Daniel Lloyd will return to the circuit where his Porsche racing career began this weekend when the Carrera Cup GB heads for Brands Hatch for the second meeting of the campaign.

The famous Kent circuit played host to Daniel’s Carrera Cup GB debut back in 2012 when he joined the grid as winner of the Porsche GB Scholarship programme, with the Huddersfield racer going on to secure a podium finish from his first weekend in the series.

Having gone on to compete across the globe in the years since in a successful touring car career – winning races in the likes of TCR Europe and TCR China as well as closer to home in the British Touring Car Championship – Daniel makes his return to Carrera Cup GB this season having inked a deal with Toro Verde GT for 2024.

Daniel’s first outing in the Type 992 version of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car came two weeks ago at Donington Park in challenging conditions that ultimately resulted in only one of the two scheduled races being run.

That race saw Daniel battle back from a tricky qualifying session to race his way through the pack to finish just shy of the top ten, gaining valuable additional knowledge of the car to carry forwards into the remainder of the campaign.

As the shortest circuit on the calendar, the Indy layout being used this weekend will provide an additional challenge for a packed field of more than 20 cars but with more favourable weather forecast for rounds three and four, Daniel will bid to fight his way into the top ten to put his first points of the season on the board.

An additional chance to fight for a strong haul of points will come on Saturday afternoon, when the race that couldn’t take place at Donington Park is scheduled to be run.

“With limited pre-season testing, we knew that Donington Park would throw some challenges our way and that was the case in qualifying,” he said.

“I didn’t manage to get the best from the tyres which affected where we had to line up on the grid, but the knowledge I now have from Donington – despite the weather – means I’m in a much better place heading to Brands Hatch.

“I’m confident that we’ll be able to put in a much stronger showing on Saturday, which will then put us in a better position to fight for some solid results in Sunday’s two races. We’ll also have a chance to fight for some points in the rescheduled race, and starting that from P12 means we have a good opportunity to push into the top ten at the very least.

“Of course it won’t be easy around a such a short circuit when the grid is as competitive as it is but I’m ready for the challenge and am itching to get back out there.”

Daniel will be cheered on this weekend by guests from The Swiss Link and Technology Desking, both of whom will hope to see him bring home a hat-trick of strong results.
