Multiple F3 Cup Champion Cian Carey is eyeing a move into sportscar racing after testing a Speedworks Motorsport Toyota Supra GT4 at Oulton Park last week. The Irish man who is managed by Ferrari GT ace is weighting us British GT and LMP3 competition.
Carey told Autosport that he found the first experience of running with a roof over his head 'daunting', but grew in confidence during the day and lapped closed to the times of team regular James Kell. "When you come from a Dallara F3 to a GT4 car you're not expecting a whole lot in terms of performance, but I was really surprised by how the good the car actually was," he said. "It's an option. I really liked how the team operated. It felt like a family-run team similar to what I was with at Chris Dittmann Racing [F3 Team], so it's something that I very much have my eye on."
"We've not come to the decision just yet of what we're going to do, whether that will be the GT route with a manufacture or the prototype route. British GT is a huge championship now, so if I can get in there and impress it could do a lot for my career."
Carey won the BOSS Ireland championship for a second time last as travel restrictions resulting from the pandemic hampered his efforts to win a third straight F3 Cup title.
