Jamie Orton will return to challenge frontrunners in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Pro class once again with title-winning team JTR for 2020.

Orton started his 2019 campaign driving in the Pro-Am class, claiming three podium finishes in the three opening rounds; He missed out on podium finishes on two other occasions, once at Brands Hatch where he qualified in second place overall and then at Croft when he was forced off of the circuit on the penultimate lap.

From the fourth round at Oulton Park, he returned to the Pro class, taking a second fifth, and second-place finish at the Cheshire circuit, ending the year eighth place in the championship.

Adam Knight made his Carrera Cup GB debut in the Am class with the Valluga Racing team in 2019, sharing the car with Adam Hatfield. The Canadian-born driver scored a third place in his only his third race in the series.

For the final three race weekends of the 2019 season Knight drove with the JTR team, taking five podiums from six races, including a win in the final race of the season.
