Creventic will launch a class dedicated exclusively to the Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport, having announced the formation of the Cayman GT4 Trophy for 2019.

The Dutch organization has entered into an agreement with Manthey Racing for use of the category in its 24H Series races, beginning with January’s Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai.

The Cayman GT4 Trophy will run to the same technical regulations as in VLN, with the exception of the series’ spec Hankook tire.

Only the Type 981 GT4 Clubsport will initially be allowed, and not the German manufacturer’s yet-to-be-launched new-generation GT4 machine.

“We are confident, this new class in the Creventic 24H Series, will become be successful and widen the racing opportunities of our customers,” said Manthey Racing’s Thomas Raquet.

Creventic’s Gerrie Willems added: “After the success of the Porsche 991 class in our 24H Series, we thank Manthey Racing for their extended trust in our organization and series.”

An entry fee of €8,600, including roundtrip sea-freight transport from Europe, is being offered to Cayman GT4 Trophy teams for Dubai.
