Jelley confirms Porsche Carrera Cup return
Former British touring car racer Stephen Jelley will return to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB this year with Team Parker Racing.
Jelley, 33, was a winner in his first stint in the championship between 2010-2011, but failed to add to his tally of victories on his return to the series last year, finishing fifth in the standings.
“I found there was a bit of expectation on me from outside sources that I should have been a championship contender last year,” said Jelley. “I just concentrated on each weekend at a time. Each time I got in the car I was a bit faster, or a bit more savvy with the set-up.
“I learned a lot and I’m in a stronger position to go better this year. I’ve always had a great relationship with Team Parker and they are more than capable of winning the championship.
“They’ve made some improvements at their end and if I can improve too we’ll be a competitive package. It was a no brainer to stick with the team.”
