BARNES CHOSEN FOR PORSCHE CARRERA CUP GB GUEST DRIVE

27th April 2005

The fastest race circuit on the Toca Power Tour calendar is the setting for rounds three and four of the 2005 Porsche Carrera Cup GB as the championship heads south to the Thruxton circuit near Andover in Hampshire over the weekend of 30 April/1 May.

For Southampton racer Jon Barnes, the weekend represents the chance of a lifetime as he has been selected to race the car entered by Porsche Cars GB in association with Team Autosport.

The 21-year old, who is the reigning Autosport Caterham Eurocup champion has been given a fabulous chance to show his potential at Thruxton and plans to make the very most of the opportunity. "I'm very thankful for the opportunity to drive the Porsche at Thruxton. Due to funding difficulties, this could be the only time I get to race this year and it is a great chance to showcase my ability," says Barnes.
