Andy enters Porsche Carrera Cup GB with Team Parker Racing

WRDA member Andy Meyrick, reigning Historic Group C Champion and Le Mans competitor, is to make his debut next weekend (11-12th August) in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB. Andy having seen out his contract with Aston Martin, will be entered in the Pro category for the remaining five rounds of the 2012 series with Team Parker Racing thanks to the invaluable support of Lindberg Optic Design, the Danish luxury eyewear designers and manufacturers. After testing the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car he will be racing at Snetterton, Norfolk, Knockhill in Scotland, Northamptonshire’s Rockingham and Silverstone, and Brands Hatch in Kent. Apart from Knockhill Meyrick is familiar with the British circuits thanks to his years in single-seater racing and he is thrilled to be racing again in the UK. " I’m genuinely really excited about this opportunity,” enthused Andy. “The Porsche Carrera Cup GB is a really class championship and it always produces some tight and entertaining racing. It will be tough coming in half way through the year and racing against some Porsche specialists, but I’ll give it everything I’ve got. I’m looking forward to doing some sprint racing again after the last few years in endurance racing, and it’s been a while since I raced at these UK circuits. It’s a real pleasure to be associated with Lindberg, representing them in the UK. I think there’s a lot of synergy between their company, which produces high-end, luxury fashion eyewear, and Porsche which holds such a special and iconic place in the luxury car market. I hope that, through the platform of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, I can help bring more exposure to the Lindberg brand in the UK.”

Andy has raced in North America and Europe in recent years, and his most recent outing was in the rain soaked 24 Hours Spa/Blancpain Endurance Series in a McLaren MP4-12C GT3 for Gulf Racing UK.
