1 Mins read

Daniel Lloyd ended his first Scholarship season in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB series in a highly credible sixth place despite a tough end to the campaign at Brands Hatch.

The Team Parker Racing driver ran fifth early on in the opening race around the legendary Grand Prix circuit and challenge for third on lap four, however he was elbowed back to sixth. Recovering well, he took fifth on lap seven, before grabbing fourth on lap 12, holding the place until the end.

The second race saw the TNT Post, TSD, Creechurch Private Wealth, Propack and TPA Yorkshire-supported driver get up to fifth again early on, before moving into fourth. Lloyd moved into the podium positions on lap six and ran their for three laps before a mistake saw him run wide and fall to sixth. The Yorkshireman eventually finished fifth after a stunning move on former double champion James Sutton at Dingle-Dell.

“We would have liked a stronger end to the season”, said Daniel, “We’ve had some massive ups and some pretty big downs as well but hopefully the downs will just make me stronger for next year which is the important one. To have won a race in my first season, and had a few other podiums as well, really is fantastic and more than we probably expected when I won the Scholarship.

“I want to say a massive thank you to Porsche GB and Marion [Barnaby – Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship Coordinator] for giving me the chance to race in Porsche this year and, obviously, big thanks to Team Parker, my fantastic sponsors and my family – it’s been a great year on the whole.”
