News PAYCE welcomes David Wall’s return to the Porsche Carrera Cup
PAYCE’s Managing Director, Brian Boyd, a long-time supporter of Australian motorsport, has welcomed David Wall’s return to the hotly-contested Porsche Carrera Cup Australia series in 2016. Wall returns to one of his favourite categories when he takes to the track for a full season in the sports car series, a category he competed in successfully from 2006 to 2008.
This year he will be driving a PAYCE sponsored Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (type 991), sporting a striking red and white PAYCE livery.
“I know David is excited to be behind the wheel of a Porsche again and the car will have the benefit of first-class preparation by the David Wall Racing team,” Brian Boyd said.
“It’s also a nice touch that the car will run with the number 38 that David’s father, Des Wall traditionally raced with and shared with David in winning their respective championships.
“I’ve watched David progress as a youngster through a number of categories, including go-karts, sports cars and the last four years in top level V8 Supercars teams, including Brad Jones Racing, Dick Johnson Racing and Garry Rogers Motorsport,” Brian Boyd said.
Wall comes back into the Porsche Carrera Cup Australia series at a time when the competition has never been stronger.
“It’s one of the most competitive one-make categories in the world and is currently contested in eight countries,” Wall said.
“We had a very successful day at the Sydney Motorsport Park pre-season test day on February 10 and learnt a lot about setting the car up. I was happy with the times we laid down and can’t wait for the first round at Clipsal in Adelaide
“I am very grateful for the support of all my sponsors, especially PAYCE and Wilson Security who have been with me for many years and now have got behind my campaign in the Carrera Cup.”
Brian Boyd said David Wall has always enjoyed sports car racing and his return to the Carrera Cup opens exciting opportunities for him in Australia and overseas.
The Porsche Carrera Cup Australia field line up for the first round of the series at the Clipsal 500 meeting in Adelaide on 5–8 March.
