Total 911 - - Motorsport -

Cypriot rac­ing driver Tio El­li­nas is your new Car­rera Cup GB cham­pion af­ter a pul­sat­ing fin­ish to the 2018 sea­son on the fa­mous Brands Hatch GP cir­cuit. A podium fin­ish in each of the two races at the fi­nal week­end of the sea­son was enough for El­li­nas, of Slidesports Engi­neer­ing, to take the crown from ti­tle ri­val Dino Zam­par­elli of Red­line Rac­ing.

Lewis Plato and Tom Wrigley of JTR, the out­fit man­aged by cur­rent Porsche works driver and for­mer To­tal 911 colum­nist Nick Tandy, took a vic­tory which was good enough to se­cure JTR the ti­tle of Car­rera Cup GB Team cham­pi­ons for 2018.

Wrigley had an out­side chance at the Pro ti­tle go­ing into the fi­nal week­end, but his math­e­mat­i­cal chances of suc­cess were ruled out go­ing into the fi­nal race, where El­li­nas and Zam­par­elli were tied on points. El­li­nas’ third-place fin­ish, with Zam­par­elli down in fifth, handed the Slidesports Engi­neer­ing man his maiden ti­tle.
