Caine Looking To End Porsche GB Title Chase

1 Mins read

Michael Caine has confirmed he will remain with Motorbase Performance as he looks to win the 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup GB. The 41 year old missed out on last season's title by just ten points, despite picking up seven race wins with the team.

The car dealer from Newmarket has finished runner up in the series on two occasions, making him determined to make this season his, saying: “Every year it gets closer and closer to my last year of racing, so I've got to win it this year. This is going to be a very busy year for me!”

2011 will mark his fourth season with the Motorbase outfit. His partnership with the Kent based team began back in 2006, before re-joining the team in 2009 after two seasons with Team Parker Racing. He will have his first major test session in the latest model of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car at the championship's pre-season test and media day at Snetterton on 22 March.

Caine will be joined at the Motorbase team by reigning series champion Tim Harvey, who is making a switch to the team for 2011. Caine believes the signing of Harvey is a real achievement for the team:

“I think the new Carrera Cup car will be amazing and one of the benefits of having Tim as a team mate is that we'll get on top of the car faster with both of us driving it. But I have to beat all the cars on the grid, whether they are team mates or not.

“It's very good for the team that the reigning Carrera Cup champion wants to join Motorbase. It's a big pat on the back for everyone in the team. Motorbase goes racing as a team and everyone is included. This also puts us in a strong position to retain the Team Championship.”
