Slidesports to run Cayman in European GT4
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.
