News 2011: Perfetti Joins Motorbase for Carrera Cup GB

March 17th

London-based Swiss racer Daniele Perfetti will contest the Porsche Carrera Cup GB this season with Motorbase Performance.

Perfetti brings experience from racing Renault Clios and the Porsche Carrera Cup in Italy, but this will be his first season of racing in the UK and he will be new to most of the tracks on the schedule. "I went to a lot of UK track days about 10 years ago, so I know some of the tracks. But I have to learn everything from scratch."

Perfetti started his pre-season testing at Donington Park today (Thursday 17 March) and says that he is already fitting in well with the Motorbase team, where he will be able to learn from team mates Michael Caine and Tim Harvey. "I feel at home with the team from the start," he said.

"I moved to London recently so it's nice to race here. Motorbase is a local team and it has many good customers, so it must do a good job. Today was my first day at Donington Park," added Perfetti, who will contest the pro-am2 category.

Team boss David Bartrum is delighted to have confirmed the fifth driver for his team, but still has capacity to run one further car this season.

Perfetti will now continue testing his 450bhp 911GT3 Cup and will take part in the pre-season test and media day at Snetterton on 22 March. The opening two races of the season will be at Brands Hatch over the weekend of 2/3 April.
