King and Webster to compete in Porsche Supercup with Team Parker

Porsche Carrera Cup GB champions Harry King and Josh Webster will race for Team Parker as the squad moves into the Porsche Supercup this season in partnership with Revs Motorsport.


King had long-eyed progressing into the Formula 1-supporting Supercup for 2021, after storming to the Carrera Cup crown in dramatic style last season in the first of his two years as a Porsche GB Junior.

His spectacular performances caught the attention of fans and he secured Autosport's National Driver of the Year Award, beating British Touring Car champion Ash Sutton to the honour.

King's dual campaign has now been confirmed and he will benefit from working with the same engineers across both categories, which involves driving two different cars as the Supercup has switched to the latest Type 992 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car for this season.

"I’m delighted to be competing in the Porsche Supercup," said King.

"It’s something I’ve been wanting to achieve since becoming a Porsche Junior driver and is the logical step towards progressing in my career and I feel ready for it.

"Hopping from two models of Porsche Cup cars will pose challenges, but it’s something I know I can manage."

At present, there are two early-season clashes between the Supercup and Carrera Cup, where King is set to race in the latter, and he therefore believes it is difficult to predict what he can achieve in the Supercup.

"My goal is obviously to be at the front," he said.

"Whether it takes a few rounds or a full season, I know we’ll definitely find our feet.

"I understand the high level of competition in the championship, so it won’t be easy."

Carrera Cup runner-up Webster, meanwhile, will return to the Supercup for the first time since 2018.

The 2014 Carrera Cup GB champion finished seventh in the standings in his rookie Supercup season in 2017, and took a best result of fourth across his initial two-year spell in the series.

“It will be my third full Supercup season so I will be aiming to use all of my experience, especially on tracks where we don’t have much testing, to gain the upper hand,” said Webster.

"I also cannot wait to get to grips with the new 911 GT3 Cup car, as it looks absolutely fantastic and I am sure it will be really enjoyable to drive as well."
