Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

For­mer Porsche Car­rera Cup GB cham­pion Josh Web­ster will race a 991 Cup car for the first time since leav­ing the se­ries this week­end when he com­petes in the Porsche Su­per­cup at Sil­ver­stone.

The 2014 Car­rera Cup cham­pion will join the Project 1 team for the Bri­tish Su­per­cup round hav­ing con­tested se­lected events of dif­fer­ent sportscar se­ries this sea­son, in­clud­ing win­ning a GT Open race at Spa.

“I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to it, it will be my first time back in a 991 Cup car since last year,” said Web­ster. “I did the last two Sil­ver­stone Su­per­cup races in 2014 and 2015 and thought I would carry on the tra­di­tion. I will be rac­ing for Project 1 who ran Philipp Eng [Su­per­cup cham­pion] last year so it is quite an ex­pe­ri­enced team with a lot of ex­per­tise with good driv­ers.

“There will be no pres­sure and I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing how I com­pare with the GB driv­ers. I’m just go­ing to have fun and I think you per­form at your best then.” Web­ster is set to be joined at Project 1 by fel­low Brit Nick Yel­loly, who is com­pet­ing in the Porsche Car­rera Cup Ger­many se­ries this year with the team.
