Porsche Carrera Cup GB – the fastest single marque GT racing championship in the UK – got its milestone 20th season underway at Donington Park last weekend and round one, the 350th race since the championship began in 2003, was won by Porsche Retail Group sponsored Carrera Cup GB Junior driver Adam Smalley on his championship debut.
In addition to a capacity grid, the season-opening weekend also welcomed the arrival of the latest generation of 911 racing car – the 510 hp 'Type 992' 911 GT3 Cup.
The reverse grid system meant Adam’s win placed him fourth on the grid for race two, and despite a sustained chase for third place had to settle for fourth in the second race of the day, and an overall early tied lead at the top of the championship.
We’re very much looking forward to the next round at Brands Hatch in mid-May!
