Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific has announced the appointment of Alexandre Imperatori as the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia Series Manager, effective immediately. In this capacity, Imperatori, an accomplished racer, brings his wealth of experience to the One-Make Series department.

As Porsche Carrera Cup Asia enters its 21st season in 2024, the campaign will commence at the Shanghai International Circuit, supporting the Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix on April 20-21. Imperatori, previously a coach for the series’ Talent Pool program since 2016, boasts a racing career that includes a championship title in 2012, multiple podium finishes at the Macau GT Cup, and notable achievements at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring and the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

Supported by One-Make Series Senior Manager Boya Qi, Imperatori is set to lead the series through a compelling season. Qi, in turn, will shift her focus to coordinating other One-Make championships in the region, such as Porsche Sprint Challenge China, Porsche Sprint Trophy Thailand, and the recently introduced Porsche Sprint Challenge Indonesia.

The Porsche Carrera Cup Asia’s 2024 season will feature races in Shanghai, Suzuka, Thailand (Chang International Circuit and Bangsaen Street Circuit), Sepang, Singapore’s Marina Bay Circuit, and a season finale back in Shanghai. Notably, the series will make history with an invitational Endurance Championship during two events on the existing calendar – Sepang and the Shanghai finale.

Alexandre Imperatori expressed his enthusiasm for the role, stating, “I’m excited to continue developing the Carrera Cup Asia and ensuring it remains the benchmark for One-Make Series in our region and globally.”

Alexandre Gibot, Managing Director of Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific Ltd., shared his delight about Imperatori’s appointment, emphasizing the strategic move for the One-Make Series program. Gibot looks forward to collaborating with Imperatori to uphold the success of Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, marking a significant moment as the first One Make Series in the Porsche family to have a previous champion as the Manager. The announcement aligns with Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific’s commitment to strengthening its single-make championships in the coming year.
