Strasse drivers take three podiums in opening rounds at Brands Hatch


Team awarded trophy for outstanding support to Porsche motorsport

Qualifying

Pete Morris started strong and topped the timing screens in the PCM Midlands Porsche 997 but had to settle for third after losing out to Craig Wilkins and Mark McAleer on the last three laps. The Croft circuit is Dave Botterill’s home track and his vast experience was put to good use when he dominated the class two timings to take pole – and seventh overall – in the Strasse 964 C2, Hugo Holmes was the fastest of the 968s in the Freeman Jewellers Porsche and Andy Toon in the EPC Electrolytic Plating Boxster qualified third. Chris Dyer placed the Millers Oils Cayman S in seventh place.


The strasse drivers started the opening rounds of the 2016 Porsche Club Championship with Pirelli strong, taking three podium finishes in class two, Andy Toon took a second and a first place and Hugo homes taking a third both in the new Boxster S Strasse cars.

It was not all plan sailing for the team,  the dedication from the team that has proven to be the back bone of the double winning championship team was soon put the test during qualifying. The 2014 and 2015 champion Pete Morris in the PCM Midlands Porsche 996 made an uncharacteristic start in the opening lap of qualifying sending his 966 crashing hard into the barrier leading into the first corner sending the car spinning across the track and into the opposite barriers causing substantial damage to the car.

The team worked hard to try and get the car ready for race one but time was not on their side completing the car as the first green flag was waved for race one. And so it was down to Chris Dyer in the Porsche 911 World Cayman S to fly the flag for the team in class one.  Dyer who qualified in sixth place was soon on the back of the leading Porsche 996 ’s heading into Paddock Hill Bend. By lap three the leading four had put a six second gap between Mike Johnson who was in fifth. Dyer was in sixth trying to find a way past Johnsons 996, A brief safety car period bunched the leading pack back up again but despite a strong performance from Dyer he was not able to close the gap on Johnson taking a sixth place for race one.

In class two Andy Toon in the EPC Electrolytic Plating Porsche Boxster S battled hard with Tim Speed who took first place with only a split second separating them both as they crossed the finishing line. David Botterill now in the only Porsche 964 in the championship showed that one of the oldest cars in the field was still up to the task mixing it hard with the class two Boxsters and Porsche 968 CS’s finishing the race in fifth place in class despite stalling his car on the start line leaving him to fight his way back from the back of the field. Hugo Holmes in the Freeman Jewellers Porsche Boxster S struggled with the setup of the car finishing in eighth place in class two.

Race two was delayed by 10 minutes due to a heavy downpour of rain as the teams lined up on the starting grid, the teams worked fast to change from slicks to full wets. Eventually the race was started  under very wet conditions, Pete Morris who had to start from the back after the incident in qualifying was soon passing the back of the field despite conditions and was up to ninth place after lap one only six seconds behind the leader. By lap three Morris was on the back of team mate Dyer who was now up to fourth place, both drivers put in a strong performance but Morris got the better of Dyer and moved up into fourth place. Morris was soon on the back of the leading three and it was only a matter of time before he took third place but the race was cut short by the red flag after a class two car spun off at Druids leaving Morris crossing the line in a fourth with Dyer taking fifth.

Andy Toon dominated the class two field mastering the wet conditions to take a convincing first place victory, class two team mate Hugo Holmes also put in a strong performance taking the third podium place. David Botterill finished in fifth place, not only did Botterill take the fifth place in style but he also did it on slicks, the only driver in the field who opted not to change to wets at the beginning of the race.

After receiving the three podium awards the team was also giving a surprise award, Team principal Dave Forrest was awarded with a trophy by the Porsche Club Motorsport team for his outstanding support to Motorsport during the prize giving awards at the end of the day.


Quotes


Pete Morris, number 1: PCM Midlands Porsche 996 C2


Brands has always had its ups and down for me, I went from hero to zero today but it was my own fault during qualifying, cold tyres and going too hard but the team did a superb job to get the car back out for race two. The car drove perfect, five more minutes and I would have been on the podium. I had to pull something out of the bag just to say a big thank you to all the team for getting me out there, a real shame it got red flagged.



Chris Dyer, number 9: Porsche 911 World Porsche Cayman S


It was not a bad day the first race the car felt really good but the safety car period did not help I got stuck behind a back marker but I finished sixth and I was happy with that. The second race was very wet but I enjoyed it I ended up taking fifth so it will interesting to see what happens for the rest of the season.


Andy Toon, Number 4:EPC Electrolytic Plating Porsche Boxster S


Not two bad two podiums a first and a second, I would have been happy just to have a couple of good clean races I could have not wished for a better result. The car was set up perfectly it was so well balanced it was a pleasure to race it.


Hugo Holmes, number 24: Freeman Jewellers Porsche Boxster S


I did not get the set up right for race one, so I reset it for the second race but then it started pouring down, but it must have been set up well to get a podium place,  I am really pleased with the result.


David Botterill, number 8: Strasse Porsche 964 C2


I thought I’d give it a go with the slicks during race two, they called us in to change the tyres and thought it was not that necessary, but when it started raining very heavy the queue to change them was long so I decided to stay on slicks. There was a surprising amount of grip out there apart from the river running across Surtees but it was fun overtaking some of the class three drivers who were on wets, so in all a fun day. Race one I stalled the car on the race line so I ended up dead last and had to fight my way through the cars at the back.
