John McCullagh Column #1

John McCullagh looks forward to another race

Congratulations and good luck to Porsche Road & Race on the launch of this exciting new website, celebrating something that is also very close to my heart – the powerful, stunning and exquisite Porsche marque! I’m delighted to be a columnist, and I hope you’ll find them a lot different to other racing driver blogs that you might have read. For a start, mine won’t be tales of a young up-and-coming racing driver who professes to one day be the next Mark Webber! Don’t get me wrong – I’ve always been ambitious and I’m fiercely competitive out on track, but racing in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB means far more to me than personal best sectors and trophies. It’s a life choice that keeps me physically fit and mentally sharp – and I hope that it’s an inspiration to others who also believe that life begins at fifty.

John McCullagh gets a good start at Snetterton

Motor racing, especially behind the wheel of a 460bhp/180mph 911 GT3 Cup, is an exhilarating experience – and as we do everything to the highest and most professional level we can, we run my motorsport operation as a business venture. With magnificent Porsche GB support and VIP hospitality, large trackside crowds and races broadcast live on ITV, the Carrera Cup GB is a great promotional platform for commercial and trade sponsors – and I work very hard on attracting partners and even harder looking after them. But more about that in a later column!
