Fans Get Chance To Drive Tony Gilham’s Porsche

Porsche Carrera Cup GB fans are being given the chance to drive Tony Gilham‘s #34 Porsche, albeit virtually.

The unique pink and green car can now be downloaded for Forza Motorsport 3 on the Xbox 360 after Turn 10 Studios tirelessly replicated the Collins ReDesign Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car.

Collins ReDesign Racing Team Designer, Dan Bream said: “We were contacted by Xbox 360 Forza enthusiasts, Ground Control Tuning, to let us know that they had replicated the car in the game.

“I was absolutely gobsmacked by the quality and realism of the design and to be exclusively selected out of the 28-car field in the Porsche Carrera Cup is a true honour.”

With news sponsors each race the design team chose to replicate the special edition version that drove exclusive laps around the Brands Hatch GP circuit with local youngster Drew James.

The car is available for download via Ground Control Tuning’s Storefront found within the Forza 3 game.

Along with the availability of the car an A and S class tune has been created which is currently topping the leaderboard times for the Nurburgring track.

Dan Bream concluded: “I think I’ll leave the driving to Tony, as I managed to prang the rear spoiler and front bumper on the first corner of the Silverstone track! – Luckily for me, I was able to just switch the TV off!”

Tony Gilham returns to the track this weekend as the series heads to Snetterton following the summer break.
