Porsche Michelin GT3 Cup Challenge Australia has long been a platform for drivers – young and not-so-young – to further their motor racing career.
This weekend, we see evidence of its effectiveness on the other side of the globe.
Matt Campbell became the first GT3 Cup Challenge Australia graduate to contest the pinnacle Porsche one-make series, Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. Earlier this month, Singapore based driver Yuey Tan became the second after his Barcelona debut. Later this week in Monaco, Stephen Grove becomes just the third driver to do so.
This therefore means that Grove will become just the second Australian driver to climb Australia’s Porsche Motorsport Pyramid – from GT3 Cup Challenge Australia through to Carrera Cup Australia and ultimately Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
Never before has two former GT3 Cup Challenge Australia drivers raced on the top one-make stage at the same time… something that Grove and Tan will achieve this weekend.
