PB Racing is a sim-racing team currently taking part in the Supercup and was co-founded by Tom Parker and Scott Bennett. The team is currently managed by Tom Parker and is based in England.


For the 2010, Parker and Scott Bennett teamed up to form PB Racing with Bennett and Chris Williamson at the wheel. Due to real life commitments, Bennett was unable to make many of the races so PB went on to compete with Williamson as the sole driver until the very end of the season when David Jundt joined to make the team a two-car one once more. The team enjoyed a very successful debut season with Williamson almost claiming the Supercup title, narrowly losing out to Christoph Lichtenstein in the points standings whilst the team finished second in the constructors championship.


For the 2011 season, PB Racing were reformed for the Chinese Grand Prix with Simon Cattell and Tim-Oliver Wagner behind the wheel. Cattell was three laps away from a debut victory for himself and the team before losing his rear wing and ending the race in eigth position. Many critics were impressed with Cattell's speed in his opening race and it looked as if, although they had entered the season late, PB Racing could challenge for the teams title. After China, Teemu Toikka was taken aboard as cover for Cattell and Wagner and he raced alone in South Africa, having a bad debut.

For the French Grand Prix, PB managed to pull off a massive coup and signed Jason Muscat as the main driver alongside Cattell which many believe up and down the Supercup paddock to be the strongest pairing in the league. In their debut race as team-mates, Cattell and Muscat took a dominant one-two with Cattell lapping the entire field but his team mate to bring PB Racing up the constructors table. Although having had a few bad finishes, PB Racing still remain in the hunt for the title thanks to the strong pairing of Muscat and Cattell and the two drivers' speed and consistency leading to points finishes.


Tom announced that PB Racing would return to Supercup full time in 2012 with an unchanged line up from the end of the 2011 season with William Tringas and Teemu Toikka flying the flag for the team.
