Racing at Silverstone this weekend
The Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship moves on to Silverstone this weekend with Rounds 11 & 12 as support races to the World Endurance Championship.
Rounds 9 & 10 were held at Thruxton Circuit 17/18 August. We qualified P2 and finished P2 in both races. Although we qualified only 6/100ths off pole, in the races we didn’t have the pace to challenge for the wins. We’ll try again this weekend!
Having missed the first two rounds, we’re now 3rd in the Championship standings, 11 points off 2nd place, so it’s all about collecting as many points as possible in the final 6 races of the season.
I’m really looking forward to racing on the Silverstone GP Circuit. It’s a great track to drive and a challenge to get everything just right over such a long lap (3.667 miles).
The schedule this weekend is:
Friday 30th August
09:00 – 09:40 Free Practice 1
13:50 – 14:30 Free Practice 2
Saturday 31st August
10:10 – 10:40 Qualifying
13:05 – 13:40 Race 1
Sunday 1st September
10:05 – 10:40 Race 2
Both races will be streamed live on the Porsche website.
Huge thanks to everyone at Team Parker Racing and to my sponsor partners, 9 Group, Calteq, TAG Autosport, Whittlebury Hall, and Penguin London. Thanks too for all your messages of support, I hope to see many of you in the Porsche Paddock at Silverstone this weekend!
