Guernsey’s Jack Falla is looking to make up for the disappointment of the last Porsche Carrera Cup GB outing at Croft as he takes on the challenge of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup at Silverstone this weekend.
Last weekend saw the 26-year-old in a weekend-ending accident at the first corner of the first race, another driver spun and he had nowhere to go; the subsequent damage ended his race weekend there and left Redline Racing with less than a week to build a new car for Falla around a new body shell.
Despite the recent bad luck Falla is looking forward to the Grand Prix supporting race Silverstone.
“It’s an honour to be taking part in the Supercup round, I can’t wait.” said Falla. “I don’t expect to be in the same kind of position that I am currently in the Carrera Cup because the driving standards are much higher, but I’m feeling confident that I won’t be at the back. I’ll walk away from this event having learnt a lot.
“You can see with people like Dan Cammish that they’re normally front runners but I don’t think they’ll be leading the Supercup race, which is a realisation of how competitive it is going to be. But I think everyone stands a chance and anything can happen on the day.”
“It will definitely a career highlight for me, and one of the best things that I’ve ever done. It’s such an achievement to be selected for something like that. I’m just going to use it as a stepping stone in my career.” he added.
