2020 Season Review: Porsche Carrera Cup GB

Domination is just one word that can be attributed to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB in 2020 as Harry King swept aside the competition to be crowned champion at the very first time of asking.

The 19-year-old produced a stunning season-long performance to reign supreme in the fastest and most successful single marque GT championship in the UK, wrapping up the crown with one event to spare and racking up countless victories.

Having stormed to the Ginetta GT4 Supercup title in 2019, King secured the coveted role as Porsche GB’s Junior driver for the 2020-21 seasons after coming out on top of a four-driver shootout at Silverstone.

His prize, one of the biggest in UK motorsport, consisted of £85,000 towards his budget for each of the next two seasons as well as a specialist training programme at the Porsche Human Performance Centre and technical support from Porsche Motorsport.

Putting pen-to-paper on a deal to join leading outfit Team Parker Racing, King wasted no time in establishing himself as the driver to beat as he kicked off his campaign with a win and second place at Donington Park.

From there, King was unstoppable as he bagged wins at Brands Hatch GP, Oulton Park, Knockhill, Silverstone, Snetterton and Brands Hatch Indy; continuing to extend his advantage at the summit of the standings on the TOCA support package.

Were it not for a few bouts of bad luck along the way, King could well have added to his impressive tally of wins, of which there were 12 in total.

Josh Webster, Will Martin, Ross Wylie and Matthew Graham were the other victors over the course of the season. None of them however would be able to match King as he marched towards the title in his rookie campaign.

Elsewhere, Team Parker Racing made it a clean sweep of Carrera Cup GB titles as Esmee Hawkey claimed the Pro-Am title and Justin Sherwood wrapped up the Am crown.
