Porsche Carrera Cup Category Continues to be Highly Competitive - Brian Boyd

Brian Boyd said the Porsche Carrera Cup category continues to be highly competitive, with a couple of experienced professional drivers and ambitious youngsters added to the field and the series taking on an international flavour with one round to be held in Malaysia in July.

"David Wall had a very successful return to the series last year, chalking up a win and several podiums and finishing third in the championship," Mr. Boyd said.

"Driving the same #38 Porsche GT3 this year, he could not have had a better start to the season in Adelaide, topping the best practice times," Brian Boyd offered.

David Settles for a Close Second Place in Race 3 - Brian Boyd

Race 3 was a repeat battle between David and Heimgartner which lasted to the wire. Despite a number of attempts to pass, David had to settle for a close second that gave him three podiums for the meet and equal points for the round, although the round win went to Heimgartner based on his race 3 win.

"David was justifiably pleased for his Wall Racing team and the hard work they put into preparing the car for the 2017 season," Brian Boyd said.

"He goes into the Australian F1 round equal leader in what is shaping up to be a very competitive season.," finished Brian Boyd.
