Seb Perez looking for positive Porsche Carrera Cup GB finish on return to home of British motorsport

After two visits to Silverstone so far this year, Chesterfield-based racing driver Seb Perez returns one last time this weekend (September 27-29) in his Amigos Redline Racing machine.

With earlier visits with both the Porsche Carrera Cup GB and Porsche Supercup, the 19-year old has turned plenty of laps of the Northamptonshire venue, but will compete on the shorter 1.6-mile layout this time out.

With two podiums and five top-four finishes on his maiden season in the Pro class of the series, the 2018 Pro-Am champion was unlucky last time out as contact caused him to retire while battling for further silverware.

Regardless, Seb remains focused on a strong end to the season with points finishes in all of the final four races remaining, which would also vault him into fifth place in the championship standings.

He will be on track for two free practice sessions on Friday, September 27 at 9am and 13:30 respectively, before qualifying a day later at 13:25. Both of the 28-lap races will take place on Sunday, September 29 at 11:00 and 16:25.

Seb Perez

“We’re ready for our third visit to at Silverstone this year. We showed good pace in the second race at the FIA WEC weekend and are ready to carry that forward to the National circuit. Hopefully it will all go well, and we will have a successful weekend.

“The two corners that we use on both the National and Grand Prix layout are the same, so we have good knowledge already. It’s a good little track with three big stops so it’s good for overtaking, there’s always a chance for a manoeuvre, so the racing should be exciting.

“The exit onto the Wellington Straight is very important, we have to be careful not to slide the rear tyres. It’s good to get up the inside of someone into Becketts as well as aiming for a move into Brooklands.

“We could do with some podiums toward the end of the year and finish the season on a high. I think I’ve come on well this year and I’m fairly happy with my performance. You never stop learning. We’ve had some good rounds and some bad, but hopefully we can end with a good haul of points.”
