Charlie March will bring the spirit of Goodwood to the Porsche Sprint Challenge GB grid this year as he joins Team Parker Racing with a Spitfire-inspired livery.
The 26-year-old made his first appearance in modern GT’s last year at Silverstone in the final round of the Sprint Challenge GB, before that he race historic machinery at the Goodwood Revival.
“I had such a great time in my one race last year, and Stuart and the team looked after me so well, I thought I’d come back and give it a proper go.” said March.
“I’m pretty inexperienced at the modern circuits, so I’m just excited to try them out and learn as we go. Going back to Silverstone will be good as I’ve driven there before but it will all be good learning for the future.
“Josh [Webster] came down last time to show me through the car and the track, and I’m sure it will be the same this year in terms of support, TPR are very generous with their time. It’s a fantastic team and there’s no place I’d rather be.”
The striking livery of March’s Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport takes inspiration from when the home of the Goodwood Circuit was known as RAF Westhampnett, supporting the nearby RAF Tangmere during World War II. During this time the first squadron of Supermarine Spitfires were based there during the Battle of Britain.
March will join the previously announced Matt Armstrong plus a further yet-to-be-announced two drivers at Team Parker as they take on the second season of the Porsche Sprint Challenge GB which starts at Thruxton on the weekend of 8-9 May
