At Coffex we’re excited once again to announce we’ll be acting as the Official Coffee Partner of the Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia and the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Australia in 2024. 

The Carrera Cup is Australia’s premier one-make racing championship, open to Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars, racing across some of the largest motorsport events in the country. 

For the first time in the history of the series, 2024 will also see the cup make its way across the Tasman to New Zealand for the ITM Taupo Super400, as well as a night race under lights at Sydney Motorsport Park in late July.

Coffex and the Carrera Cup have enjoyed a strong partnership since 2015, when we first began as the Official Coffee Supplier of the series, providing top-quality coffee, tea and other related Coffex products to help fuel all involved in the championship.

Regarding this year’s events, Porsche Cars Australia Motorsport Manager Barry Hay noted: 

“The 2024 calendar has been challenging to piece together, but we are very proud of the outcome.

It is well balanced, offers incredible events for our competitors and perhaps the most diverse calendar in the history of one-make Porsche racing in Australia.

From international events, night racing, outstanding and classic permanent circuits, street racing and arguably four of the largest motorsport events in Australia, it offers incredible value for everyone involved”

It’s an action packed lineup of top-tier racing, and we’re fully amped for Coffex to yet again be a prominent part of the events…to share amongst the passion of the fans and drivers and to be a part of the excitement that comes hand in hand with such a premier racing championship. 

Top-tier coffee alongside top-tier cars and racing? Sounds like a good combo to us!
