Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Dan Lloyd re­turned to the Porsche Car­rera Cup GB at Sil­ver­stone last week­end for the first time since 2013 with In2 Rac­ing.

The 24-year-old had raced in the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship with Eurotech Rac­ing ear­lier this sea­son be­fore hit­ting bud­get trou­bles and struck a late deal to con­test the fi­nal two Car­rera Cup rounds of the year.

“It was a very last minute deal – I got a phone call on Tues­day,” said Lloyd, who won the Car­rera Cup Schol­ar­ship in 2012. “The team wanted a good show­ing and I’m so ex­cited to be back in the cham­pi­onship.” Lloyd said that the Car­rera Cup is a se­ries he’s look­ing at for next year, if he’s un­able to se­cure a re­turn to tour­ing cars. He fin­ished sev­enth in both Sil­ver­stone races. “I was hop­ing to be in the top three in qual­i­fy­ing so I’m gut­ted to be down in eighth as it’s so hard to race around Sil­ver­stone,” said Lloyd.
