Porsche Carrera Cup North America Presented by the Cayman Islands will conclude its inaugural season with a triple-header at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, with a third race also being added to the Porsche SportsCar Together Festival at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The two triple-header weekends, set for Nov. 11-12 and Sept.. 10-12, respectively, replace the Toronto Indy weekend that was previously canceled due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

“We were unfortunately unable to get across the border in order to compete in Canada this year,” said series manager Brian Blocker.

“However, working closely with IMSA, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, we believe we have given our competitors not only a full-season but also a dramatic stage on which the championship will be decided.

“No one could ask for more dramatic or more iconic venues to crown the inaugural champions of the Porsche Carrera Cup North America Presented by the Cayman Islands than Road America, three races at Indy, two at Virginia International Raceway and what I expect will be a no-holds-barred battle for the title in three rounds at our home track in Atlanta.”

The approval of the additional races fulfills the series’ 16-race calendar, which kicked off at Sebring International Raceway in March and has since seen trips to Circuit of The Americas and Watkins Glen International.

Road America is next up on the schedule, set for Aug. 6-8, as part of a traditional double-header weekend.
