Morris wins at wet Sliverstone, Dyer takes fifth place while Toon takes a second and third place in class two



Pete Morris took outright win in race two as the Fuel Protect Porsche Club Championship with Pirelli visited the full Silverstone Grand Prix circuit at the weekend in the Strasse PMC Midlands Porsche 996.

Qualifying


It was one of those days with light rain and sunshine making the decision hard to use silks or wets, the team worked hard to change from silks to wets, then to wets, back to slicks and back to wets again, in the end the decision was made to send three cars out on wets and two on slicks. The circuit proved to be very slippery as qualifying started; the long Silverstone circuit meant it took several minutes before the cars that started on silks pitted to change back to wets.



Race One


The weather conditions were the same as qualifying and with Morris starting from forth it was going to be a difficult start, Wilkins in front soon opened a small gap after the first lap as Morris who had made up one place to third was looking for a way past McAleer in second, with the wet conditions the front leaders were fighting for grip has they all battled bumper to bumper. Morris was looking strong and was threatening to take both second and first place but on lap eight, Morris while going on inside McAleer slide wide on suspected fluid on the track resulting in both Morris and McAleer losing places, Morris finished the race in fourth. Chis Dyer in the Cayman S put in strong performance battling for position with Paul Winter in the 996 crossing the finish line in ninth. In Class two David Botterill was struggling for grip with the Strasse 964 C2 taking fourth place with Hugo Holmes in the class two 968 CS taking sixth in class, but it Andy Toon in  second Strasse 968 CS who came closest taking the last spot on the podium crossing the line in third.


Race Two


The team had to work through the afternoon break to repair a damaged radiator and front end of Pete Morris 996 ready for the start of race two.


The sun started to sine in the holding area and there was a slight concern if the track was going to dry but within minutes the drizzle started again making the track wet and slippery again. Morris was looking to improve on his race one result and has the filed entered Beckets corner the front leaders began to spin causing chaos with Harrison and Wilkins spinning resulting in Morris taking the lead after the first lap Morris soon eased away at the front and held onto the lead to the finish despite a brief safety car period. Chris Dyer once again was strong in the Cayman S finishing in strong fifth place after a lap after lap battle with Ex-teammate Mike Johnson in the 996. The Class two battle continues to entertain and impress the crowds Strasse driver Toon was battling a hard fought fight that resulted in a second place finish for Team Strasse, unfortunately the Safety Car was called upon after Hugo Holmes went off with a suspension failure at the end of the Wellington Straight at 116 mph Holmes did well to control the car and bring it safely to a controlled stop. David Botterill in the 964 C2 again found it hard in the wet conditions taking sixth in class.


 


Pete Morris No 1 Porsche 996 C2


“The first race was a baptism of fire for everyone it was so wet and greasy I did not really enjoy the race and I managed to clip McAleer, something I don’t usually do the car just went from under me and I spun off. The Second race was ace I went on the outside of everyone on the first corner then everyone spun in front of me then it was job done for me, the car had loads of grip and I managed to pull away”.



Chris Dyer No 9 Porsche Cayman S


“I had to come in on the start of qualifying to change back to wets, the first race I picked a few off in the first laps and was up to six and had I a great battle for fifth. The second race I made a great start taking three on the first corner and was up to fifth when the safety car came out, that helped me and I was on the back of Mike Johnson who was in fourth I tried to pass him a couple of times but he made his car very wide, in all a good weekend for me”.



David Botteril No 8 Porsche 964 C2


“it was a tough Silverstone this weekend the car was just not working for me with the wet conditions, we made some changes for both races, I just had no grip on the front end the car was not handling for me this weekend”.



Hugo Holmes No 24 Porsche 968CS

                                                                                                                                         

“We had a problem during qualifying, the car was too stiff, but we softened it off for the first race and it worked great resulting in a fourth place finish. I made a fabulous start in race two passing four cars from the start line and passed two more on lap one, the car was moving around with the wet condition and I was doing about 116 to 120 mph down the wellington straight when the car just let go with a ball joint failure but luckily I was able to bring the car to a stop safely”.

 

Andy Toon No 10 Porsche 968CS

                                                                                                                                         

“The first race turned out well but the second race better, I made a good start and it was important to do so with two drivers who are fast in front of me. I tried to keep Tim speed under pressure and we both had our moments but I was always in his mirrors, I am looking forward to Donnington and gaining more points for the team.
