Wera Tools Alliance Racing Academy – Season Review – Will Jenkins

December 11, 2023

Talented young racing driver Will Jenkins enjoyed a fantastic first season in the Porsche Sprint Challenge GB in 2023, securing six podium finishes across the campaign including a stunning breakthrough race victory at Donington Park.

After earning his spot in Alliance Racing’s Young Driver Programme with great performances on his way to finishing second overall in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge last year, Jenkins made the exciting move into one-make Porsche competition with leading team Century Motorsport.

Standing out on the grid with the eye-catching Wera Tools livery on his Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, Jenkins faced a steep learning curve in the ultra-competitive championship as both he and the team got to grips with the car for the first time.

Making huge strides forward through the opening event of the year, Jenkins picked up his first piece of silverware next time out at Snetterton with a thrilling charge from ninth on the grid to third. Securing another trophy at Croft, his season highlight then followed at Donington Park.

A star performance in tricky changing conditions in qualifying secured him a maiden pole position by a quarter of a second. The Staffordshire-based racer duly converted that into a superb lights-to-flag victory in the opening race, before adding another podium finish the next day.

Jenkins went on to end the season on a high note in the season finale at Brands Hatch. A fighting drive in race two got him a podium finish from seventh on the grid, before he ended the campaign on the podium again with another third place result.  

Will Jenkins: “I’ve loved every second of competing in the Porsche Sprint Challenge GB this season. A massive thank you to Alliance Racing and Wera Tools for the opportunity this year, as well as to Century Motorsport for all their hard work.

“I’ve learnt more this year than ever before. Considering me and the team had not even seen our car a week before the season launch, we’re very proud to have progressed into a winning package in just four rounds against such a competitive field.

“Although we didn’t come away with the ultimate result we wanted in the championship, I am delighted with what we achieved. I’ve made huge progress as a driver and look forward to taking everything I’ve learnt into 2024 and beyond.

“I am extremely grateful for the support of Alliance Racing and can’t wait to continue working together next year!”
