Successful start to 2018 for Team Strasse


Team Strasse travelled to Donington Park 14th April for the opening two rounds of the 2018 Petro-Canada Porsche Club Championship with Pirelli. Chris Dyer was back in the Cayman S with Andy Toon in the Porsche 996 and Pete Morris in the new 997, in class two David Botterill returned in the Porsche 964 with newcomer Ed Grimshaw in class two Boxster S.


Qualifying


Pete Morris was setting the pace early in qualifying in his new 997, the model newly eligible this 2018 season. Morris finished the 20-minute session in fourth, ahead of the Cayman S of team-mate Chris Dyer in fifth.



Race One

An early spin leaving a car stranded on the infield brought out the first safety car of the season on lap one but It wasn’t long before we were back racing. Wilkins led with Sumpter in second, Morris made a good restart and was up into third with Dyer in fifth, McAleer in fourth found a way past Morris and moved up into third on lap six but a gear linkage failure moments after put an end to McAleer’s race promoting Morris into third. At the end of lap 13 the race was halted once again and the red flag was introduced after the Strasse new boy Grimshaw spun out and unfortunately was impacted by another car resulting in front end damage and a DNF on his first ever race. Morris was happy to take the third spot with Dyer taking fourth, Andy Toon crossed the line in seventh place with David Botterill taking sixth place in class two.



Race Two

It was Sumpter again who made the best start, Morris also making a good start was side by side with McAleer going into the first corner.  McAleer gained the advantage and held onto second but a gear linkage problem once again put an end to McAleer’s race moving Morris into second. Dyer made a blistering start and was up into fourth ahead of Birch and Clark on the first lap. Once again McAleer’s car was deemed to be in a dangerous place and so the safety car was deployed on lap three but by lap six the field was released to start again. Sumpter wasn’t going to let this one slip through his hands and soon put in the fastest lap of the race, Meanwhile Dyer had lost a place and was now in fifth, Dyer soon took the place back and finished again in Fourth Place with Morris holding on to take second. Andy Toon unfortunately lost a number of places at the start of the race after missing a gear but despite this set back still managed to claw his way back into ninth place.

In Class two Botterill finished in seventh place, Ed Grimshaw despite the DNF in race one was back ready for race two after the team managed to fix the front end damage in time. Grimshaw put in good performance for his second ever race bringing home the Boxster eighth in class.



Quotes


Pete Morris PCM Midlands Porsche 997 C2S: It’s a brand new car and a heavy car , normally the new cars don’t perform well at the start of the season due to the weight but a third and a second I’ll take that any day. We took a bit of weight out for the second race as we over weight and the car performed brilliantly but the brakes where fading come the end of the race.

Chris Dyer  Professional / Millers Oil Cayman S: I thought my qualifying time would be better to be honest, I made a good start in race one and was up to fourth. Second race I started in seventh and I made a really good start and was up to fourth again, I got passed by one of the other Caymans and lost fourth but I knew that he was working his tyres way to hard so I just waited and took back fourth place.

Andy Toon EPC Electrolytic Plating Porsche 996 C2: I’m pleased, I’m happy with the results, the first race I made up a couple of places and a good battle. The second race I felt that I drove better but I made a mistake and missed a gear at the start and dropped four places but I made it back up to ninth, but once again the team where brilliant.

David Botterill Strasse Porsche 964 C2: It was an enjoyable day, the car is running a lot better than it was last year, we just need to get more weight out of it now and we should be up with the Boxters. I was having a race with them even though I was a 100 yards behind them.

Ed Grimshaw Regal Blinds and Curtains Boxster S: A Shaky start, the practice was good and qualifying was ok, the first race it was all about finding the pace but I had a little bit of a spin and a ding but the support team where angels, I honestly thought that I wouldn’t get back out. Second race felt better, I was a lot more confident but the team made it for me, a great weekend, really enjoyed it.
