Driver Presentation: Tom Oliphant
Tom Oliphant will bring some more international racing spirit to the Porsche GT3 Cup Middle East. The 26-year-old Brit can look back to quite a lot of experience already, as he started in karting in his teenage years, soon moving on to single seater racing. After spending 2014 and 2015 in the British GT Championship and the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup, winning the latter last year, he moved on to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB in 2016. There he scored one podium finish, ending the Championship in fourth position with 199 points.
Already being familiar with a Porsche racing car for sure will be helpful when he makes his debut on so far unkown Middle Eastern turf, so Oliphant hopes to be able to turn into one of the key players of the 2016/17 series of the Porsche GT3 Cup Middle East very soon.
