But beyond making his 24-hour racing debut at Daytona on 29-30 January, the inaugural Porsche Carrera Cup North America champion is currently keeping a lid on what precisely he will be targeting in 2022.

‘I can’t mention it just yet, but something that I’ve dreamt of for a long time and yeah, it’s one of the biggest races in the world, so I’m excited for it,’ said a driver who celebrates his 21st birthday next Tuesday.


Speaking on the latest Guernsey Press Sport Podcast, young Priaulx also enthused about last year’s accomplishment of his first significant senior title.

It was just over two months ago that he took the final chequered flag of the new North American series with a sixth race win and massive championship victory margin.

The reality was still sinking in for Priaulx at the time, but he is now more jubilant.

‘What a year last year was for me,’ he said.

‘Start of the year was good – we won the first race – but I’d say the second part was just phenomenal for me.

‘I can’t ask for a better way to finish the year and that’s why I’ve got some good things happening in the future. It all helps to be quick and to be winning championships.’

Priaulx called that Road Atlanta finale the ‘best weekend of my life’, while acknowledging the unique demands of one-make racing.

‘This was one of the toughest years of my racing career, I’d say, just because these cars are so identical.’

Famed father Andy Priaulx is familiar with the hardships his son faced along the way – not least staying alone in a hotel room for 166 days – and guested alongside Seb on the GP Sport Podcast, which is out now.
