The best and fastest Porsche cup championship – the Mobile 1 Supercup has just started another interesting weekend of racing but this time on legendary Italian track Monza. With record setting number of drivers on the grid (39) this is going to be fantastic two race event a new rule which was introduced last time at Spa. After a very intense and interesting racing at Spa, we are expecting the same in Monza, hopefully with less accidents and contacts between the drivers. Because of accidents in last race, Michael Ammermuller and Spike Goddard are starting with totally new cars this race. In case of Ammermuller’s Porsche 991 GT3 Cup that was necessary because he had serious crash in first race but with the help of his and other teams manage to repair his car over the night. Obviously, the damage is far bigger so the new chassis is needed. Here is the race report with video of his crash:
