Malvern hopes for more Porsche outings

Managing Editor

British GT racer Scott Malvern is hoping that a strong performance in the next rounds of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB can lead to extra outings with the German manufacturer.

Multiple British single-seater champion Malvern will deputise for Porsche Carrera Cup GB championship leader Dan Cammish at Snetterton on July 29/30 as Cammish is away contesting the clashing Supercup race in Hungary.

Malvern has been racing a Team Parker Racing-run Porsche Cayman GT4 in British GT this season, in what is his second year of GT racing. The Barkingside racer is an old rival to Cammish, the two having competed against each other in British Formula Ford previously.

Malvern, who has won the British Formula Ford, FF1600 and Formula Renault BARC titles, hopes the Carrera Cup outing could lead to more races in the series in the future.

“I’m really excited as I’ve been trying to get into the Carrera Cup for a few years now,” said Malvern.

“It’s a really tight single-make series that races on a great stage, so I want to go in and do well and fight at the front, where the car deserves to be. Dan has shown that Formula Ford graduate naturally tend to do well in this type of racing and I really want to go in and get into the mix.

“I’ve never driven a 911 GT3 Cup before, but a lot of people tell me they’re similar to a Formula Ford in principal. They’ve got little downforce, move around a lot and all of your performance is in mechanical grip. You can’t just barrel into corners, you have to be a bit more patient.

“Hopefully if I can do a good job this may lead to more chances in both the Carrera Cup and with Porsche.”
