Car­rera Cup could get a new team in­flux

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Porsche Car­rera Cup GB bosses are in talks with six po­ten­tial new teams.

Last month MN re­ported that 2015 Le Mans win­ner Nick Tandy’s JTR squad is plan­ning to bring three cars to the class in 2017, and Porsche GB mo­tor­sport man­ager James Macnaughton says more teams could join the grid. “There’s plenty of in­ter­est from other teams and we’re in talks with half a dozen,” he said. “Some of those po­ten­tial en­trants run the Cay­man else­where and are think­ing of en­ter­ing while oth­ers are look­ing at 2018 in­stead of ’17.

“It shows the strength of the cham­pi­onship now. Teams are ap­proach­ing us and it makes sense with how strong GT rac­ing is and the level of our se­ries.”
