Aspin joins Team Parker Racing
Italian racer Will Aspin has joined Team Parker Racing for his maiden season in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, setting his sights on success in the series’ Pro-Am championship.
The Leicestershire-based team has secured a superb 14 championship titles in the Carrera Cup in the past five years, including two Teams’ honours, two Rookie crowns, and the overall prize in 2020, where it claimed 80 total podiums out of 96 on offer across all classes.
Will, born in Florence, started racing karts at the age of 11, before taking part in three Ginetta Junior Championship races as a 14-year-old in 2019. After racing in the Winter Championship that November he undertook a full season in 2020, securing seven top ten finishes, with a best result of sixth. Moving to the Ginetta GT5 Challenge last year, the teenager claimed three wins, ten further podiums, four pole positions, and finished third in the Pro class standings, just two points behind second, after some bad luck during the final weekend of the season at Donington Park.
The 17-year-old has already had a taste of the new 992-style Porsche 911 GT3 Cup machine which will feature in the Carrera Cup GB this year, undertaking tests with the team both in the UK and in Portugal over the winter. With increased aerodynamic performance and an improved 510 hp, lap records are expected to tumble across UK circuits.
