We are Celtic Speed.
Celtic Speed returns to Porsche Carrera Cup GB
Celtic Speed will return to the ultra-competitive Porsche Carrera Cup for the 2013 season. And the two-car team, based at St Cyrus, near Aberdeen, is determined to build on the success of last year.
Rory, the 25-year-old from Kirkcaldy and a double race winner last season, will again drive his 2012 Porsche Carrera 911 GT3 Cup car. And the talented young Scot is gearing up to make a serious challenge for the overall title.
"There's no denying both the team and I made significant progress last year in terms of performances and results," the Fifer explained. "This year we aim to build further on that success. We were competitive at all the race meetings, were regularly on the podium, and clinched our first Porsche wins.
We've identified what we all need to do at Celtic Speed to win races: now our aim is to get on the top step of the podium consistently and mount a strong challenge for the overall championship. I know what to expect: I know the car, I know the circuits, and I know the Celtic Speed team is the best on the grid. I'm really looking forward to a competitive and successful season."
Alongside Rory, Edinburgh's George Brewster is hoping to challenge strongly for the Pro-Am1 Championship.
"For various reasons, primarily work-related, last year was a mixed season," the J&E Shepherd boss said. "The level of competition continues to increase in the Porsche Carrera Cup, and I don't expect things will be any easier this year. But we're ready for a strong challenge."
And team principal Tommy believes he has the two best drivers piloting his Celtic Speed cars in both the Pro and Pro-Am1 categories.
"What Rory and George achieved, alongside all the hard work by the rest of the Celtic Speed squad, last year was fantastic," he admitted. "We're fired up for the new season, and I'm in no doubt we can build further on that success. The Carrera Cup remains good value for money and is extremely professional, yet it's still a very friendly paddock. We can't wait for the season to get underway."
Once again, the Celtic Speed race team is also involved in the Scottish Motor Racing Club Celtic Speed-backed Scottish Mini Cooper Cup.
