Perez ready to “enjoy” final races of Porsche Carrera Cup GB season

20-year old racing driver Seb Perez is set to compete in the final two races of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, as the series travels to the challenging Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit in Kent.

Just 12 months ago Seb entered the weekend knowing the Pro-Am championship title hung in the balance, and pole position and third place in race one sealed the honours for him.

This time out, racing in the top Pro class of the series, the Chesterfield-native can relax knowing that he can enjoy the weekend and try to close out what has been an up and down campaign.

After starting the year strong and taking five top-five finishes in the opening ten races, things have not been as successful of late, sadly. Two separate visits to Silverstone, combined with a change in camber angle to aid tyre wear, has left the Amigos Redline Racing driver with a string of frustrating results.

Seb will take to the undulating 2.4-mile circuit for two practice sessions on Friday, October 11 at 11:30 and 16:05, ahead of qualifying a day later at 13:20. There will be two 17-lap races on Sunday, October 13 at 10:40 and 16:05.

“Brands Hatch GP is probably everyone’s favourite track. We are privileged to race on it as it doesn’t get used much anymore. We’re also back to full camber as well – the restriction was brought in to help tyre wear at Silverstone – so the car is back to usual running spec, so it should be a good weekend.

“The camber change helped some drivers more than others and had advantages and disadvantages, but I don’t think my performance at Silverstone is just to do with those changes.

“Last year there was a lot more riding on where I would finish in the race rather than this year because I’m not fighting for a championship which is a shame, but it will be nice as well as I can go and enjoy the last two races without worrying about points and positions.”
