Team Parker takes on Cayman GT4 duo
Team Parker Racing will return to the GT4 division of British GT after taking over the running of Nick Jones and Scott Malvern’s Porsche Cayman.
Jones and Malvern’s Cayman Clubsport GT4 was run by the Simpson Motorsport team during the last round at Silverstone. The pair, who began the season in a Ginetta G55 also run by Simpson, finished 11th.
Team Parker will take over the running of the Cayman after Jones and Malvern split with the Simpson team. Team Parker runs a Bentley in the GT3 class.
“It was always our intention to get back into GT4 but we wanted to spend a year getting bedded-in with GT3 and Bentley,” said team head Stuart Parker. “We have two Cayman GT4S in the workshop which we were always going to run next season, so this deal has sped that up and gives us the chance to keep the Porsche brand on the British GT grid.”
Jones added: “We haven’t done a day with the team yet but I know they are hugely professional.”
