Jel­ley con­firms Porsche Car­rera Cup re­turn

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
