Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Newly-crowned Ginetta GT4 Su­per­cup cham­pion Char­lie Ladell is con­sid­er­ing a move into the Porsche Carrera Cup GB next year af­ter sam­pling the 911 GT3 Cup car in last week’s taster day at Sil­ver­stone.

A num­ber of driv­ers have made the pro­gres­sion from the Ginetta se­ries to the Carrera Cup in re­cent years, in­clud­ing Ladell’s fel­low cham­pi­ons Tom Oliphant and Tom Wrigley.

“It’s def­i­nitely an op­tion for us,” said for­mer Re­nault UK Clio Cup driver Ladell. “We want to move on from Su­per­cup, so this is the next step up for us on the lad­der. Ob­vi­ously, it all comes down to bud­get re­ally, but it would be nice to do it.

“I couldn’t be­lieve how dif­fer­ent it was. It’s such a well-built car and felt re­ally good go­ing up through the gears. It’s like noth­ing else.”

Ladell was joined by Su­per­cup ri­vals Tom Roche, Jac Con­sta­ble and Am class cham­pion Michael Crees, the lat­ter also say­ing a switch to Porsches would be an op­tion to con­sider for 2019.
