How a Porsche King became 2020's breakout star

Few drivers in 2020 could lay claim to a season as exceptional as Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion Harry King. Beating the British Touring Car Championship's best to win Autosport's National Driver of the Year was the ideal recognition of his feat

It takes a pretty special performance for someone other than a British Touring Car Championship racer to be voted as Autosport's National Driver of the Year. In the past decade, only two non-BTCC drivers have scooped the award - and, of them, one was Lando Norris after his Euro F3 title-winning season. Never has a driver competing in one of the BTCC's support series landed the prize. Therefore, for Porsche Carrera Cup GB star Harry King to win shows how special his season was.

There have been some dominant performances in the Carrera Cup GB in recent years - Dan Cammish (twice) and Dan Harper completely trounced the opposition during their title-winning campaigns. But King took that domination to a whole new level.
