After making their Porsche Carrera Cup GB debut together in 2020, Richardson Racing and Will Martin have announced that they will be renewing their partnership for 2021.

With entries in Ginetta Junior Championship, Ginetta GT5 Challenge and British F4 already, the Corby-based team expanded in to Carrera Cup GB which would see Martin take his maiden victory at Thruxton.

Along with the win, Martin chalked up five more podium finishes to take fifth place overall in the championship along with four rookie class wins for second place in the end of year points.

In what looks to be a competitive year in the championship, Martin is hoping to build on the experience he gained in 2020 as he pushes to add to his win tally in a bid to challenge for the title.

“I’m really looking forward to the 2021 season, and I’m delighted to be staying with the Richardson Racing team, and returning to the Carrera Cup GB.” said Martin.

“In our first year in the series, we made huge progress across the season as we learned more and more about the car, and we ended the year in a very strong position with six podium finishes from the final eight races.

“The aim now is to carry that form through into the new season, and our goal has to be to fight for the title.

“It certainly won’t be easy as there are some high calibre drivers joining the grid and I feel the level of competition is going to be greater than last year, but I’m ready for the challenge and can’t wait for the start of the season to come around.”

Gwyn Richardson, Richardson Racing team principal added, “We’re delighted to be able to keep Will onboard for another season, as he has become an important part of the team during the past few years.

“Last season was a big step for him to go from the Ginetta to the Porsche, and the way he adapted to the change and the results he secured showed what a talented driver he is.

“His results last season, particularly towards the end of the year, were outstanding and I’m confident that with the extra experience he now has behind him, he can build on his rookie year and be a contender for top honours in 2021.”
