PORSCHE CARRERA CUP NORTH AMERICA
The Porsche Carrera Cup is one of the preeminent one-make racing series in the world. Due in no small part to the emphasis placed squarely on the driver’s skill. Every single car competing in Porsche Carrera Cup is identical. Same make. Same model. Same generation. With no technical advantage between cars, driver talent and team are what claim the podium. This year, battle will take place behind the wheel of the latest generation 911 GT3 Cup Car. With 16 races over the course of a season, at racetracks spanning the United States and Canada.
Wright Motorsports has joined the premier one-make series with three Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car entries, to be driven by John Goetz, Hutton McKenna, and Max Root.
No. 57 Porsche 992
As the sole gentleman driver on the team, John Goetz is returning to Wright Motorsports with ample experience racing a Porsche with Wright Motorsports. He previously competed in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama after a decade of club racing in the Porsche Club of America and the Trophy East Series.
No. 88 Porsche 992
Hutton McKenna, son of IMSA race winner Danny McKenna, is setting out on his own professional racing journey. After a successful run in the Porsche Trophy West USA where he earned six wins and two second place finishes, McKenna is now stepping up to the next level of competition to race the No. 88 Porsche, which will sport a special livery for the occasion. The car’s look will pay homage to the Alex Job Racing Porsche his dad raced in the 2000s, sponsored by McKenna Porsche dealership.
No. 7 Porsche 992
After winning the GT World Challenge America Am championship last season with Wright Motorsports and Fred Poordad, Root is back to continue his racing career, now as a Porsche Junior Program North America driver. He closed out the 2020 season with seven wins and an additional four podiums to add to his resume, including a class victory at the Indianapolis 8 Hour. He’ll run the No. 7 Porsche this season, as a partnership effort between Moorespeed and Wright Motorsports.
