Successful GT and Porsche Carrera Cup GB squad Team Parker Racing initially earned its reputation for its many championship wins in Caterhams – earning a corporate contract with the lightweight sportscar manufacturer in the process.
The Leicestershire-based outfit also undertakes specialist Porsche road car work and runs drivers in the GT Cup and VLN endurance series in Germany, the highlight of which is the famous Nürburgring 24 Hours on the legendary Nordschleife circuit.
Team Parker Racing joined the BTCC in 2015, running Alex Martin’s Dextra Racing entry in partnership with Motorbase Performance, who built the team’s race-winning Ford Focus ST. Martin returned for 2016, before being replaced by Stephen Jelley for 2017.
The team switched to a BMW 125i M Sport for 2018, with Jelley reaching the rostrum on the opening weekend of the 2019 campaign and securing Team Parker Racing’s maiden victory in Britain’s premier motorsport series at Oulton Park just before the summer break. Jelley returns for a fourth consecutive season in 2020.
