After making a one-off appearance in the final round of the 2021 Porsche Sprint Challenge GB season, where he claimed a podium finish, Team Parker Racing is delighted to announce that Harry Foster will return for a full campaign this time out.
Impressive on his series debut, Harry – son of BTCC racer Nick and brother of single seater star Louis – scored a third-place finish in his first race at Donington Park, despite difficult wet conditions, and followed with fifth in the second contest, despite only having a few tests in the car beforehand.
Having enjoyed success in karting, in which he competed from the age of six until he was 13, Harry looked to make his mark in the Ginetta Junior Championship as a 14-year-old but stepped away from motorsport to focus on his education, returning in 2021 with a renewed interest.
Harry joins team-mates Matt Armstrong, who returns for his second season, and newcomer Will Newnham, in a trio of Porsche Cayman 718 GT4 Clubsports entered in the series, which gets underway in May.

“I’m happy to be racing in the Porsche Sprint Challenge GB this season as doing the races last year gave me a confidence boost. I feel like there’s still a bit to improve on, so I’m looking forward to progressing throughout the season and seeing what kind of results I can get. I really loved being with the team; I get on with all the mechanics and Stuart, so it is a nice place to work together and a really good environment to be in.
“I hope to get up to speed and be at the front runners’ pace by the time we’ve tested at different tracks over the coming months, as that should give me that extra confidence in the car and a bit more pace. The Cayman is a lovely race car and I really love the Porsche brand – they produce nice cars to drive and to look at, so I thought it was a really good championship to enter as it is competitive. The whole series is well put together and the chance to win a trip to the Cayman Islands is a good incentive!”
