Nonetheless, it was a successful return to racing for Archie, having been out for 5 years, focussing his time and energy on building successful YouTube and Social Media platforms.

The Porsche Carrera Cup acts as a support bill to the highly popular British Touring Car Championship (BTCC). With races shown live on ITV4 on Sunday’s and average crowd attendances of 30,000 people, this will be an exciting season for Archie and his team.

Archie Hamilton:

“I’m really happy to be making the step up to the Porsche Carrera Cup. I want to thank Brookspeed Racing for bringing me into their team and for seeing the vision for the future. We’ve got a lot of work to do and we’ll be working hard from now until the start of the season to bring sponsors and partners on board.”

“We’ve got some exciting content plans for the YouTube channel and the Porsche Cup season will allow me to do bigger and better things, compared to last year. The car is epic to drive! It’s going to be another steep learning curve as we won’t have a huge amount of time to practice or test before the first race in June. But we’ll be giving it our all and I’m excited to get going!”

With the first race in just under 5 weeks, the hard work begins for Archie and his team to get all of the small details in place. A race against time for sure, but one they’ll embrace.
