Resilience earns Strasse first and second at Silverstone


Apart from driver David Botterill who was unable to attend due to other commitments the team where back in force to tackle the Silverstone circuit for rounds three and four of the Petro-Canada Lubricants Porsche Club Championship with Pirelli Saturday June the second.

Thirty-seven cars in total, one of the largest number of cars ever to take place in the championship at Silverstone headed out for qualifying early Saturday morning. Qualifying could not have gone better with Pete Morris setting the fastest time and taking pole position.


Race one

Morris starting in pole position got off to a good start but unfortunately lost out to his nemesis MacAleer who passed Morris heading into the Beckett corners, the front four soon broke away from the rest of the pack but on lap six Strasse driver Andy Toon’s Porsche 996 car was hit by debris causing damage to the radiator and displacing fluid all over the track this bad luck for the team escalated when due to no flags been shown resulted in Morris and Price both spinning on the slippery surface and colliding with each other sending them both out of the race in spectacular fashion.
This incident promoted Chris dyer in the Cayman s up into fifth place, dyer who started in tenth place had made up three places into seventh prior to the incident eventually crossing the finish line in fifth place. In class two Ed Grimshaw in the Boxster S crossed the line to take sixth in class.



Race two

The challenge was now on for the team to not only repair Andy toons radiators but also repair the heavily damaged car of Pete Morris but the team’s resilience payed off fixing the car with only four minutes to go before the start of race two. Morris made a good start and was up into third with team mate Dyer in fourth, the Strasse pair where soon on the tails of the leading two cars Sumpter and Bradshaw. For most of the race it looked like it was going to finish in this order but on lap nine an incident with the leading two and a back-marker resulted in all three cars spinning and colliding with each other, this now placed Morris in first with Dyer in second with only one lap remaining giving the 997 its first win of the season and Dyer the second podium spot. Despite an early spin off for Andy Toon the Strasse 996 finished race two in seventh place, in Class two Ed Grimshaw brought the Boxster S home in sixth place again for the second time this weekend.


Quotes

Pete Morris PCM Midlands Porsche 997 C2S: I was disappointed in race one after the coming together I was definitely  on the pace for a podium there was a lot of body damage but the team put it together just in time for race two. The car felt good for race two it was not perfect but was good enough for third but the top two where all over each over. The top three are so close this season that everyone are coming together they are scared of losing a place, it’s more like touring car’s than club racing but a first and second for team Strasse, a first ever I believe.


Chris Dyer Professional / Millers Oil Cayman S: Race one I started tenth on the grid, I got a good start and finished in fifth place. Race two I made an even better start straight from tenth to fifth and then I got past Price to take fourth and was on Pete’s tail. Fortunately for us the top two took each other out so I ended up taking second so well pleased.

Andy Toon EPC Electrolytic Plating Porsche 996 C2: I was happy to be in contention and was keeping up with the leading pack but I was disappointed when we had a stone go through the radiator putting a stop to my race. The second race it was a lot more positive I got a good start and managed to take two places, unfortunately I spun out on some fluid but despite all them hick-ups finishing seventh was not a bad result.

Ed Grimshaw Regal Blinds and Curtains Boxster S: My first time out at Silverstone it was interesting, it’s a long old track I was trying to get my head around it, it’s not just speed and braking it’s also knowing the corners. I had a bit of knock in race two I thought I was going to spin out but managed to hold on.
