KIERN JEWISS CONFIRMS PORSCHE CARRERA CUP GB CAMPAIGN WITH CHAMPIONS TEAM PARKER RACING
18-year-old racer Kiern Jewiss is delighted to announce the latest step in his career as he makes his GT racing debut in the 2021 Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain Championship with Team Parker Racing.
Making the move from single-seaters for the first time since 2017, Kiern joins the reigning Porsche Carrera Cup GB Pro, Pro-Am and Am class winning outfit to form an outstanding Pro line-up alongside 2020 champion Harry King.
No stranger to success, Kiern dominated the 2018 British F4 Championship in his debut season with a record-breaking number of points, podiums and winning margin, before graduating to BRDC British F3 in 2019. In the two seasons that followed, Kiern scored two victories and a further eight podiums despite a truncated 2020 season.
Jewiss joins Porsche UK’s premier one-make championship, which forms a steppingstone for the wider ‘Porsche Motorsports Pyramid’ headlined by the manufacturer’s Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, World Championship GT and Formula E programmes.
Having completed a seat fit earlier this month, Kiern will take to the track with Team Parker Racing on 31st March for the first official series test of 2021.
Looking ahead to an exciting 2021 with Team Parker Racing, Kiern said:
“It’s great to finally confirm my place in Porsche Carrera Cup GB. The championship is very competitive, and with the calibre of drivers on the grid it really feels like a natural step up from the BRDC British F3 Championship. I think Porsche has created a very attractive package with its prizes and potential progression, too.
“It was a simple decision to join Team Parker Racing with the success they had last year and my target is pretty straightforward; to win the title! Having Harry [King] alongside me in the team will be a challenge but also a great reference. I can’t wait to get started.”
Stuart Parker, Team Principal at Team Parker Racing added:
“We are delighted to welcome Kiern to the team. Everything has happened quite quickly, but he has consistently proved to be quick in the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car despite it being a big change from the single seaters he has been racing.
“It was no fluke that he was a McLaren Autosport BRDC Award finalist and drove so well in both Ginetta and F4, so we’re really happy to have him as part of the team as we aim to repeat as much success in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB as possible.”
