Team Parker Racing is delighted to announce that Seb Morris will return to the team for the 2022 season, making his debut in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB championship.
Seb last raced with the team in 2019, contesting what is now known as the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup, before becoming a factory Bentley Motorsport driver, racing at the 24 Hours of Spa, Bathurst 12 Hours, and Kyalami 9 Hours.
He first joined the team in 2016, fresh from single seaters, where he had been racing in the GP3 Series. With budgets rising on the path to Formula 1, a chance phone call from Stuart Parker inviting Seb to join the team in the British GT Championship set his career on a different path.
After a third-place finish in the first year, alongside Rick Parfitt Jnr, (where he also won the Sunoco Whelen Challenge – earning a drive at the Rolex 24 At Daytona), he helped deliver a memorable championship title in 2017, before moving to European competition with Derek Pierce. The pair formed a strong friendship and scored two podium finishes in 2018 and ’19, before he undertook his factory driving duties.
Last season, with Bentley withdrawing from GT racing, Seb competed with Leipert Motorsport in the 24H Series and Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe, as well as the World Finals, where he claimed a sixth-place finish.
Despite Porsche machinery being new to the 25-year-old, he will quickly become one of the favourites to secure the championship title in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, though will face stiff competition in team-mate and fellow Pro class racer Kiern Jewiss.
After pre-season testing, the 2022 campaign begins at Team Parker Racing’s local venue, Donington Park, concluding at Brands Hatch on its famous Grand Prix circuit in October.

“I’m extremely excited to be joining the Porsche Carrera Cup GB. It’s going to be a big change for me going back into a one-make championship for the first time since GP3 back in 2015, but it’s going to be nice to not have the usual challenges of BoP as everyone is in the same car. I’m confident my own abilities, so a one-make championship appealed to me. The last time I did one on home soil was Ginetta and I did all right there!
“I was looking at all the figures of the TOCA package and I thought “why don’t I go and do Porsche?” I got speaking to Stuart and he managed to wrangle another car from Porsche for me, plus it is fantastic to return to the team.
“I’ll be going full steam ahead this season. I had a couple of races last year, but it’s imperative that I have a good year and that I’m in the car regularly, which some of the GT drives I was offered couldn’t guarantee. I’ll be going for nothing less than the championship title, so it should be an interesting year and I can’t wait to start testing.”
