Porsche engineer Paul Leach will oversee the operation that will run along side its BTCC team.

Team Principal Ian Harrison is thrilled at the deal, will run alongside its BTCC team. “We're delighted and honoured to have received written confirmation from Porsche that we've got at least the two cars we wanted for next season.

“I'm delighted too that Paul Leach has decided to join us. Next season with the new car for everyone, it is a good time to join the Cup but I have no doubt that Paul's expertise and vast knowledge of the Porsche will be an invaluable asset”.

The team is already in talks with a number of parties regarding drives, but would still welcome approaches from both prospective drivers and driver/owners.
