Harry King confirms Porsche Supercup programme

08.04.2021: Porsche GB Junior Driver Harry King will take on an additional challenge during the 2021 season after today confirming that he will make his international racing debut in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. The highly-rated 20-year-old from Holyport


Porsche GB Junior Driver Harry King will take on an additional challenge during the 2021 season after today confirming that he will make his international racing debut in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.



The highly-rated 20-year-old from Holyport in Berkshire will compete in the series alongside his previously announced return to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, where he will be seeking to defend the title he won in dominant fashion last year.



Harry’s debut in the Supercup will see him compete with Parker Revs Motorsport; a new outfit born out of a collaboration between Team Parker Racing - the team behind his successful Carrera Cup GB  programme - and the Revs Motorsport operation of Patrick de Groot.



De Groot was part of Team Parker’s engineering line-up last year, and has been involved in two Supercup championship winning campaigns in the past.



Whereas Harry - a newly appointed member of the BRDC Superstars programme - will defend his Carrera Cup GB title in the same car he drove to twelve wins from 16 starts last year, his Supercup campaign will see him at the wheel of the all-new 992-shape 911 GT3 Cup, which makes its debut in the series this year.



The Porsche Supercup season is currently scheduled to kick off on the streets of Monaco in mid-May, and will also see Harry compete at the likes of Silverstone, Spa-Francorchamps and Monza in support of the Formula 1 World Championship.



"I’m delighted to be competing in Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup," Harry said. "It’s something I’ve wanted to achieve since becoming a Porsche Junior Driver and is the logical step towards progressing in my career up the Porsche ladder of success and I feel ready for it.



"It will be an honour and privilege to represent Porsche GB as the first Junior Driver to compete on an international stage for a full season, and I’m looking forward to continuing to benefit from the intuitive support I already receive in Great Britain as part of this new programme.



"The new Supercup car is a lot more technically advanced and is quicker on an overall lap time than the car I have been racing so far, and hopping from two models of Porsche Cup cars will of course pose its challenges - but it’s something I know I can manage.



"Having the same team, same engineers and same working environment will make the transition from each weekend easier for me as a driver, which is just how we planned it out to be.



"My goal for the Supercup is obviously to be at the front, and whether it takes a few rounds or a full season, I know we’ll definitely find our feet - even though the level of competition is going to be very high. I always say how I despise the term ‘learning year’, but this will definitely be a learning year for me, with the new circuits abroad and the different environment of a Formula 1 weekend."
