Harri Jones Finds New Home

PORSCHE CENTRE MELBOURNE Motorsport will enter the 2024 Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia season with a pair of champions in its stable, confirming that former champion Harri Jones will join the team this year.

Jones, the 2022 Champion, will join 2005 champion Fabian Coulthard this season in a talented two-car attack from the Porsche Centre Melbourne Motorsport (PCMM)team.

Battle hardened from a season contesting both the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup and Porsche Carrera Cup Germany last year, Jones committed to a return to Australian competition this season as he seeks to build both his driving career, and that of his own race team, Jones Motorsport.

He returned to the Championship for two rounds last year, scoring pole position and finishing second at Mount Panorama last October.

The addition of Jones to the PCMM squad, which operates from a newly enhanced workshop facility located in Collingwood, means the team enters the 2024 season with one of the most experienced driver rosters among the paddock.

The team was bolstered by the signing of experienced Team Principal Matt Cook late last year, while Coulthard joined the team in Round 2 of the Championship last season.

The opening round of the 2024 Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia Championship will be held at the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix 2024 on March 21-24.

“I’m very excited to be back full-time in Porsche Carrera Cup Australia and to be racing with PCMM. The team have the right attitude and all out approach towards the Championship this year and I’m sure our combined knowledge and experience will achieve great results on track. A year abroad racing at the pinnacle of the Porsche one-make series has sure opened my eyes to what is possible with these cars and I’m hungry to fight for another championship this year.”

“We are very excited to announce Harri Jones will be joining PCMM for the 2024 Carrera Cup Championship. Harri’s expertise and wealth of knowledge behind the wheel speaks volumes. His experience driving these cars is on a global scale and I have no doubt he will be ultra-competitive from the very first race meeting at the AGP. Harri is the perfect example of the modern young professional driver and he will fit well into our team.”

David Simpson, General Manager, Porsche Centre Melbourne

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of Harri Jones to the Porsche Centre Melbourne Motorsport team this season. His remarkable talent and unwavering commitment perfectly align with our pursuit of excellence. With a track record of past motorsport success that defines our history, we eagerly anticipate raising the bar even higher. Harri Jones has a formidable skill set and he’s proven himself time and time again. Stay tuned as we watch the evolution of this exciting partnership, marking a new chapter in our pursuit of victory.”
