Toon keeps pressure on Championship Title Contenders



Pete Morris was looking to continue his chase on the championship leader McAleer heading into Sundays race at Donington Park, Andy Toon currently leading the class two championship race was ready to continue his winning streak. The team was minus one driver this weekend, with the team unable to repair Dave Botterill’s car in time after the engine and gearbox failure at Silverstone.


Qualifying


Championship leader McAleer claimed pole on Saturday afternoon qualifying quickest by a split second ahead of champion Pete Morris with championship rival Andy Toon setting the top time ahead of Tim Speed in class two.

 

 

Race One

 

Pete Morris made a bad start allowing McAller and Jonhson to make it into the first corner ahead of him with Paul Winter in fourth threatening Morris from behind, by the end of lap one Morris had dropped down to fourth with front runner McAleer easing away from Jonhson and Winter. Morris battled hard to regain third sport from Winter but despite his best efforts was getting frustrated trying to find a way past. Chris Dyer in the Porsche Cayman S got off to great start and had made up four places from twelfth on the grid to eighth and was chasing down the leading pack. On lap 12 suddenly everything was up for grabs when the safety car emerged with a car stranded at the first corner.

The safety car made a mistake picking eighth placed Chris Dyer’s Cayman, necessitating a wave-by to get the field back in order, and cancelling out McAleer’s advantage at the front. This also meant that the class two field could close up on Andy Toons Class who was leading by five seconds. Morris made a good start after they were released and was soon up to second leaving third and fourth place battling behind, Dyer made the move of the race diving between Wilkins and Ellis to move up into fifth place. McAleer was able to fend off Morris as they crossed the finish line with Morris settling for second spot, Andy Toon was able to keep his lead and took the class two win with class two team mate Hugo Holmes coming home in sixth place, Dyer was moved up to fourth place after the race when Winter was given a post-race 10-second penalty for a false start.

 

 

Race Two

 

The sun had disappeared behind the clouds and light rain began to fall as the cars lined up on the grid for race two, luckily the track stayed dry for the start of the race as the cars where released on the green light, Morris again did not make the best of starts and slotted into third heading into the first corner Johnson was looking strong and threatening to move ahead of Morris as all the top five battled for position in what was now tricky damp conditions.

Chris Dyer was struggling with power and was falling further behind with each lap, it was discovered later to be an alternator failure on the car. Dyer eventually finished in ninth place with Morris taking third. In class two Andy Toon again showed why he is leading class two after taking his second win of the day after fighting off Speed who finished in second place only a second behind him. Hugo Holmes was having problems with his cars suspension and finished in a frustrating seventh place in class two and one lap down.


Quotes



Pete Morris, number 1: PCM Midlands Porsche 996 C2


All the competition has moved on now, we are not all slow anymore we are all trying to get tenths at each corner, the racing is so close, I need to find a bit more power out of the car I don’t know how strong the engine is maybe we will put a new engine in at the end of the season ready for next year.



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


I was not happy with qualifying I should have put new tyres on but that was my choice, I managed to get up to eighth right from the start in race one then the safety car came out, that helped me a lot, I managed to get past Ellis and Wilkins and got up to fifth during the restart. In the second race the car had a bit of an alternator problem I had to jump start it in the holding area it would not run right, the brakes felt bad due the lack of power and I ended up ninth not where I wanted to finish but at least it finished.


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


Brilliant day, I came here hoping for two good results and we have hit the target to keep the pressure on. It was a tricky second race, it was not that slippery but you had to keep focused, I could not afford to make a mistake, Tim and Steve both kept me honest  and applied the pressure and we had some good battles, I would have liked to have pulled more of a lead in the second race but in all a great day.
