Carrera Cup winner Rees makes the move to Porsche Supercup
Porsche Carrera Cup race winner Paul Rees will graduate into the Supercup Championship this year with the MOMO Megatron team.
Rees finished third in the 2014 Carrera Cup GB points, but was forced to miss races last season due to injury. He last contested the Supercup during a one-off round at Austin in Texas back in 2014.
“I’m thrilled to remain with the Porsche family,” said Rees. “I’ve been racing Porsches in Britain for the last two years so it’s time to move up, and the Supercup is an exciting championship with a great calendar.
“I get on really well with the [Megatron] team. Chris Crawford will engineer my car and he brings a lot of experience having worked with the Konrad Motorsport team.”
Megatron ran Briton Ben Barker to a top 10 finish in the Supercup points last year. Rees added that the Luxembourg-based team was a good fit.
“The package Megatron provided Ben with last season was good and when I raced with them in Austin the car was quick and we were bang on the pace. I’ve won in the Carrera Cup and I really think I can run at the front in the Supercup,” said Rees.
