Faulkner collects prize Porsche road car
Faulkner (29) was elated to be presented with his new car during the recent Carrera Cup pre-season test day at Silverstone. "Winning the championship means everything. It's the satisfaction and fulfillment for me, the team and the sponsors," he said. "Now, seeing this amazing prize just brings it all home to me. I can’t want to drive it!"
For most of his career, Faulkner has put all of his money into his racing and has never been able to afford a road car of his own. To get around his native Ireland, he has borrowed vans from the family garage, but now he has the 911 Carrera to use.
The 2006 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship starts at Brands Hatch, Kent, on April 8/9, supporting the British Touring Car Championship.
