Plant Confirms Second Porsche Campaign

Richard Plant Is Looking To Challenge For The 2012 Porsche Carrera Cup GB


Richard Plant will once again team up with the Team Parker Racing outfit for the 2012 Porsche Carrera Cup GB, his second season in the sportscar series.

21 year old Plant impressed during his debut Carrera Cup season in 2011, finishing as top rookie in the championship standings. Derbyshire-based Plant took one podium at Snetterton on his way to fifth in the championship standings and heads in 2012 planning a championship charge.

Plant said: “I'm delighted to be driving for Team Parking Racing for a second season. After the experience I gained last year and the relationship that I built with everyone at the team, it was the perfect fit for a title challenge in 2012. Everything about the Parker squad is first class and I believe we have what it takes to really have a go at winning the series.

“Last year included some highs and lows but it definitely exceeded my expectations. To be top rookie was a great achievement and now I know the circuits, the car and the series I am so much more prepared to go even better this time around. I am working on my fitness and preparation everyday – I can't wait to get back in the car.”

Team principal Stuart Parker said: “I was really impressed by Richard's talent and application last year. He is a great lad that everyone gets along with, and he has the steely determination and ability to win races. We hope to provide Richard with the environment to fight for overall honours in 2012 and I'm sure he is capable of doing the business out on track.”
