Reigning Formula Palmer Audi Champion Jon Barnes will make a welcome return to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB this weekend at Donington Park.

Jon will be driving for the reigning Porsche Carrera Cup GB Champions, Team Parker Racing - the same team that helped Jon win the 2004 Autosport Caterham Eurocup Championship.

“After the disappointing weekends that I suffered in the FIA GT3 Championship and International Formula Masters back in May we decided to take a couple of months off from racing.” said Jon. “I have been itching to get back out in a race car and thanks to my sponsors and Team Parker Racing I am very pleased to be back in the Porsche Carrera Cup. I know that the car is reliable, the team is great and I had a good weekend in the Porsche Motorsport Guest Car in this series back in April, so I am looking forward to the weekend.

The one-make series, which supports the British Touring Car Championship, will be shown live on digital, satellite and cable TV channel Setanta Sports on Sunday 15th July and also shown later in the year in the Motorsports UK TV programmes shown on ITV1 and Men&Motors.
