The reigning British Formula 3 Champion, Britains Robbie Kerr, will be racing in this weekends Porsche Michelin Supercup race at the Silverstone round of the Formula 1 World Championship on Sunday (20 July).

Robbie stunned the British series regulars when making his sportscar debut in the Porsche GB car at the Brands Hatch round of the championship last year.

Having never raced a closed car before, and never driving the Porsche before arriving at the Kent circuit, Robbie went on to record two pole positions, two wins and two fastest laps around the tricky circuit.

This performance perhaps made Robbie an obvious choice to be given the opportunity to showcase his ability in one of the Porsche works entries at Silverstone. Robbie comments" This has been a difficult time, coming from winning the F3 scholarship title in 2001, the main championship in 2002, and then spending time watching from the sidelines for much of this year, I am grateful for the opportunity to show people I'm still around, and fighting to carry on winning"

British fans can see Robbie take to the track at 11 am on Sunday in front of the huge Silverstone Grand Prix crowd.
