Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama

How to Watch IMSA Coverage

The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA enters its ninth season with Yokohama in 2017 ready to produce intense competition for semi-professional and aspiring professional drivers in the world’s most produced and iconic race car, the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA)-sanctioned championship is one of 20 global Porsche single-make Cup Racing series and is the perfect platform for aspiring drivers to ascend to the highest levels of competition.

Racing is divided into two classes:

  1. Platinum Cup—featuring the 2017 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car, which is based on the current generation of the street car
  2. Gold Cup—comprised of the previous iteration (model years 2014-2016) of the race car

A Masters Championship is also conducted in the Platinum class. Each class is awarded its own podium at the end of every race and individual champion at the end of every season. Points are awarded by finish in class.
