Two drivers go forward to International ScholarshipPorsche Supercup opportunity for Lloyd and GelzinisEndorsement of high standard in Carrera Cup GBPorsche Carrera Cup GB front runners Daniel Lloyd and Jonas Gelzinis will both contest this year’s Porsche International Cup Scholarship, which gives them the chance to secure a significant element of a Porsche Supercup budget for 2014.Talented young drivers from across the national Carrera Cups will take part in an assessment programme in early October and one of them will secure a 200,000 Euro support package towards graduation into the 2014 Porsche Mobil1 Supercup.“This really is an unbelievable honour,” said Lloyd, who is currently lying fourth in the Carrera Cup standings. “To have been the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar for two seasons has been amazing, but to now be put forward for the International one is a dream come true. It means so much that everyone at Porsche has the confidence in me to represent Carrera Cup GB. I’ll give it absolutely everything – I’m so grateful for their incredible support.”“It’s fantastic news: I was surprised but very pleased,” said Gelzinis. “To race in the Supercup is my dream, but it is always about budget. It is what I want to do next and the Scholarship is a great opportunity for your future. I have to take this opportunity to show my ability. With the Scholarship, we could certainly make the move up to Supercup.
