Team Strasse Dominate At Donington Park With Six Podium Places



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


Pete Morris was unable to continue is domination in taking pole losing out to Gary Duckman who made it two poles out of two on his return to the series, thinking that the team had secured the pole position the team pitted the PCM Midlands /Strasse 996 Porsche only for Duckman to beat Morris’s pole setting time leaving it too late for Morris to take back first spot before the chequered flag fell, But Morris’s took the second best time putting him on the front of the grid for race two. Team Mate David Botterill placed his Strasse 964 Porsche on pole in class two for both races.



Race One


Morris knew that Duckam was going to fast from the start so it was important that he made no mistakes but it was Morris who got the better start putting a good two lengths clear of Duckman heading into the first corner, Chris Dyer in the Miller Oils / 911 & Porsche World Cayman S had also made a good start and was on the back of the lead three cars. It only took half a lap for Duckman to be back on the tail pipes of Morris with Wilkins in third with Dyer threating and looking strong behind in fourth. Heading into lap two the safety car was called upon after an off at the Redgate corner allowing the leading six cars to bunch up bumper to bumper, the racing restarted at the start of lap five but it was Morris who got the better restart leaving Duckman some car lengths behind but the breathing space was short lived has Duckman was soon on the back on his 996 before the end of the first lap of racing. Morris was fighting to hold off Duckman, but it was Dyer behind in fourth that was looking the strongest putting Wilkins under pressure for third place.

On lap nine Dyer got on the inside Wilkins heading into the first corner taking third place while Duckman got the better of Morris at McLeans to take the lead but Morris soon closed the gap but now also had to hold back team mate Dyer who was threating to take second from him both team mates racing side by side heading into the old hairpin. But Morris showed is years of experience to hold off Dyer while retaking the lead off Duckman despite going onto the grass on the last lap with both cars crossing the finish line side by side. Dyer held onto to third to give the Strasse Cayman S its first overall podium finish in its third year of racing.

It was not just the class one battle entertaining the TV viewers the class two battle was also just as exciting with David Botterill in the Strasse 964 Porsche battling and swapping places with Johnathan Evens lap after lap with Tim Speed threating behind in third, Hugo Holmes in the Freeman Jewllers / Strasse 968 Porsche was also looking strong and was up to third at one point but a fuel surge dropped him out of the top three into sixth place. Botterill eventually got the upper hand on Evens but had to battle hard to keep the lead and take the win Hugo Holmes taking sixth while Andy Toon in the PCM Midlands / Strasse 968 Porsche finished fourth in class two.


Race Two


Everyone was asking the question if race two could live up to the excitement of race one and the Strasse drivers did not disappoint,
Morris again made the best start with Duckman and Wilkins following closely after the first lap, Dyer starting from ninth on the grid for race two made a good start making up three places to slot into fifth place. On lap two Richard Higgins 968 let go streaming smoke and oil all over the track making the track surface treacherous for the next few laps at coppice corner.

Morris soon put a two second gap between himself and Duckman who was fitting Wilkins for second place, Duckman soon made it past to take second and then once again was on the tail pipes of Morris. On lap fifteen Evens beached is Boxster at Robberts Corner forcing yellow flags in this sector, this benefited Morris has Duckman was able to get side by side on each lap down the straight from Coppice but was unable to take Morris because of the waved yellows. The battle remained the same for the rest of the race with Morris taking the victory and claiming a clean sweep at Donington. Dyer was looking strong but was forced wide and onto grass at McLeans dropping him down the order, crossing the line in seventh place.

Strasse class two drivers put on show too with Botterill again involved in a tense battle with Speed and Evens, Strasse team mates Holmes and Toon were having their very own battle almost exchanging paint work they were that close. For most of the race Evens was leading followed by Speed and then Botterill. On lap fifteen speed beached his car putting Speed in front with Botterill in second, Toon had forced is was past Holmes and was now up to third only a second behind Botterill, the top four places remained the same for the rest of the race with Botterill taking his second podium of the day with team mate Toon taking third earning the Strasse team there sixth podium of the day. Hugo Holmes despite struggling with a fuel serge problem again put in an impressive race coming home in fifth place. The weekend results means that Morris still leads the drivers’ championship with Botterill now in second while also increasing the Team Championship points lead.

 


Pete Morris No 1 Porsche 996 C2


“That was an amazing battle, It was a cracking race, we were so close for the whole 25-minutes for the first race, I had the legs of Gary Duckman down the straight, and I just kept my foot in when I was on the grass on the last lap. Loved that, we shook hands at the end and had both enjoyed the battle. In race two I managed to make a gap but it was getting harder and harder to defend the yellow flag helped, it’s been great weekend and great for Team Strasse”.



Chris Dyer No 9 Porsche Cayman S


“I had a cracking first race, we put new silks on and the car just handled and did everything I wanted it do, it was brilliant but I nearly threw it away on the last lap coming through McLeans I went off onto the gravel but kept it going and managed to get it back onto the track and open the gap to finish third. In race two I managed to get up to fifth but was tagged from behind ending up seventh”.



David Botteril No 8 Porsche 964 C2


“A great day I managed to get both poles for race one and two I got the lead on race one but lost it on the first lap but I managed to regain the lead I’m very happy with the win. The second race did not go to plan, again I got a good lead but I thought I had protected myself at Old Hall but I ended up been in third after Evens and speed came on the inside of me, I think I got caught napping and was down to third then fifth, but I managed to fight my way back to second then spent the rest of my race behind Tom speed trying to get past him”.



Hugo Holmes No 24 Porsche 968CS

                                                                                                                                         

“I had a fuel serge problem in the first race, in the second race I still had a fuel serge problem but it was not has bad but I had changed my wheels and tyres and the car did not handle as well, I was a lot slower so I should have kept the old one ones on the ones I changed are slightly smaller, I had to work hard during race two even more than I did in the first race”.



Andy Toon No 10 Porsche 968CS

                                                                                                                                         

“I’m pleased with the podium, it was not the best qualifying session so I knew I had some work to do I had to be ruthless and put a couple of bansai movements on some people, the car handled brilliant and we had new tyres on the car so I knew that the drivers in front would start to struggle has the race progressed so I took my time and in the end came away with the podium and got the fastest lap”.
