Porsche Cars Australia (PCA) has announced that Troy Bundy will depart after four and a half years as Head of Motorsport.

Bundy will leave the role in December, after the completion of the 2021 motorsport season and will announce his new role in the near future.

Since joining PCA in 2017, the experienced sporting figure has contributed to the operation of both Porsche Carrera Cup Australia and Porsche Sprint Challenge Australia.

The future appears to be bright for Carrera Cup, after the confirmation of 30 new 911 GT3 Cup cars (Type 992) already sold ahead of the 2022 Carrera Cup Australia season.

PCA’s Sales and Motorsport Director Toni Andreevski was grateful for Bundy’s contributions to Porsche motorsport during his tenure.

“On behalf of the entire team at Porsche Cars Australia, I would like to sincerely thank Troy for his contribution to the successful development of the Porsche motorsport business in Australia,” Andreevski said.

“Motorsport in is Porsche’s DNA, and Troy worked tirelessly on behalf of competitors, teams and our many partners to ensure both one-make Porsche racing categories in Australia thrived.

“Whilst we are sad to see him leave us, we wish him every success in the new endeavours that lay ahead.”

Bundy was proud of their achievements and equally looking forward to the future in his yet unconfirmed new position.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working on the Porsche Motorsport programme in Australia, and I am really proud of what my team and I have been able to achieve during this time,” Bundy said.

“While I am moving on to my next project, the Porsche motorsport programme in 2022 has never looked stronger and I am confident the team will continue to deliver the best support categories within Australia.”

Previously Bundy has had two stints working in Supercars as both a sponsorship manager and general manager of sales.

PCA has confirmed that both the Porsche Carrera Cup Australia and Porsche Sprint Challenge Championships will host two more rounds to complete the season.

Firstly, Carrera Cup will return for the six-day Bathurst 1000 event, before The Bend Motorsport Park hosts double headers for both Carrera Cup and Sprint Challenge to complete the calendar.
