Three drivers will make their debuts in the second half of the 2014 Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain, with ex-British GT racer Jordan Witt and Australian driver Richard Muscat making their first appearances in the series at Snetterton this weekend. 2013 Formula Ford GB superstar Dan Cammish is set to race in the final event of the season on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix layout.
Twenty Two-year-old Muscat hails from Melbourne and 2014 marks only his third year in car racing. He was the victor of the Australian Porsche 944 Challenge in 2012 and then went on to win the 2013 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Australia. He is presently contesting the Australian GT Championship.
Muscat is utilising the summer months to gain experience in European racing and last weekend contested the majestic Spa 24 Hours. He will pilot the Guest Car being operated this weekend by Redline Racing. The Australian has already set himself high aspirations for this meeting, saying, “Hopefully we can challenge for a win this weekend.”
Twenty Three-year-old Witt will also compete on behalf of Redline Racing. Since running in the GTC class of the ever competitive British GT championship in 2011, he has become part of the Chevron Cars Racing operation. He has already gained experience of the unique Type 991 GT3 Cup car in 2014, running in the GT Cup during that series’ recent round at Snetterton.
Head of Redline Racing, Simon Leonard has high hopes for his charge, commenting to Motorsport News “We will see how this weekend goes but it could lead to a drive until the end of the year.”
Twenty Five-year-old Cammish has to wait somewhat longer for his first chance to compete in the Carrera Cup GB. Having obliterated the rest of the field during his 2013 Formula Ford GB campaign, he has moved into the GT4 class of the British GT Championship, racing for Team Parker Racing.
It is for that very same team that Cammish will drive during the finale at Brands Hatch on the undulating Grand Prix layout in October. Following a test at Snetterton recently, the youngster is excited about the opportunity, telling Motorsport News “I am looking forward to the chance to race in the Carrera Cup GB. My seasons experience in the 911 in British GT should stand me in good stead.”
