Car­rera Cup win­ner Rees makes the move to Porsche Su­per­cup

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.

Rees was a win­ner in Car­rera Cup GB, but will now step up
