Warwick's Campbell signs new deal with Porsche
MOTOR SPORT: Matt Campbell's dream year has continued, after the driver from Warwick signed a new deal with Porsche.
The new agreement keeps Campbell at the leading brand for another year, as he continues his progress.
Campbell said he was thrilled to put pen to paper for the latest deal.
"I'll be moving on from the junior program to a young professional role,” Campbell said.
"This means I'll be racing in more of a GT-style car, as well as racing across the world in custom cars.
"It's obviously very exciting, and is the next step in the Porsche pyramid, moving on from cup racing and taking the next step.
"The calendar is yet to be finalised, but it is looking very exciting.
"There will be more miles all over Europe and possibly some in America.”
Campbell had a breakout season in the Porsche Supercup for Fach Auto Tech, finishing third in the overall standings.
Throughout the season, he won four of the 11 rounds, including a further podium.
"The wins in the Porsche Supercup have been a massive highlight,” Campbell said.
"The whole experience has been fantastic.
"It was my first time racing outside of Australia, and the results I was able to achieve were good.
"I'm happy for myself.”
Campbell also competed in the V8 Supercars Enduro series this year, where he picked up a fifth-placed finish at Bathurst, and a podium at the Gold Coast.
Campbell said a decision was yet to be made on his availability for the 2018 races.
"I'm not too sure yet,” he said.
"We will have to finalise with calender first with Porsche.
"I would love to be back, but racing with Porsche comes first.”
