Caine confirms Carrera Cup GB return

Michael Caine is the latest title contender to confirm plans for another challenge on the Porsche Carrera Cup GB and is determined to go one better than his overall runner-up finish in the 2008 championship.Caine will move back to Motorbase Performance for the coming season, having previously raced with the team in 2006, his first season in the Carrera Cup. Last year, Caine won four races and finished just 12 points behind Tim Harvey in the title race."I've been very lucky to keep my sponsors and add some new ones to enable me to go racing again," said Caine. "I want to carry on from where I was in the middle of 2008. We know we're competitive; we've just got to try and go one better this year," said Caine. "But overall, I'm just very lucky to be going racing again."After two years with Team Parker Racing, in which he finished fourth and then second in the Carrera Cup GB, Caine is now heading back to Motorbase. "David Bartrum at Motorbase has worked incredibly hard to make this happen," said Caine, who will also take a mentoring role with the team's new Carrera Cup racers Ollie Jackson and George Richardson.Bartrum is delighted to have Caine to lead the team on its return to the Carrera Cup after a year's sabbatical. "I'm over the moon that Michael is going to be racing with us again," said Bartrum. "He's a great character and a race winner; he's the sort of guy that fits our team. He will be a very good role model for our two new young racers and he'll work very well with them."
