Josh Caygill has signed with Team Redline Racing for the 2021 Porsche Carrera Cup GB season after being forced to sit out the 2020 season which would have seen him make his series debut with the team.
The 30-year-old has a lot of experience over his racing career, starting with motorcycles before switching to cars in 2013. After racing in touring cars he switched his attention to sports cars, contesting two seasons in Blancpain (Now GT World Challenge). Caygill has also feature on the British Touring Car Championship grid and the VLN Series at the Nürburgring.
Simon Leonard, Managing Director of Redline Racing commented, “After a promising pre-season, it was a real shame that Josh wasn’t able to come racing with us last season. That means we’re even more delighted that we could sign a deal with him to come back to Team Redline Racing this year.
“Josh has proven himself to be a quick and versatile driver during his career so far, and he impressed us with how quickly he got to grips with the Porsche during his initial tests with us. He’s ready to make up for lost time now and we’re confident he can have a great year.”
Josh Caygill is ready to get the next chapter of his racing career under way after being forced to sit out a year due to the ongoing pandemic, “After having to unfortunately cancel my plans to contest the Porsche Carrera Cup GB last year, I’m delighted to have been able to put the deal together to finally enter the series this season with Team Redline Racing.
“The team gave me a great learning environment last year to initially get to grips with the Porsche, and I’m confident that with their support I can keep progressing and getting quicker. It’s an awesome car to drive, unlike anything I’ve raced before.
“I haven’t raced full-time in the UK for a few years now, so it’s good to be back and in such a prestigious and competitive championship. I’m looking forward to getting stuck into the action this year and can’t wait to get the season underway.”
