2006 Porsche Carrera Cup GB

The Porsche Carrera Cup GB has been completely revamped for the 2006 season, with the new 997 model being introduced to the UK and the entire stock of available cars being sold out within a short time of them going on sale. It has attracted an entry list which is expected to be around the 20 mark, with the likes of Tim Harvey, Jason Templeman and reigning champion Damien Faulkner returning yet again. They are joined by several familar names from national racing such as Michael Caine, Mark Cole and Mark Sumpter. It also sees British Formula 3 driver Danny Watts and BTCC racer Richard Williams try a new career direction with the German sportscars. Other drivers include Faithless lead singer Maxi Jazz making a long-awaited return to a full season's racing for the first time in a few years.

There will be a new class in the championship too, with the drivers being defined as either Professional or Professional-Amateur (Pro-Am). The Pro-Ams will race for overall points, as well as scoring in their individual category, in an attempt to give the 'gentleman drivers' their own chance of glory.

2005 summary

Team Parker Racing's Damien Faulkner won the championship and a roadgoing Porsche 911 Turbo, after beating the 2004 winner Richard Westbrook in a tense and often controversial season, when the two had a few close encounters. Jason Templeman took third, ahead of 2004 runner-up Tim Harvey.
