Good start to the season – now on to Brands Hatch GP
We had a great start to the season at Donington last weekend, as I won the first race. It was an awesome result for Team Parker Racing as all three drivers on the podium were TPR drivers! In the second, reverse grid race I finished P3. Great work from everyone to get such a great start to the season and a special thank you to my brilliant mechanic Darrio who put in a huge amount of hard work on my car set up.
So this weekend we move on to Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit, another fast and mostly flowing circuit which feels great to drive in the 485hp Porsche GT3 Cup Car. We are expecting the weather to be even hotter than last weekend and that was really hot. No air conditioning in the race car and several layers of fireproof clothing takes trying to stay cool to another level!
Once again, sadly, no spectators are allowed at the BTCC event this weekend. It’s such a shame and we can’t wait to see race fans back at the circuits.
The schedule this weekend is:
Saturday 8th August
10:55 Qualifying (30 minutes)
Sunday 9th August
11:30 Race 1 – 17 laps
15:55 Race 2 – 17 laps (reverse grid)
As last week, I’m sure both Porsche races will be shown live on ITV4HD. The coverage starts at 10:20am.
Thanks for all the great support and messages and thank you to my loyal partners Calteq, Dextra, Penguin London, JPR Race Prep and Whittlebury Park.
Have a great weekend!
