Meadows moves to Blancpain Endurance
Two-time Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion Michael Meadows will switch to the Blancpain Sprint and Endurance series this year, driving a WRT Audi R8.
The 28-year-old will share the car with Stuart Leonard, with Robin Frijns joining them for the longer races. Meadows was part of the crew that won the Dubai 24 Hours earlier this year.
“The Blancpain Sprint Series is going to be really tough but I’m looking forward to it,” he said.
“The Dubai race was important – we wanted to use it as a prolonged test session to get to know the team and car but we still wanted to win. It shows what a great team it is that we rocked up and were able to win.
“With endurance racing a lot of it is down to luck, it can be like a lottery, so it will be difficult. My personal goal is to be mixing it with the guys who are setting the pace.”
This will be the first time in six years Meadows hasn’t raced in the Carrera Cup, which he won in 2012 and 2013.
