Ross Morris takes class two podium in difficult Brands outing for Team Strasse


Ross Morris takes class two podium in difficult Brands outing for Team Strasse
Team Strasse collected its twelveth Porsche Club Championship podium finish at Brands Hatch last weekend. Though both races had zero full-course cautions compared to last year’s race, there were still plenty of mechanical woes for the team to contend with.

It’s been a tough year for the triple championship winners this year having to contend with mechanical and gremlin issues throughout the season and Brands Hatch was no different with issues for both class one drivers Chris Dyer and Pete Morris. With both Botterill and Holmes not making the journey south this left only one class two contender for the weekend Ross Morris who again battled hard to take a third place finish in race two.
Qualifying proved to be difficult for Pete Morris who qualified in tenth place with team mate Andy Toon in eleventh and Chris Dyer behind in twelveth .  Ross Morris in class two qualified fourth in class.




Race One

 

The race got under way under bright sunshine. Morris, Toon and Dyer holding there grid positions gave the press photographers plenty of photo opportunities  as all three class one Strasse cars looked impressive racing bumper to bumper. It was not long before the problems started, smoke started to pour from the rear end of Morris’ car and soon after he was forced to pit leaving Toon and Dyer to battle for eighth place.

Morris re-joined the race some laps later but was not classified due the lack of laps completed within the race time. Dyer eventually got the better of team mate Toon to take eighth place with Toon behind taking ninth. In class two despite his best efforts young Ross Morris in the Boxster was unable to find a way past Steve Cheetman for third place crossing the line to take fourth.


Race Two

 

Dyer had been complaining that the cockpit was filling up with smoke during the first race, a leaking power steering pipe was the issue so a quick fix was required before race two. The problem was almost the same for Morris with a small oil leak causing the issue again the team worked hard to get Morris out in time for race two. Minutes before race two a heavy down pour resulted in  race control announcing  a wet race, a quick dash back into the holding area was required and the team had to work hard to make a quick change to wets.

Starting in the same positions as race one the green lights where on and we were racing again. It was not long into the race when the mechanical problems started again for the team with Pete Morris having to retire due to brake failure and Dyer retiring due to engine failure, this left only Andy Toon in the class one battle who once again brought the car home safe and sound in ninth place. In class Two Ross Morris made an impressive start and was up to third place mid-way through the race after getting the better of Paul Seagrave and was soon behind the leaders but unfortunately the rain stopped and Morris was forced to back off in order to save the tyres and settling for third place.

I went off during race one after the rear brake duct came off and was catching the back wheel, in race two I got a really good start and was up to fourth going into the first corner but I got shoved wide and ended up at the back of the class one field. I managed to get back into fourth but I went off on the oil a couple of times but I’m happy with fourth place.

I’m really pleased with the results today, I was struggling with the brakes during race one so we changed the discs and it felt a lot better during the second race but unfortunately I must have over cooked them and I had to ease off the pace.  There was also a lot of fluid on the track too.

 

David Botterill No 8 Strasse 964 C2

 

I was down on time this weekend. I just struggled today around the left hand corners, we changed the settings for race two, the first two laps I was on the pace and keeping up to the Boxster’s and then it just seemed that the tyres went off and they disappeared into the distance. The car then just slowed down and I thought has the engine blown. I was about to pull over but I checked the brake pedal first and the peddle had stuck down so I released it and the engine was fine but by then I was around fifteen seconds behind the leaders.
