Motorbase Performance returns to Porsche Carrera Cup

9 March 2018

Motorbase Performance has confirmed it will return to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship, for the 2018 season.

The multiple Championship-winning outfit last competed in the Carrera Cup in 2011. After initially joining the grid in 2004, David Bartrum’s team competed at the top of the championship for seven seasons, securing the Teams’ Championship title with a four-car strong squad in 2010 and amassing  26 race wins.

The Kent-based outfit also has a long and successful history with Porsche. Following its triumph in the Carrera Cup, the team then moved to the British GT Championship in 2012, claiming the Teams’ Title on its debut season before clinching the Drivers’ crown in 2014 with the 911 GT3R – affectionately known as ‘Fat Max’.

“Motorbase has a long and successful heritage with Porsche,” said team principal David Bartrum. “We started our business around the brand in the Carrera cup back in 2004 with Andy and Gary Britnell. The Porsche Carrera Cup has played a massive role in our history, and helped set us on the road to where we are now.

“I’m very proud to be returning to the Carrera Cup this year. Motorbase’s first ever race win was in the Carrera Cup back in 2004 at Donington Park and we have a lot of happy memories from our time in the Championship. We left in 2011 but stayed with the brand and celebrated more success again in British GT, so we have a very special relationship with Porsche.”
