spa-Francorchamps, the drivers will have exciting playgrounds to compete on.
To endure over time, one must evolve while retaining certain landmarks. The 34th season of the Porsche Carrera Cup France will begin, as always, with official tests. On March 12, participants will not gather at Magny-Cours (Nièvre) but on the Paul Ricard circuit (Var). At Le Castellet, drivers will hit the track to prepare for the opening round.
For the second year in a row, the season will kick off in Catalonia (April 12-14). The Barcelona circuit, the stage for two splendid races filled with battles in all categories, has secured a prominent place in the calendar.
The PCCF will return to the European Endurance Championship paddock a few weeks later at Paul Ricard (May 3-5). In 2024, Le Castellet will not host the finale but the second round of the season.
The third meeting will take place at Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium) during the SRO Speed Week from June 21 to 23. On the Ardennes rollercoaster, drivers will face a true challenge. Over more than seven kilometers, high speeds and legendary turns will unfold: La Source, Eau Rouge, Le Raidillon, Les Combes, Blanchimont – each with its own story, making this place a mythical location in motorsports. At the end of the last race in Belgium, the first part of the 2024 campaign will be concluded, and the summer break will give way to the Porsche Supercup.
From September 13 to 15, the PCCF will return at Dijon (Bourgogne). The French championships will be celebrated with the FFSA GT4 France. Absent since 2018, the Dijon-Prenois circuit makes a comeback to the calendar.
The end of the season will follow the rhythm of the ELMS. A decade after its last visit, the Cup France goes to Mugello (September 27-29). Since 2013, the French division had not visited the Tuscan track.
Portimao (Portugal) will be the final date on the 2024 program. The Autódromo Internacional do Algarve had already hosted the PCCF finale in 2021. That year, several titles were decided in the last race, some even at a photo finish. With the championship always fiercely contested, it’s a safe bet that the 34th season of the Porsche Carrera Cup France will deliver its verdict at the end of this ultimate meeting on the Portuguese track.
