Zam­par­elli seals late deal to re­turn to Porsche Car­rera Cup GB

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Dino Zam­par­elli will again race in the Porsche Car­rera Cup GB this year with the GT Mar­ques squad.

The 23-year-old had a dif­fi­cult rookie sea­son in 2015 and strug­gled in the first half of the year with Parr Mo­tor­sport. But a switch to GT Mar­ques for the fi­nal four races proved suc­cess­ful when he took two wins at Sil­ver­stone.

“We ended last year on a high and that was what I wanted,” said the for­mer GP3 driver. “This year is re­ally about con­tin­u­ing the job and prov­ing that we can fight in the top three ev­ery race, not just those two races.

“[Hav­ing switched teams] we were up there fight­ing and that was key to me re­turn­ing this year. I’m now ex­cited to get go­ing and am re­ally look­ing for­ward to it.”

Zam­par­elli ended up sixth in the stand­ings in 2015 but, be­sides cham­pion Dan Cam­mish, he was the only driver to take more than one win. “I was sur­prised I got the sec­ond highest num­ber of wins last year,” he added. “Dan had a re­ally good sea­son – I wanted him back and want to be putting some pres­sure on him this year.”
