Connor Adam has locked in his spot on the inaugural Super GT Series grid.
After four seasons in the Toyota 86 championship, Adam will spend this coming summer racing a second-generation Porsche 997 car in the four-round series.
Jonny Reid previously raced the car in the Australian Porsche Carrera Cup.
“I’m looking forward to the start of the season and getting out on the track,” Adam said.
Super GT is New Zealand’s latest motorsport series and combines 911 GT3s, GT4s and Ferrari Challenge cars.
All thirty racing entitlement licenses were sold within 24 hours of the championship’s launch.
Of those, there are fourteen Porsche Cup cars entered.
“There are some very good drivers, particularly in the Porsche class and there is a good variety of cars throughout the field,” Adam said.
“I’ve seen the entry list and there are some fast young guys there, but also a number of others who are pretty experienced also.”
Super GT will have three races per round, all featuring compulsory pitstops.
The length of each pitstop is calculated from a Balance of Performance system. The faster the car and driver, the longer the pitstop.
“I think that if they get the Balance of Performance and pitstops correct, it should be pretty tight.”
The first Super GT round is on January 15-16 at Highlands Motorsport Park in Cromwell.
