UFI Filters backs Seb Morris at the Porsche Carrera Cup GB
UFI Filters is once again taking to the track alongside a new brand ambassador: British driver Sebastian “Seb” Morris, during the new season of the Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain.
Cheshire-native Morris is already a winner of the British GT Championship in 2017, and will make his debut in this edition of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB together with Team Parker Racing.
Now in its 20th edition, the Porsche Carrera Cup GB remains the fastest single make series in the UK, with all cars identical, making it all about driver skill and speed. The single marque GT racing championship acts as a support bill to the highly popular British Touring Car Championship (BTCC).
The 26-year-old will be racing on board his UFI-branded Porsche Carrera 992 GT3 Cup, which UFI Filters describes as an important visibility opportunity for the brand. The car is powered by a 4.0 litre six-cylinder boxer engine with 510bhp and rear wheel drive, supported by a six-speed PDK transmission.
Alongside Seb Morris will be coach and mentor Dino Zamparelli, the British driver brand ambassador for UFI Filters in 2019.
Karl Ridings, UK & Ireland sales director & general manager UK & Ireland – aftermarket said: “We are delighted to be present again this year in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, a sign of continuity in the world of racing for UFI Filters. We have every confidence in the potential of Seb, who represents the promise of British racing.
“This partnership will further support the growth in the UK and Ireland market, where we already have a strong sales team and our local warehouse that can provide a next day delivery service to our customers across the country.”
