Chris Dymond has been confirmed as Parr Motorsport's latest driver for the 2012 Porsche Carrera Cup GB.
A former top level international karter, Dymond began his car racing career in 2007, winning the graduate title in the Renault Clio Cup. In 2008 and 2009 he competed in the FIA GT3 Championship, before winning the Radical UK Cup title in 2010. Last season he contested selected events in the Blancpain Endurance Series.
Silverstone-based Dymond enters the Porsche Carrera Cup thanks to support from PPC Motorsport Marketing Limited. Dymond will be joining fellow young racer Ben Barker in the Parr Motorsport line-up and is hoping to challenge for consistent podium finishes.
Dymond said: “In the Carrera Cup it is purely about me with no other factors. The career path with Porsche is very good and it is the best platform for me. Le Mans is where I really want to get to. I'm really aiming to be consistently in the Carrera Cup top three by the end of the year.”
Parr Motorsport Team boss Paul Robe added: “Chris is just the type of driver we want to run in the team. I'm really excited about working with Chris and I believe he has got great potential.”
