The 2018 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup season, the 26th edition of the world’s most popular one-make series, will start this weekend at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya as a part of the F1 Spanish Grand Prix support programme.

Compared to the previous season, the Porsche Supercup calendar features more events (nine instead of eight) but fewer races (ten instead of eleven).  Only the season’s finale at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico is a double-header event, all other venues will host one race each. Between Barcelona and Mexico City, Porsche Supercup will visit Monte-Carlo, Red Bull Ring, Silverstone, Hockenheimring, Hungaroring, Spa-Francorchamps and Monza.
