News from Porsche Carrerra Cup GB

Porsche Carrera Cup GB continues partnership with Sacred 
The Porsche Carrera Cup GB has continued its association with Sacred into a third consecutive season to provide teams, drivers and guests with gourmet coffee throughout the coming race season. Sacred will be the supplier of coffee in the Carrera Cup GB race centre, which is home to over 300 people on busy race weekends.

Tubbs Wanigasekera and Matthew Clark formed Sacred in 2005. Now seven years and over two million great coffees later, Sacred now has six locations in Central London and a reputation for being one of London’s favourite cafĂ© experiences.

Locations that include Covent Garden and Carnaby Street have helped Sacred grow into one of London’s finest gourmet tea and coffee brands. It has been voted as one of the top five cafes, four years running by Time Out London, and singled out as a brand to watch by The Times. More details are at www.sacredcafe.com

“Sacred is incredibly proud to support the Carrera Cup GB for another season,” said Wanigasekera. “The partnership is perfect for our brands and we are excited to be part of the Porsche family for another year. Entering our third year together is testament that the relationship with Porsche and our Sacred Coffee brand is successful and provides fantastic exposure to us and our core product of gourmet coffee."

"Sacred would also like to congratulate James Sutton and Simon Leonard at Redline Racing for winning the 2011Carrera Cup title, and wish them and the other drivers the best for the 2012 season."

Richardson joins Parr Motorsport for Carrera Cup GB
George Richardson will join Parr Motorsport for an assault on the Pro-Am1 category of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB this season.

Richardson, who will only celebrate his 21st birthday during the week following the final races of 2012, will go into his third season in the Carrera Cup GB aiming to be one of the pacesetters in the category.

Manchester-based Richardson had his first full season in the Carrera Cup in 2010 and finished third in the Pro-Am2 category with four wins. In 2011 he was fifth in Pro-Am1 with six podiums, five of them in the final eight races of the season. For the coming year, Richardson will join Ben Barker (20) and Chris Dymond (24) to give the Sussex-based team an incredibly strong and youthful driver line-up.

“I’m excited about the prospect of working with Parr Motorsport," said Richardson. "I’ve had a good relationship with Paul Robe since I entered the championship and with Parr’s standard of preparation and its history in the Carrera Cup the team has always been at the top. I hope to learn as much as I can to help achieve my goal of becoming a professional sports car driver.”

Team boss Paul Robe was delighted to complete his driver line up, which has an average age of less than 21 and a half. “I really am very pleased to have George joining our team for 2012,” said Robe. “We’ve got a very young team of drivers and it is great to work with young guys who have a lot of drive and determination. The target for George is to win races in Pro-Am1.”
