Wylie aiming for pro-am title

THORNHILL racing driver Ross Wylie is aiming to go one better and claim this year’s prestigious Porsche Carrera Cup GB Pro-Am Driver’s title.

Wylie, 32, drives a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car entered and prepared by the West Yorkshire-based Toro Verde GT team.

Last year the Dumfries driver missed out on the “crown” by just seven-points in the hotly-contested series.

The televised eight-event, 16-race championship gets underway at Donington Park later this month on April 27 and 28, with Wylie again receiving support from The Glenturret distillery and Tunnock’s. Additionally, long-standing Thornhill sponsors, AL-2 Teknik UK, PyroDry, and Carronbridge Sawmill are all backing Ross’ exploits once again.

Ross, who had a partial season with Toro Verde GT in 2022, finished in the Pro-Am top-five on 13 occasions last year, including nine podiums and six wins.

He said: “I’m very excited to be returning to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB grid with the intention of going one place better than last year and win the Pro-Am division.

“I tested at Donington Park and then in an official test at Brands Hatch this week which gave me the opportunity to dust off the cobwebs behind the wheel.

“I had a few races with Toro Verde GT in the Porsche series two years ago, posting a couple of top-seven overall placings, so I’m delighted to be back racing with them this year.

“The entry in this year’s championship looks even stronger if that’s possible so it’s going to be a tough fight all season. But I’m up for the challenge and gunning for success.”
