Jack Falla has announced he will not be returning to the Pro-Am1 division of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB and will move on the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup.
Falla will switch to the stunning Lamborghini Hurácan GT3 and the Attempto Racing squad for his 2016 charge, with the team supported by the factory Squadra Course operation.
Falla will be patterned in the NEC backed machine by former GP2 champion Davide Valsecchi. Valsecchi will be adapting from single-seater machinery but the pairing should be on the pace from round one in Misano.
Announcing the unexpected move on Facebook this evening, Falla commented that, “I am so grateful to be given this opportunity and I cannot wait to get behind the wheel.”
Falla’s first test in the car will occur early next week at Hockenheim in Germany.
Comment: Jack Falla was set to be a top tip for success in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB’s Pro-Am1 division in 2016. This move-up may not initially guarantee race wins, but in order to further his career it was an unmissable opportunity. If both Falla and Valsecchi adapt to their new surroundings promptly, this will be a strong pairing for 2016.
