The Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship heads into a new era with the introduction of the latest incarnation of the hugely successful 911 GT3 Cup car making it the fastest one make series in the UK and supports the British Touring Car Championship with all races shown live on ITV4.
Jack Bartholomew, Richardson Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup: "The opportunity to join the Carrera Cup GB this season and to race on the TOCA package full time is a massive one, and I’m looking forward to the challenge. I also can’t wait to start working with the team as they have shown they can fight for wins in recent seasons and from the moment we first spoke back in December, it was clear how professional they are. "It’s a bit of a cliche to say you want to win as that is what every driver feels going into a new season, but I’d like to think we can be in the mix towards the front, and a realistic goal for me would be to try and secure a top three finish in both the rookie and overall championships. "I have no doubt that it will be a tough year and that consistency will be key, but the fact that this is the first season for the 992 car will level the playing field a bit as it is different to the outgoing machine. It’ll be interesting to see how quickly drivers and teams get up to speed with the new car, but I can’t wait to get out there testing and am looking forward to the first round."
