Árón Taylor-Smith joins forces with Josh Caygill to compete in Blancpain Sprint Series with Team Parker Racing & Bentley
“Joining Team Parker Racing’s Bentley programme is literally a dream come true and represents a milestone moment in my career. We completed our first test two weeks ago and it’s already apparent that everyone within the team is dedicated to achieving success. I feel extremely lucky to be learning from some of the best, while in the few days I’ve spent getting to know Josh it’s also become clear how fast and dedicated he is. I’m genuinely really looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together this year as I embark on a new chapter in GT racing. The car is a big step forward from what I’ve driven in the past and I think that’s what excites me the most. The opportunity to further myself as a driver is something that I am really looking forward to.”
