Team Strasse began the new Porsche Club GB Championship season with two class one victory’s and two second class victory’s at Donington Park. Both Pete Morris in the PCM Midlands Porsche 997and Chris Dyer in the Millers Oils Cayman S showed an impressive performance both taking a top spot in the class one races. Ross Morris in the PCM Midlands Boxster 987, took both class two victory’s launching him into the championship points leader in the season opening-double header.


Pete Morris qualified to start race one 4th overall, with Chris dyer seventh and Andy Toon in the 4 EPC Electrolytic Plating Porsche 996 C2 8th for the opening race of the season, under hot sunny conditions the light went green and the cars took off. Aiming to avoid any trouble heading into turn one, Pete Morris took the inside line, giving himself the lead and ample room to cleanly make it through into the lead. The rest of the field came through the turn cleanly with Toon now up to 6th after making a blinding start from 8th; Dyer dropped a place and was now running in 9th.


Heading into lap three Dyer had made up a place and was behind team mate Toon, shortly after heading into a corner Dyer’s brakes went hard sending him into the back of Toon resulting in Toon spinning off. After the field passed, Toon safely re-joined the fight, chasing the field from 21st position. He made quick work of regaining lost track time, passing his first four cars in his first five minutes of racing. He methodically picked his competitors off one by one, closing out his race running in 8th overall. Meanwhile up front Morris was still in first place but was coming under a lot of pressure from both 2nd and 3rd place, Morris is one of the best in the business when it comes to defending and defending he did crossing the finish line in first place. Dyer had also made good progress finishing in strong 6th place. In class two Ross Morris lead from the front throughout most of the race after the leading class two car spun off in front of him but he still had to work hard fending off a strong class two field who were constantly putting Morris under pressure, new to the Strasse Family Richard Bayston racing in a Porsche 944 S in class two finished 6th in class.


Celebrations had to be short and sweet as the team had some cosmetic repairs to carry out to Morris’s car after a little rubbing from the competitive defending and also Toon’s and Dyer’s needed a little TLC after their little coming together, the speedy Strasse crew team had all cars ready in plenty of time for the start of race two.


For race two, Dyer qualified the Porsche Cayman S in 7th place overall. He showed an impressive start, racing down the straight into turn one, taking the inside line. He jumped from 7th to 5th in the opening turn, Pete Morris taking the inside line once again edged in front and was leading the race but with tough competition behind him. Dyer who had saved his tyres in race one charged forward, and was up into 3rd on lap two.


The next time round Dyer was now upto second and challenging his team mate for first place. Dyer looked stronger and after side-by-side racing for a number of laps Dyer took the lead, Morris was now struggling with grip and knew that it was only a matter of time before the competition behind took full advantage of his fading grip, his only option was to help his team mate out and try and hold the chasing pack up for a lap or two. This helped Dyer bridge a gap and take the chequered flag, his first win the Cayman S. Morris masterfully maintained position until the competition heated up in the final four laps and was unable to hold on to his position and soon dropped places crossing the line in 6th place, unfortunately after receiving a five second penalty for exceeding track limits he was demoted into 7th place. Toon who had dropped places at the start of the race put in a strong performance crossing the line in 5th place.  In class two Ross Morris was once again faultless taking the win and also taking the fastest lap for the seconded time of the day, promoting the young driver into the overall championship leader of the Porsche Club Championship. Richard Bayston in the 944 S2 was looking strong and was in among the five car battle for the lead but problems with fuel surge dropped him back finishing the race 7th in class.


From Donington the team will head to Brands Hatch for rounds three and four of the Porsche Club championship. The Sprint format will feature on the GP circuit. Race one and two of the Sprint championship will take place Saturday, May 4th.

 


Driver Quotes

Chris Dyer Number 9 Millers Oils Cayman S: I had a bit of an issue with my brakes in race one that resulted in hitting Andy Toon, this also dropped me back to sixth so I decided to conserve my Tyres for race two. Race two I got a really good start and was soon picking the cars off in front one at a time I managed to get alongside Pete and after a couple of laps he made a small mistake that allowed me to pass but to be honest he was struggling with his tyres. Pete held them up for me; it’s the first win for the Cayman so I am really happy.


Pete Morris Number 2 PCM Midlands Porsche 997: A great start to the season a win in the first race, it’s true what they say, when your tyres drop off a cliff they drop off, it was un-drivable it was under steering and very hard to handle in the fast corners. I let Chris pass and helped him out by backing the rest of the field off, I must admit I have never experienced Tyres go off so quickly like that before it was a bit scary.


Ross Morris Number 3 PCM Midlands Boxster 987: Race one was not as straight forward as the win; the leader spun off in front of me and gifted me the win. In race two I was leading from the front during the full race but again was under pressure from behind, my tyres were starting to go off but I managed to hold on and take the win.
Andy Toon Number 4 EPC Electrolytic Plating Porsche 996 C2: I was very happy with the pace of the car, I had a really good start in race one but unfortunately I got tapped on the rear by Chris and ended up in last place and I then spent the rest of the race catching up. The second race my start was not so good and I got blocked out on the first corner and then it was just a case of keeping with the chasing pack, I was really pleased with the car and was happy to take 5th place.


Richard Bayston Number 85 Strasse Porsche 994 S2: It’s been a fantastic day, the car was fantastic, the team were all smiling and happy it’s been a great day.
