Porsche news: Dreelan and Brewster return to Porsche Carrera Cup GB
Tommy Dreelan and George Brewster will both contest full seasons in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, racing alongside young gun Rory Butcher in the three-car squad from Celtic Speed. With all three drivers from north of the border and the team based in Montrose and headed by Scot Alan Keith, this is a strongly Scottish team.
Both Dreelan and Brewster have competed in the Carrera Cup GB since the middle of 2009 and will chase the Pro-Am2 title this season. In 2010, Brewster was one of the title contenders in the category and missed the title by just two points after a very strong and consistent season.
Aberdeen-based Dreelan, who originally hailed from Ireland, only started racing late in 2005 and has since raced extensively in Porsches. Edinburgh’s Brewster, meanwhile, raced karts as a youngster and then returned to the sport a decade ago, racing first Caterhams and then Porsches.
“We’re looking forward to a full season in the Carrera Cup,” said Dreelan. “With Rory in the team we’ve got someone to chase now and that should be a big help with the data as well.”
The Celtic Speed team is busy testing the latest 450bhp 911GT3 Cup cars 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.
