David Wall’s championship winning Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race car is set to be a front-runner in the 2018 Porsche Michelin GT3 Cup Challenge Australia series in the hands of an up-and-coming racer.
Young driver Chelsea Angelo will join GT3 Cup Challenge with Carrera Cup title winning team, Wall Racing, following a stint in Formula 3 and Super2.
With the 911 GT3 Cup (Type 991.I) now eligible for GT3 Cup Challenge competition, Angelo will make the most of the newly available model.
Angelo tested the 2014-spec 911 GT3 Cup car at Wakefield Park late last year and, following the successful outing, is looking forward to the new challenge.
“It’s great to join Wall Racing this year in the Porsche Michelin GT3 Cup Challenge Australia series. I am really looking forward to racing in the series in a Carrera Cup championship winning car. I would like to thank PAYCE, Wilson Security, Grove Hire and OX Wheels for all of their assistance and support. I can’t wait for the season to start and to get back on track,” said Angelo.
Wall Racing Team Manager, David Fyfe, is pleased to sign Angelo and his high expectations for the Melbourne-based racer in the Porsche series.
“It is great to be able to get a deal together for Chelsea to join Wall Racing and run her in GT3 Cup Challenge championship,” said Fyfe.
“Chelsea has been given a fantastic opportunity to race a full season and to show everyone what she can do. Heading into the 2018 season we are confident of a very strong showing from Chelsea and for her to be a consistent front runner and in contention for the title at the end of the year.”
Porsche Michelin GT3 Cup Challenge Australia will commence at the opening Shannons Nationals event of the season at the brand new The Bend Motorsport Park on 13-15 April.
