Rory Butcher will make his Porsche Carrera Cup GB return next weekend for rounds 15 and 16 as the series heads to his home track of Knockhill.
The young Scot took part in the BTCC support race in 2008 when he starred in the VIP car, finishing fifth overall in both races and winning the Pro-Am 2 category.
Joining the Celtic Speed line up for the weekend alongside Tommy Dreelan, George Brewster and Bob Lyons he will take part in the older Pro-Am 2 car of Dreelan.
“I got a call from Tommy a couple of weeks ago and I jumped at the chance,” said Butcher. “I’m just so delighted. Knockhill is probably one of the circuits where the pro-am2 car is at its most competitive.”
“It’s that time of the year when people remember the results and it’s a chance to remind people of what I can do,” he said. “I want to build for 2011 and I’d love the chance to race in the Carrera Cup. I owe a very big thanks to Tommy and the crew at Celtic Speed; they run a good car and I hope I can get a good result for them.”
Since his 2008 Knockhill race weekend he has gone on to enjoy success in Formula Ford, winning both the 2009 Scottish title plus the Formula Ford Kent Festival at Brands Hatch. This year he has been concentrating on a career in GT racing.
