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.”
