Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Team Parker Rac­ing plans to en­ter the fi­nal round of the GT Cup Cham­pi­onship with Nick Jones and Scott Malvern as they con­tinue to de­velop their Porsche Cay­man Club­sport GT4.

The Cay­man ran with some parts of its GT4 ho­molo­ga­tion pack­age for the first time at Don­ing­ton Park. The car fea­tured car­bon­fi­bre doors, win­dows and bon­net and race sus­pen­sion.

The team is still await­ing the fi­nal aero kit and fur­ther weight-sav­ing parts from Porsche tuner Man­they, with the fi­nal up­date hoped to ar­rive in time for the GT Cup event on Oc­to­ber 8/9.

“We’ll do that week­end as a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence,” said team head Stu­art Parker. “Every time we’ve run the car it’s been dif­fer­ent for the driv­ers. So we have a lot of de­vel­op­ment and set-up work to do on it ahead of next year. As a team we’ll be run­ning two Cay­mans in GT4 next year along­side the Bent­leys.”

Malvern, whose fastest lap was just 0.4s shy of the out­right quick­est, said: “The car feels much more racey now, but we were run­ning ex­tra weight and ride height at Don­ing­ton as part of the BOP grad­ing. It will be nice to get the full kit on the car and fi­nally see what it can do.”
