Century Motorsport adds the Cayman in the Porsche Sprint Challenge GB to their extensive 2023 line up, with GT5 Vice Champion Will Jenkins behind the wheel.
Rising star Jenkins is making the exciting move up to the Porsche Cayman this year, after taking second place last season in his debut entry with the Ginetta GT5 challenge. The Staffordshire racer previously competed for two years in the Ginetta Juniors and stepped on the podium 8 times throughout his second season.
“I’m really excited to be moving into the Porsche Sprint Challenge GB for the 2023 season. This is a fantastic opportunity for me to race in a top GT championship and compete full-time on the prestigious BTCC support package again” Jenkins said.
“I’m thrilled to be joining one of the leading teams in British motorsport. Century’s track record in GT racing speaks for itself, so I am confident that with their support, we can have a very successful season. I look forward to the challenge ahead and can’t wait to get started.”
The Cayman is a thrilling new challenge for Century Motorsport too. After introducing Porsche to their lineup last year, they are now ready to build on their growing success with the Porsches’, after achieving the Rookie title with Rosland Gold Racing and Gus Burton in the PCCGB.
“It’s great to be able to conclude this deal with Will to make our debut on the Porsche Cayman Sprint Challenge grid. Will is clearly a very talented young driver and someone we know can fight for podiums and wins straight away” says Team Principal Nathan Freke.
“The Porsche Cayman is new to us, but we already have experience with the Porsche brand in the Carrera Cup car and believe that our approach will be the correct one to maximise performance from the car and Will.”
“The move for the Cayman Sprint Challenge to the TOCA championship is hugely positive and we thought it extremely important to be on the grid for the first year of the new era. We will start as a 1 car team where we will focus everything we have on making sure we leave no stone unturned and our aim is to be in the championship fight come the end of the year.”
“The Porsche brand is one we are very proud to be involved with – we can now offer a ladder system from Cayman to Carrera Cup and I hope that Will be the first one to benefit from this from this year into next.”
The Porsche Sprint Challenge will be contested over 18 races at 6 events, alongside the BTCC calendar. The first race weekend takes place at Donington Park on the 22-23 April.
