Andy Toon takes double class two win at Silverstone, Morris back to winning ways


Strasse Silverstone report 2016


Qualifying


The team arrived at Silverstone for rounds three and four of the Porsche Club Championship looking to improve from the first rounds at Brands Hatch. The team prior to Silverstone were 12 points behind first place in the Team championship  and with Champion Pete Morris only completing one race at Brands Morris had to put in strong performance to gain valuable points in order to retain this 2014 and 2015 drivers’ championship title. Andy Toon was also looking to continue his domination in class two.


The team started strong on the Sunday morning with Morris snatching pole on the last lap of qualifying to claim both race one and race two pole position slots in the Porsche 996 C2 with team mate Toon taking the class two poles in the Boxster S.



Race One

 

Morris was slow off the line and it was McAleer who took the lead heading into the first corner with Morris slotting into second place, Morris was also feeling the pressure from Johnson who was now threatening to take second spot from Morris. By lap three Johnson moved up into second with Morris now in third after struggling selecting gears, meanwhile Chris Dyer in the Cayman S was battling for seventh place but his effects were cut short after he spun out on oil put down by class two team mate David Botterill after having a gearbox failure in his Porsche 964 C2.

 

Dyer was unable to restart the Cayman cutting short his race. With Botterill now also retired it was down to Andy Toon and Hugo Holmes to push for a class two podium finish but the gremlins were not finished with the team, Holmes was also forced to retire due to an electrical problem with the Boxster. Morris despite having difficulties selecting gears claimed the last spot of the podium taking third spot, Toon in the class two Boxster  secured first place after coming out the victor in the class two battle.

 

 

Race Two

 

With the gremlin removed the Strasse team lined up on the grid with the exception of Botterill who had decided to start from the pits. The 964 C2 was stuck in third gear after the gearbox failure in race one and the decision was made to go out for one lap in order to obtain some points however Botterill decided to continued the race but stuck in third gear the stress on the engine proved too much igniting the rear end forcing him to retire the car into the pits with the engine in flames.

 

Morris made a bad start and found himself once again in third heading into the first corner, but with true grit and determination he was soon back in front and by the end of lap one he was back on top with a 4 second lead. Dyer also made a good start and was soon in a tense mid-field battle with Moudi and Higgins for ninth place. In class two Toon had pulled away from Cheetham and Speed to take a dominating win and a second class two win of the day. Morris despite under pressure from McAleer in the last two laps took his first class one win of the 2016 season with Dyer coming home in eleventh place, Holmes in the class two Boxter crossed the line in seventh place, sixth in class.e.


Quotes



Pete Morris, number 1: PCM Midlands Porsche 996 C2


I had two bad starts today but I was happy to settle for third in the first race, I pushed hard for second but could not get past Mike Johnson. I had new tyres for the second race and I knew that I had to push hard, I managed to get past Johnson to move back into second then I was side by side at beckets with McAleer , it was almost like playing chicken but I came out on top and moved up to first. I pushed hard and soon gained a four second lead, I know that McAleer always comes on so strong in the last ten minutes so getting a good lead is so important so fair play to McAleer.  It was a good race but i could have done with a little more power.



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


I did not have a very good first race someone put oil down all over the track and i spun and was not able to restart the car. The second race I had a great start and had a good battle with Higgins and Moudi and finished eleventh, but I am happy with the result, it was a disappointing result for the first race but that’s racing for you.




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


A great day it’s just what we wanted to achieve today gaining valuable points for the team, I was made to fight for the win in the first race and the car felt beautiful, I got a good start in both races, the first race I had a good battle with Tim and Steve but I managed to come out on top. The second race we were keeping up with the class one cars for the first couple of laps I dropped down to second but soon took back first place and manged to put a good gap between myself and second to take the win.


Hugo Holmes, number 24: Freeman Jewellers Porsche Boxster S


it was pity about the first race, a twenty pence electrical cable coming off the car resulted in only doing three laps but during that time the car felt good. The second race I just wished I had a little more track time, I got stuck behind a slower class one car and so lost the battle with Paul Seagrave, but in all a good race.
