Thought I'd make a separate thread for Matt Campbell as this bloke is going places on the International stage and every chance that we'll see him in WEC or Blancpain in the near future.
Had his first couple of races on the weekend in Porsche Supercup and claimed a couple of pole positions and a 5th and a 3rd in the races.

Think about that.

Hes gonna go places this kid, I can see him being a Porsche Junior in coming years. I hope he doesn't do Supercars and stays in Europe, theres so much there for him with a young bloke of his talents. He can always do Supercars down the track but hes gotta do Europe while hes young.

When he gets his around the SuperCup starts this should help him immensely. In his debut to get a fifth and a third is a fantastic effort with new car new team and a track he probably hasn't raced on before

Yep.......Gotta agree with the comments about Matt. Probably a bit early to go out on a limb, but he's a class act this young bloke and I can see him going all the way with Porsche. He has a great attitude.

I agree, I would like to see him come up through the ranks with Porsche. But isn't he contracted with 888 for the Pirtek Enduro Cup? Will be interesting to see if Porsche find other events for him, and if he has an escape clause.

After winning the Aus Carrera Cup last year Porsche Australia put him forward as a candidate for the Junior program which consisted of a couple of days testing all facets of race craft from actual racing to being able to understand setup and marketability etc. Matt came out on top which gave him the subsequent option to join the Supercup with eu250k funding. I believe that there were a few people in the industry in Australia who stumped up the rest of the cost to race in the Supercup. I'm not sure how much it costs but i understand that it's around $300k per year to do the Carrera Cup in Australia.

Matt is currently a Porsche Junior driver and I think an ideal path for him is this,

2017 - Supercup / GT3 (Europe)
2018 - Supercup / GT3 (International)
2019 - GT3 (International)
2020 - GTE
2021 - GTE
2022 - LMP1

He has already started his path for Porsche in the N24. But you only need to look at blokes like Sven Muller who are essentially a year ahead of him and very fast to see the potential of where he could be headed. Muller has already competed in some big races for Porsche so it's very exciting to think where it could end up for the young lad.

If the rumors are true of a few guys seeing the potential and stumping the bill to get him international... Kudos to you, whoever you are. You have done a service to Australian racing!

A good track to start somewhere up the pointy end.

He is doing awesome.
That is the 2nd time where he has been setup for a brilliant over taking manoeuvre to lose second place. Zie Germans are cunning.

Interesting read on the people who pushed Matt along and provided the finances to get him to where he is today.

Go Matty. Winner!!! How good!!!

Late safety car added pressure of a green last lap. Crailsy also got a mention in the coverage on eurosport 2.
