Ladell eyeing move to Porsche Carrera Cup
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.
