Team Parker plans entry for final GT Cup
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.”
