Racing at the British GP this weekend!
I’m really excited to say that I have received a late call to compete in Porsche Supercup at the F1 British Grand Prix this weekend, so I’m preparing to go to Silverstone!
My car will have the same livery as in the photos, but my race number will change to 24. I’m proud to be racing this weekend for Project1 – Fach Racing. The team is a joint venture for Porsche Supercup between the German team Project1 and Swiss team Fach Auto Tech.
I know both teams well – I raced for Project 1 at the British GP in 2016 finishing 4th and for Fach Auto Tech in 2017 where I qualified P3 and finished 5th. I look forward to meeting up and working with my good friends from both teams again!
It would be awesome to get a good result in front of the home fans. It’s a fantastic event and the British crowd are amazing. I hope we can put on a good show.
It was great to hear the news from the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) yesterday that Silverstone will host the F1 British Grand Prix until at least 2024. It’s a wonderful historic circuit and it was unimaginable to think that the British GP would be lost.
I’m really grateful for the unexpected opportunity to race this weekend and I must thank Hans-Bernd Kamps, Alex Fach and Richard Selwyn of Project 1 – Fach, Stuart Parker of Team Parker Racing, 9 Group, Calteq, Venture X, TAG Autosport and the BRDC for their awesome support in helping me get on the grid at the last minute.
I look forward to seeing many of you over the weekend. Be sure to come over to the Porsche Paddock and say hello if you’re coming to the Grand Prix!
