Keith Webster has today (6 March) confirmed that he will compete in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB for a third consecutive season.
The 46 year old company director from Hampshire will continue to drive for Redline Racing, the team he made his debut for back in 2011 and hopes to mount a serious challenge for the Pro-Am2 title after only contesting a part season in 2012.
He said: “I want to have a real crack at Pro-Am2 and really enjoy the season. I was so looking forward to getting back in the car when we went testing at Thruxton last month.”
Webster impressed in 2011, his debut year, taking five category victories on the way to second place in Pro-Am2 as the more experienced George Brewster narrowly beat him to the title by five points following a season long battle.
As well as hoping to go one better than this in 2013, Webster will also return to racing on two wheels with a Superstox Kawasaki as well as competing in time trials with pedal power. “I’m doing 170 miles a week on the bike for training,” he said.
Webster expects to miss the Oulton Park and Croft race weekends due to two wheeled commitments as he takes part in a charity cycle ride in Italy. This will not affect his Pro-Am2 title hopes though as only the drivers’ seven best race weekends count for championship points in the category.
The first round of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB takes place on the weekend of the 30/31 of March.
