Hello Stuart – you’re new to the series.
Why don’t you introduce yourself to the fans?
I’m Stuart Parker, from Parker Revs Motorsport, and I can’t wait to get going in the pinnacle of Porsche’s one-make cups, the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. We’re really looking forward to racing against the best international Porsche teams this season!
What can we expect from one of Britain's best PCCGB teams in the Supercup?
Obviously, we’re here to be as successful as we are back home in Britain. We have to respect the past, but we believe that with the team, the drivers and the sponsors we have, we can challenge right from the start.
What difficulties is a British team facing this season?
In terms of Brexit, the travel restrictions are not that big of a problem, but the constantly changing Covid restrictions are really giving us a headache this season.
Which round are you looking forward to the most? Silverstone? Why?
Silverstone always has a special place in our hearts because it’s our home race. But my personal favorite track is Monza. I just love the rich history of the place and every time I drive through the royal park it gives me goosebumps.
What are your expectations for the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car – especially from an engineer's point of view?
The new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is such a huge step forward, again. We’re lucky enough to also have a GT3 R in our portfolio, which I think is very close. The car is just a beautiful machine and I’m sure that it’ll be quite a difference when it comes to pace, compared to the previous model.
What do you think of Porsche’s plans to promote sustainability in their one-make cups?
I think that this is the only way to go. We have to be more responsible in general, and with Porsche taking the lead by implementing new, CO2 neutral fuels, it’s just the perfect way to start.
Stuart, thank you so much for the chat.
