Pete Smallwood celebrates a successful 20122012 GT Cup Class Two champion and Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge contender Pete Smallwood will step up to the prestigious Porsche Carrera Cup GB for 2013. Pete will contest in the Pro-Am2 class with race winning team Parr Motorsport.

"I'm really excited to be stepping up again, this time to the Carrera Cup GB,” said Pete. “It's going to be a steep learning curve but we have a solid base to build on from the 2012 season. I'm delighted to have signed to race with Parr Motorsport again. They have done a great job with me so far and I can't wait to start testing in the current generation 997 cup car. Parr have ordered me a brand new car, so I better make good use of it"

“It has been a pleasure to work with Pete in 2012,” commented team boss Paul Robe. “I’m happy he has made the decision to run in the Carrera Cup in 2013 and we are really looking forward to the season.”

“Pete will be the second driver that that we have taken from being a race novice and brought in to the Carrera Cup and it’s something we are very proud of. It’s not something that happens over night, it’s taken Pete nearly four years to get to this point but it is what the Porsche motorsport pyramid is all about. I believe Parr have the best environment to bring a driver on and raise their abilities to perform at Carrera Cup level.”
