Callum Hedge to Drive for Team Porsche New Zealand in 2023

Porsche New Zealand and Earl Bamber Motorsport have announced that Callum Hedge is confirmed to drive for Team Porsche New Zealand for another Carrera Cup Australia season in 2023. Hedge took the top Rookie honours and second place in the Michelin Junior Drivers’ standings for the 2022 Carrera Cup Australia Season. After achieving his maiden win in Townsville and a round victory in the final round of the season in the Gold Coast, he finished the season in 6th place in the Championship. Hedge will be competing in his third season with TPNZ and Earl Bamber Motorsport after debuting with the team in the Porsche Sprint Challenge feeder series in 2021. Hedge will be joining Zac Stichbury who is already confirmed to be driving with Team Porsche New Zealand in the 2023 Porsche Sprint Challenge seat. Stichbury was selected for the team following the Scholarship shootout, where Porsche New Zealand invited the five top applicants to test their skills in the 991.2 GT3 Cup car. Following in the motor racing footsteps of his late father Ashley Stichbury, Zac has moved to the Gold Coast to begin testing for his debut season with Team Porsche New Zealand this year. The 2023 Porsche racing season in Australia welcomes a competitive grid of young kiwi drivers with Ronan Murphy also recently announced to compete with Sonic Motor Racing Services in the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge this year. Greg Clarke, General Manager of Porsche New Zealand “We’re pleased to offer Callum an additional year driving for Team Porsche New Zealand. It was clear by his performance in the Carrera Cup this year that he has huge potential, and we are really looking forward to seeing how he can continue his successes with the team this year.” Callum Hedge “I am super happy to have the opportunity to represent and drive for Team Porsche New Zealand in 2023. I am excited to get a second year in Porsche Carrera Cup Australia, we have a lot of unfinished business from last year. I look forward to bringing my learnings from 2022 into this year and putting my all in to try and bring Team Porsche New Zealand back their first championship win. I am glad to be back with Earl Bamber Motorsport and continue building and growing the team. We finished last year on a high so I look to hopefully hit the ground running in 2023.”
