Alongside a new partnership with BWT Australia, Porsche Centre Melbourne are excited to announce that Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Series front-runner Courtney Prince will join the Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia Championship for 2023 along with team drivers Nick McBride, Marc Cini and Matthew Belford.
Prince started her motorsport career at the age of eight in go karts and went on to contest the Formula Ford National Series supported by the Sonic Motor Racing Services team over three seasons. 2022 saw the young Victorian finish fourth in both the Aussie Racing Car Series and Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge.
Courtney Prince now takes her next step up the Porsche Motorsport Pyramid from Michelin Junior driver to Pro with the experienced Porsche Centre Melbourne Motorsport Team. The Collingwood based dealership has long supported one of Australia’s most successful Porsche teams, having won three consecutive Carrera Cup Australia Championships across the 2011, 2012 and 2013 seasons.
‘’I’m excited to be stepping up to Carrera Cup with Porsche Centre Melbourne Motorsport and BWT Australia on board to support me. I know it’s a big step, but I’m ready and with the support of the team can’t wait to see what 2023 brings,” said Courtney Prince, Porsche Centre Melbourne Motorsport driver.
Both Prince and McBride will feature BWT livery for the opening round of the 2023 Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia Championship which kicks off at the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix 2023 at the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit between 30 March and 2 April.
