Pairing Pick Team Parker Racing For BEC Campaign

Loggie and Jones will share a Porsche in the BEC

Ian Loggie and Chris Jones have committed to a full season of BEC this year, in a 2012 Porsche 911 run by Team Parker Racing.

For Loggie, 49, this year’s championship is just a stepping stone to get him where he wants to be:

“It’s part of my progression to the Carrera Cup in 2014,” he admitted, adding “I chose Team Parker Racing because of their success in that championship, they are a solid team, run by Stuart Parker and Julian Westwood, who are both very competitive.”

Well-and-truly committed to Porsches, Tarporley-based racer Loggie will also be racing in a Porsche Boxter in the BRSCC Porsche Championship to get a feel for Porsche sprint races. He’ll also be contesting some GT cup rounds.

“Towards the end of the season, we’ll be disabling the ABS in the 911, to replicate the Carrera Cup spec. The thing I realised last year is that endurance racing is great for the whole team, it’s not just about the driver. From the team manager down to the guy who cleans the wheels, they’re all part of it, they all contribute. It’s exciting for them, and I think Team Parker are looking forward to this season.”

The Scotsman has no qualms with endurance racing; an experienced triathlete he is well-prepared for this season’s 3-hour races.

”There’s an awful lot of effort going in to this in the background. We’re in this to win it.”
