Dyer takes valuable team points at unlucky Brands


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.

For reasons unknown Brands hatch has always been an unlucky hunting ground for the team and last weekend unfortunately was no different. Pete Morris in the PCM Midlands Porsche 997 ran into problems during testing on the Friday with a gearbox oil leak, the strasse team managed to fix the problem ahead of Saturdays early morning qualifying session but  where taking no chances and delivered team mates Andy Toon’s 996 who was not racing this weekend to the circuit late Friday night allowing Morris to be able to qualify both the 997and the 996 just in case the gearbox fix was not 100% up to race conditions.

The gearbox held fast but having to change cars meant that Morris was unable to get up to speed and qualified in eighth place, with Team mate Chris Dyer in the Cayman taking seventh place, the Strasse class two drivers David Botterhill and Ian Grimshaw also qualified down the order.

The weekend also marked the debut of class three of the series, featuring restored Boxsters under Porsche’s historic racing banners each car presented by Porsche’s main GB dealer outlets.
Race one was plagued by safety car periods leaving little time for Dyer and Morris to make their way through the field and chase down the leading pack eventually crossing the finish line in sixth and eighth with Botterill and Grimshaw also missing out on a podium finish.

Dyer made a fantastic start to race two forcing his way into third, but an incident on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix loop involving Morris and several other cars brought out the safety car. Morris was able to limp the car back to the pits but the damage was too server to fix. The clean-up took the best part of twenty minutes to clear up leaving only three laps remaining, Dyer was under pressure to hold on to third at the restart but despite Dyer’s best efforts he was unable to fend off Birch and settled for fourth place. Class two driver Grimshaw and Botterill both put in strong performances but were unable to obtain a podium finish.

Ed Grimshaw Regal Blinds and Curtains Boxster S: It was a big learning curve here at brands, we had a good session during testing on the Friday but that was on the short track. we were out on the full circuit during the weekend qualifying I was struggling, I was slow and I did poorly, I need to be a bit more aggressive. I was better during race two I gained a couple of places and also lost a couple of place I had a couple of tussles and I really enjoyed it, the car felt mint as always.

Chris Dyer Professional / Millers Oil Cayman S: I got a good start in race one, I had a good race with James Birch I’m happy with the pace. I had a cracking start in race two I started in fifth and was up to third on the first lap with two wheels on the grass then the safety car came out which was a bit of a blessing because I don’t think my tyres would have lasted the full race. The last lap Birch just got my on paddock Hill bend and I ended up in fourth but in all its been a good weekend just a bit gutted that I did not get third.

Pete Morris PCM Midlands Porsche 997 C2S: Sometimes you think is it all worth it, it’s lot of money to race in this championship and there are too many people taking silly risks, we all don’t have big budgets, this is still club racing and it appears to be getting worse and worse. The accident was not an overtaking move it should not have happened. The car was on the pace and I could have got third, but I would like to thank the team again for fixing the gearbox and getting me out there.
