Butcher Set For Full Porsche Campaign

1 Mins read

Scotsman Rory Butcher has confirmed he will contest his first full season in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB in 2011. The former Formula Ford Championship winner is the latest big name to join the championship and will run with the Celtic Speed team.

Butcher is targeting glory in the pro-am1 category this season with the Scottish team, before hoping to stay in the series and move into the pro category in 2012. The 23 year old has competed in the series at his home circuit Knockhill in both 2008 and 2009, finishing in the top six in all four races he has entered.

Butcher from Kirkcaldy commented: “The Carrera Cup is a great move towards where I want to be as a professional sports and GT racer. We've got a strong package together. For this season it will be good to start in pro-am1 and then look to move up next year. The Carrera Cup is the best place to get my name about and my aim for this year is to win pro-am1. But it's going to be tough.”

Butcher is happy to be working again with team-mate Tommy Dreelan, adding: “Tommy has been a big support to me and I owe it all to him. He has supported my career for the last five years and I hope to help the Celtic team establish itself towards the front of the grid. It's going to be a very competitive season but I'd like to be able to fight it out with the pro drivers, especially at my home track of Knockhill.”
