Bad Luck Plagues Brands for Team Strasse despite promising start


 

It was a tough race day for Team Strasse’s four car line up during rounds three and four of the Porsche Club Championship on Saturday 4th May. A wrong choice of tyres brought Ross Morris’s No 3 PCM Midlands Boxster 987 to an early end in race 2 despite taking the win in race one.

 

It was a slow start to the race weekend as the skies cleared and the sun shone through after rain had poured for the majority of the morning on Saturday. Qualifying proved to be tricky, the rain had stopped but damp and cold areas still coated parts of the track. All the drivers went out on slicks; Pete Morris in the PCM Midlands Porsche 997 C2S took an early pole position and decided to come into the pits with 4 minutes remaining of the session only to see the pole stolen on the last laps dropping him down to the second row on the grid. Andy Toon in the EPC Electrolytic Plating Porsche 996 C2 qualified on row six with Team mate Chris Dyer in the Millers Oils Cayman S behind on row seven. In class Two Ross Morris in the PCM Midlands Boxster 987 qualified on top taking pole position.

 

 

Race One


Pete Morris started the race strong and held position during a hectic first few laps that soon settled into a rhythm but unfortunately Morris lost out among the battling group losing places and dropping him down into sixth place in the early stages of the race, Morris did not give up fighting until the very end and battled back to take a strong fifth place finish. Dyer and Toon both made good starts and where also among the leading pack, Dyer and Toon where both fighting for position but it was Dyer who got the upper hand moving past his team mate on the outside heading into Druids corner. The leading pack of cars all remained bumper to bumper throughout the majority of the race as a direct result of the position two car holding everyone up while allowing the leading car to pull away. Been aware of what happened at Donington Toon and Dyer gave each other room despite battling hard against each other with Dyer taking seventh place and Toon eighth. In class two Ross Morris lead from the front and once again put in a Stella performance despite running the car on old tyres bringing home the class two car in first place and extending his championship points lead.



Race Two


In chaotic weather conditions no one knew if race two was going to be wet or dry, with minutes to spare before the start of the race both Dyer and Ross Morris decided to opt for slicks on the chance that the track would dry out in the early stages of the race while the rest of the field opted for wets. Unfortunately it was the wrong choice and Ross Morris spun on the first lap suffering contact from behind and finishing his race early. This brought out the safety car for a number of laps. Deciding not to pit during the safety car period Dyer remained on slicks in the hope that it would remain dry, despite the rain holding off the track just was not drying out and Dyer found it difficult to maintain the speed of the leading pack dropping him down the order eventually crossing the line in tenth place. Morris again put in a strong performance but was unable to find a way past fourth place missing out on a podium finish by just one second. Toon was not that far behind bringing home the 996 in sixth place.

 


Driver Quotes


Ross Morris: Number 3 PCM Midlands Porsche Boxster 987: I’m smiling for the first race win but gutted for my own mistake in race two, the team have been great all day having to work in these conditions and i feel sorry for them that I was unable to bring the car home in race two.


Andy Toon: EPC Electrolytic Plating Porsche 996 C2: I’m really please today, I came into this weekend just wanting to have fun and relax and just enjoy it and that’s just exactly what I did. Qualifying was busy I knew I could get a fast time but traffic just did not go my way. I had a good start in the first race I managed to make up a couple of places and the car felt good but we were all fighting for position there was nothing between us we were all on the same pace so that was encouraging. The second race we had challenging weather conditions but thankfully I picked the wet tyres, the car felt strong and it was grippy. I had a good battle with the McAller’s and managed to make up a couple of places at Paddock Hill bend, the car felt really good and the team did a fantastic job to change all the settings on the cars minutes before the race.


Chris Dyer: Number 9 Millers Oils Cayman S: I did not have a good qualifying session, I got a good start in race one and managed to pick them off at the start and was up to seventh from eleventh but Kevin Harrison was holding the group of leading cars up, we just could not find a way past so I finished seventh. The second race was wet and I decided to go out on slicks, the race was cut short with the safety car, I ended up where I started tenth I really should have gone out on wets but I had to take the gamble but unfortunately it did not pay off.


Pete Morris: Number 2 PCM Midlands Porsche 997 S2: Pete was unavailable for comment.

 

The Team will travel back to Brands Hatch for the double header of the Porsche Club Championship on 6th and 7th of July 2019
