STUTTGART, Germany, Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ --

The Porsche 911 sportscar and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway: two legends meet for the first time in history, when on Friday, 22nd September at 9:00 a.m. the race cars from Germany kick off the inaugural Indianapolis Grand Prix weekend, rolling out for their free practice in preparation for the first ever Porsche-Pirelli-Supercup race on this classic track.

Technical equality of the Porsche sportscars guarantees action-packed racing: Success lies squarely on the ability and courage of the drivers. Nine rounds were held in Europe this year, but the race for the title is still wide open. Two heats on the September weekend in Indianapolis, each yielding full points and prize money for the first time in Supercup history, will bring the decision.

Almost thirty Porsche 911 GT3 Cup sportscars take up the challenge on the purpose-built 2.606 mile roadtrack that incorporates the main straightaway and Turn 1. The race cars from Germany comprise ninety per cent Porsche standard parts taken from the road-going 911 GT3.
