Get Race Fit Weekend
I hope you’re all keeping well and looking forward to the new race season!
I was very lucky to be one of the drivers to attend a Get Race Fit weekend with Mark Webber last weekend and had to get a photo with the legend himself! He’s amazingly fit and a great role model to young drivers. Can’t wait to see him drive the Porsche 919 this season, it’s going to be a great year for Porsche!
I’m delighted to announce that I will be joining Redline Racing for my debut season as the Porsche Scholar in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB. Here’s a link to the Porsche press release and a photo with Simon Leonard, my new team boss!
Redline Racing are the most successful team in the Championship’s history so I know I’ll benefit from their vast experience. I’m also very happy that current champion Michael Meadows, who has won the championship for the past two years will be my team mate. I have a lot to learn this year and to be able to race alongside and learn from Michael is a great opportunity.
I’d like to thank all the team at Porsche Motorsport GB for the scholarship opportunity and to all my partners for their continued support. Special thanks to my headline partner James Palmer of the Nine Group whose distinctive purple and white colours will again form the base livery of my race car.
The first test with the team will be at the championship launch event at Silverstone on the 18th March and the first race weekend starts 10 days later at Brands Hatch. I am very excited to get the season underway and can’t wait to get out on track in the new car!
