Dream Shot! - Pete Olson to Pilot Porsche GT3 in Porsche Carrera Cup Asia Races
American race driver Pete Olson to compete in Porsche Carrera Cup Asia Rounds 3&4 this weekend at Zhuhai International Circuit
For some drivers, they are simply in the right place at the right time when opportunity strikes - not softly, but with a hammer –a hammer in the form of a 450hp turbo, fire breathing 300kph Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car.
“I got the call earlier in the week, ‘Pete there’s a serious offer for you – get over here, they’re looking for a GT3 pilot.’ - one of the PCCA [Porsche Carrera Cup Asia – http://www.carreracupasia.com]
The American BELL factory pilot and ChildFund International driver said “Though I actually haven’t driven the GT3 Cup car, I’ve seen the coverage on television – you’d be surprised at what you can pick up. Drivers wait their whole career for an opportunity like this” said the American.
“Honestly, I’m still getting my head around it. But fact is, I got here through hard work and perseverance, and if a door opens, I’m going through it, and I’ll be running not walking.” said Olson.
We wish Olson the best of luck in his Porsche GT3 in this weekend’s PCCA event in Zhuhai, China, Rounds 3&4 of the 11 round/6 weekend Porsche Carrera Cup Asia Championship, and in his upcoming regular season Formula Renault races June 16-17, also at Zhuhai International Circuit.
