Two-car Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge attack for Sonic

By March 12, 2021 No Comments

Sonic Motor Racing Services will enter a two-car attack on the 2021 Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge, fielding entries in both the Pro and Pro/Am classes.

Heading the charge in the Pro class is Courtney Prince. The 19-year-old female racer is fresh out of the competitive Formula Ford category where she finished eighth in the 2019 championship.

Prince, along with most other motorsport competitors, had a lean 2020 due to COVID-19, however, a strong testing and fitness regime over the enforced break means that she is not lacking any confidence ahead of her first season racing a Porsche.

The Melbourne-base driver will compete in the 911 GT3 Cup car that Aaron Love used to finish second in the 2019 Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge.

Pro Am racer Graham Williams continues in the team’s second car in what will be his fifth-straight year with the Sonic.

Williams is a long-time Porsche enthusiast and is looking to improve on his fifth place in the Pro-Am class from 2019.

The opening round of the 2021 Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge will take place at the world-famous Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, with practice and qualifying to be held on Friday, Race 1 and 2 on Saturday ahead of the final race on Sunday.

All races will be seen live and free on the 7plus streaming app in Australia.
