Tom Bradshaw and Lewis Hopkins, the winners of the 2009 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholarship Programme, have confirmed that they will join two of the leading teams on the grid for the coming season.
Both drivers will receive £50,000 for the coming season after securing their place on the new scholarship, and confirmed deals with Team Parker and Red Line Racing at the annual Autosport International
show at the NEC in Birmingham.
Bradshaw, who finished as runner-up in the 2008 Formula Palmer Audi Championship, will join defending champions Team Parker, and the teenager said he was delighted with the deal.
"I've had two tests already with Team Parker Racing and they've got a really good outlook on their racing,” he said. “There's a very good atmosphere in the team."
Hopkins meanwhile will contest the BTCC-supporting series with the same team that has carried Richard Westbrook, James Sutton and Tim Harvey to the drivers' title.
"Having the experience and knowledge of the team behind me will be very good,” he said. “We expect to be out testing from mid-February."
