Jamie Orton will join previously-announced Seb Hopkins in the Team Parker Racing Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS for the 2022 Intelligent Money British GT Championship.
Orton has been contesting the Porsche Carrera Cup GB since 2017 and finished 8th in the Pro standings in 2021. The 42-year-old began his racing career in the Ginetta GT Supercup in 2011.
“I’m really looking forward to being in the British GT Championship and driving the new GT4 Cayman with Team Parker Racing,” said Jamie Orton. “Seb in a nice guy and just getting started in his motorsport career. We’ve tested in Portugal recently which was a good chance to get to know him and everyone at Team Parker Racing.
“I’ve spent many years racing against them and they’ve had a lot of success in recent years so it will be a good chance to race for them.
“After four seasons in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, it was time for a new challenge and racing in the British GT Championship is just that. I’ve been a Porsche fan for a long time so it’s great to be able to stay with the brand, albeit in a new car.”
The 2022 Intelligent Money British GT Championship gets underway at Oulton Park on April 16 – 18.
