McElrea Racing has confirmed its driver line-up for the 2021 Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup.
Among the four-strong list is rising star Cooper Murray, who last year became the one-make series’ youngest race winner in history.
He’s joined by 2019 Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge champion Harri Jones, newcomer Jackson Walls and Pro-Am contender Tim Miles – who this week stepped back as a Triple Eight Race Engineering shareholder as Tony Quinn came aboard.
Murray has already set his sights high for the season ahead.
“I’m really looking forward to working with McElrea team again in 2021 and continuing the form we showed at the start of last year,” he said.
“My goal is to win the overall championship and that ticket to the Porsche Junior Shootout!”
Walls was set to contest the 2020 Formula Renault Eurocup campaign for Arden Motorsport but ultimately did not race in any events.
“I’m really excited to be starting my touring car career with Andy McElrea’s team and all the boys at McElrea Racing, who I have grown-up around,” said the 18-year-old.
“I’ve had an awesome bond with the team for the past few years.
“This year’s a bit different, because I’m the one driving, not my dad, so it’s great to switch roles… especially with the best team in the business.”
