Glenn McMenamin will return to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB with leading team Red Line Racing for the 2010 campaign.
The Milton Keynes based youngster, who only started his racing career at the end of the 2008 season, claimed the 2009 Pro-Am 2 title at the first attempt, despite missing the opening races while he had his racing licence upgraded to the National “A” licence required to race in the Championship.
McMenamin has joined the same team that 2008 Champion Tim Harvey races for, and Glenn is looking to learn from the veteran driver “Red Line has got some great drivers and I can learn a lot from Tim Harvey; he’s such a presence in the team.”
The Cleveland based squad have already confirmed Porsche Scholarship winner Michael Meadows, Series returnee Andrew Shelley and Archie Hamilton alongside Harvey.
Retaining the Pro-Am 2 title will be a tough task McMenamin admits, as the competition has improved and got tougher for 2010: “It’s going to be even more competitive than last year, there are seven or eight really strong drivers in the field and there will be some great racing. I’m really looking forward to another good year.”
McMenamin has already been out testing with the team ahead of the 2010 campaign, and this has included his first visit to Thruxton, ahead of the opening rounds of the Championship. Glenn's reaction to the fast flowing Hampshire track: “That was quite an eye-opener.”
Rounds 1 and 2 of the 2010 Porsche Carrera Cup GB take place over the weekend of the 3rd and 4th April at Thruxton, Hampshire.
