Changes to North America, USA West Championships Showcase Series’ Quick Impact

Porsche Sprint Challenge Rolls Into 2023 With New Look And Attraction

Speedway, IN | Porsche Sprint Challenge North America is poised for one of its most successful

seasons yet as the program approaches its first event of 2023.

The Porsche one-make series returns with its duo of championships – Porsche Sprint Challenge North

America by Yokohama (PSCNA) in its third season of competition and Porsche Sprint Challenge USA

West by Yokohama (PSCUW) in its second season for teams preferring a West Coast race schedule.

While the series maintains much of its structure going into 2023, it also introduces a handful of new

elements to both championships.

Most notably, PSCNA and PSCUW will upgrade from three classes to five this season – 992 GT3 Cup

Pro/AM, 992 GT3 Cup Am, 991 GT3 Cup, Cayman GT4 Clubsport Pro/Am and Cayman GT4 Clubsport

Am.

For both championships, 992 GT3 Cup entries will compete in respective Porsche models from 2021 –

2023, with drivers aged 16 to 49 racing in the Pro/Am class and drivers 50 and older in the Am class. The

same structure applies to Cayman GT4 Clubsport entries with respective Porsche models from 2019 –

2021, albeit with the Pro/Am minimum age requirement set at 15. The 991 GT3 Cup class is reserved for

all competitors driving Porsche 991 GT3 Cup race cars of the 991.2 generation (model years from 2017 –

2020).

The new-for-2023 championship structure highlights one of the most appealing aspects of this Porsche

Motorsport Pyramid series, with drivers having the ability to advance amongst models and classes as

their development continues. Two champions from 2022 – Aiden Kenny and Laura Ely – will do just that

in 2023. After winning last year’s North American Cayman GT4 Clubsport title, Kenny will join the 992

GT3 Cup Pro/Am field, while Ely moves to the 992 GT3 Cup Am field after clinching last year’s 991 GT3

Cup title.

Additionally, multiple drivers are ready to invest in season-long commitments for 2023 after an initial

introduction last season. Zachary Vanier contested only two races in 2022, including one win, in the 991

GT3 Cup class and will join the 992 GT3 Cup Pro/Am field full-time this season. Former PSCUW

competitor Kayden Kelly will do the same after a promising series introduction with just four 991 GT3 Cup starts last year. In total, more than 40 season-long entries are confirmed across both championships for the upcoming

season.

The North American championship will kick off its calendar in less than one month’s time at Sebring

International Raceway on March 24 – 26, while Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch – an exclusive

motorsports country club located one hour west of Las Vegas – hosts the first doubleheader weekend for

USA West on the 2.76-mile Charleston Peak racetrack, scheduled for April 21 – 23.

Additionally, both championships will join select events this season featuring some of North America’s

premier motorsports series. INDYCAR – which welcomed its first Porsche Sprint Challenge event in 2022

– increases its alliance with the series for three weekends in 2023, starting with PSCNA at Barber

Motorsports Park and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, followed by PSCUW at WeatherTech Raceway

Laguna Seca. While only PSCNA’s GT3 Cup classes will run at Mid-Ohio during the INDYCAR weekend,

Cayman GT4 Clubsport competitors will get their turn in the spotlight with NASCAR one week later.

After a total of seven event weekends for PSCNA and five for PSCUW, both championships will conclude

their seasons at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on October 6 – 8 during the SRO-sanctioned and fan-

favorite Indy 8 Hour.

Full calendars for the North American and USA West championships are listed below, and all events will

broadcast live on FloRacing.com and the series’ YouTube channel.
