Irishman Karl Leonard has signed a deal to compete in the 2015 Porsche Carrera Cup GB with the successful Team Parker Racing squad.
Naas based driver Karl Leonard has this week signed a deal to compete in the Porsche Carrera Cup series. Leonard has previously been a frontrunner and Pro Am class winner in the championship but this year is set to make a concerted effort for the title. His title campaign will be supported by new sponsor Aircharge, as well as Leonard’s family business, the Naas Court Hotel in County Kildare.
“I am delighted to announce this deal and can’t wait to get to Brands Hatch this weekend. I know Team Parker Racing will give me a winning car- the rest is up to me!”
Renewed and revitalised for the 2015 season, the Porsche Carrera Cup GB returns this weekend with the biggest grid in the championship’s 12-year history. With 11 teams and 27 drivers announced so far, it’s anticipated that 30 cars will take the first start of the season at Brands Hatch – making this the biggest grid the Championship has seen.
