Slidesports to run Cay­man in Euro­pean GT4

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Sa­loon car squad Slidesports will ex­pand into the Euro­pean GT4 Series later this year af­ter tak­ing de­liv­ery of its new Porsche Cay­man Club­sport GT4 car last week.

Slidesports, which tra­di­tion­ally runs cars in the Volk­swa­gen Rac­ing Cup and VAG Tro­phy series, has di­ver­si­fied into GT rac­ing run­ning a 997 Porsche 911 GT3.

Porsche de­liv­ered the sec­ond wave of UK Cay­man or­ders late last week, with Slidesports col­lect­ing its car on Fri­day.

“We’re go­ing to do Euro­pean GT4 and a few rounds of the Creven­tic 24 Hour Series,” said Slidesports boss Mark Jenk­ins. “The Cay­man is a very at­trac­tive car and see­ing as it’s built to be ac­ces­si­ble for gen­tle­man driv­ers it’s per­fect for the longer races.

“We’ve en­tered the Euro GT4 races at Sil­ver­stone, and if the car goes well we could do dou­ble duty in Bri­tish GT that week­end too [Euro GT4 sup­ports Bri­tish GT’S Sil­ver­stone 500 event on June 11-12]. We’ll wait and see.”

Other re­cip­i­ents of Cay­mans in­clude Simp­son Mo­tor­sport, which will field the car for Nick Jones and Scott Malvern in Bri­tish GT, and Porsche stal­wart team Parr Mo­tor­sport.
