IN2RACING RETURN TO GT CUP WITH WILDCARD TIM HARVEY
29th April 2015
The In2Racing team have confirmed they will be returning to GT Cup this year, with special guest driver, Tim Harvey.
Last year, In2Racing were responsible for leading David Walley to the GTB group title, with his team mates Will Plant and Oliver Bryant a close second. For 2015 they will be entering on a round by round basis with two Porsche 911 (991) Cup cars.
Their drivers for 2015 are Nick Stavely and Jarrod Potter. Nick has been racing a Porsche for many years in both Britain and Europe, with his last competitive race in 2007. He will be joined by BTCC commentator Tim Harvey for the first round at Donington Park this weekend. Tim is a former BTCC, GT and Porsche champion and now shares his knowledge as part of the BTCC commentary team.
Nick said: “I have tried to retire from racing three times now over the last 15 years but I can’t seem to give it up and I keep coming back. I’ve had podium finishes in a Porsche before so hopefully I can continue that this year. I started racing in 1998 and finished second in the championship that year so I’m feeling positive.”
Tim added: “I’m really excited for this weekend. The championship has grown in stature over the past few years. There’s an interesting mix of cars that I like and there’s lots of good racing so I’m pleased Nick asked me to join him. I’ve known Nick for many years so we should be a good partnership. It’s just a one off race at the moment but who knows, I like any opportunity to get behind the wheel of a car so I could be back later in the year.”
Joining Nick and Tim in the second In2Racing Porsche 991 Cup car is Jarrod Potter. This weekend will be Jarrod’s first race and he has been working to get himself up to speed with the Porsche 991. He said: “This weekend being my first race is long overdue. I’ll be doing a few ad-hoc races this year with a view to competing in a full season in 2016. All my track time so far has been in 911s and I’m particularly fond of the new 991 Cup car. I’ve been working with Calum Lockie who introduced me to the team, so we are just going to get stuck in and see what’s what. I’m really looking forward to my races this year.”
The GT Cup begins this weekend (25-26 April) at Donington Park for rounds one, two and three of the 22-round season.
