Parker Revs Motorsport, a successful partnership between Team Parker Racing and Revs Motorsport, is delighted to announce that it will be returning to the Porsche Carrera Cup Benelux for the 2022 season with Harry King.
Harry won an exceptional 12 of 16 races entered with Team Parker Racing in the Carrera Cup GB in 2020, claiming the championship title at the first time of asking. Last season he remained in the series, adding three more victories, while juggling racing in the Porsche Supercup, having to switch between the latest 992-style Porsche 911 GT3 Cup and the previous 991.2 model.
In addition, the BRDC SuperStar also joined the team in a one-off appearance in the Benelux series at the Red Bull Ring, winning both races despite being his first time at the Austrian venue. Those performances have given him hope for a successful campaign this year, which he will undertake alongside his existing Supercup plans, where he enjoyed an opening weekend podium finish in Italy.
The Benelux series will enjoy races alongside the FIA World Endurance Championship, European Le Mans Series, ADAC GT Masters, and DTM, amongst others. Race weekends feature two 40 minutes free practice sessions, a 35-minute qualifying session, and two races of 30 minutes, plus one lap, at each venue, guaranteeing significant on-track time.

“I’m excited to be returning to the Porsche Carrera Cup Benelux after I took part in a guest round last season and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and my goal is the championship. I have good memories of working with Patrick de Groot at Parker Revs Motorsport in the series last year, securing two wins in two races, as well as our successful years in the Carrera Cup GB.
“I will be doing this alongside my Supercup commitments, like in 2021, to enjoy consistent track time and keep myself race fresh throughout the season. My aim for the programme is to extend my knowledge of the circuits, some of which I haven’t raced on before. I’m looking forwards to gaining experience on the new Spa layout as well as circuits like Zolder and Hockenheim which I am yet to visit. In addition, more consistency in the car will mean I am more comfortable and that will only help for my Porsche Supercup campaign. In addition to this the championship is an obvious goal.
“I’m delighted to be continuing our successful partnership with Octane Finance and, in addition, I have Virtual Effect and Hive Frames sticking with me for 2022, so I want to thank them for their support.”
