Dyer and Morris takes wins at Oulton Park


 

The long gap in the Porsche Club Championship schedule didn’t slow the Strasse team down as they returned to the podium in what proved to be a challenging weekend at Oulton Park. The doubleheader saw a second and third place podium for the No. 2 PCM Midlands Porsche 997 C2S of Pete Morris and one first place finishes for the No. 9 Millers Oils Porsche Cayman S of Chris Dyer.


In Class two Ross Morris in the No 3 PCM Midlands 987 Boxster was also back to winning ways taking first place in race two. Guest driver Richard Bayston was back with the team piloting the Porsche 944S taking a third-place finish in race one.


The weekend started off on mixed terms after Saturday morning’s qualifying sessions. Ten minutes into the session the heavens opened and the heavy rain forced all the teams into the pits. Pete Morris and Chris Dyer looked like they had secured fourth and fifth place as the field of cars all sat in the pits watching the time count down, unfortunately a small number of teams had decided to stay out and with only minutes to spare the rain stopped and the track dried out allowing the cars still on track to put in faster times demoting Dyer and Morris down to ninth and eighth. Dyer and Morris had time to get just one lap in, dyer managed to qualify in eighth with Morris taking fourth place on the very last lap of qualifying.

Race One

At the drop of the green flag, Dyer was able to advance from eighth place to fifth place, while Morris moved up into second place. Both drivers held onto their positions despite been under pressure from Wilkins and Cheetham. Cheetham tried a daring move on the inside of Dyer heading into the first corner on lap six but misjudged his move going wide causing chaos among the challenging pack, Dyer had to take avoiding action taking to the grass to miss the spinning cars in front, this resulted in the safety car been deployed in order to clean up the mess. The cars where finally released and racing continued. Morris still in second was under pressure again from Wilkins with Price and Dyer still in the mix in fourth and fifth place. Price under pressure from Dyer spun off and hit the barriers heavily resulting in the race been called early giving Morris second and dyer fourth place.


In Class two Ross Morris was looking strong for a podium finish but bad luck struck half way into the race when problems with his brakes forced him into the pits. The team fixed the issue and he was released back onto the circuit, unfortunately the lengthy pit stop meant that the number of lap required to qualify for a position was too short resulting in a DNF for Morris. Guest Driver Bayston had better luck taking a well earned third place in what was the oldest car on the grid just showing that the front engine old 944’s still have the pedigree to contend with its junior counterparts.


Race Two

Dyer proved the No. 9 Porsche would be one to contend with after jumping four positions at the start of Race 2 where he found himself in a battle with teammate Morris who was running fourth. Dyer suddenly found himself in second place after Clark made a mistake allowing Dyer the opportunity to pass. Despite pressure from Clarke now in third Dyer managed to hold him at bay while still threatening the pack leader. Heading into lap six suddenly the leader ran into difficulties and had to retire his car placing Dyer in first place and Morris in third. The three-car train continued to push each other right to the finish but Dyer was able to maintain his composure and take the win with Morris taking third.


In Class two Ross Morris made a blistering start and soon worked his way up to the front of the pack. Morris held onto the lead to take the win and bolster his Class two championship points total. Unfortunately Bayston in the 944 was not able to repeat his success in race one and had to retire the car mid-way through the race due to an electrical problem.


Chris Dyer: I was a bit disappointed with qualifying but I was really pleased with the first race. The second race I thought I’d nothing to lose so I went for it. Clark and Wilkins went wide leaving a Cayman sized gap so I went for it and ended up second I sat behind the leader and would have settled for second but he also had a problem so I ended up taking the win. I do like Oulton Park it’s just a shame that the changing weather conditions let me down during the qualifying session.


Pete Morris: What a cracking weekend for the Team and also Ross for the championship, it’s so close in the championship, Clark myself and Chris could all win it if Clark goes off at Donington. I just wish that they had shown the last lap board in race two I may have gone for it and maybe taken second but My son is doing well and the team are doing great so happy days.


Ross Morris: That was the toughest race I have ever had I could have cried this morning in race one when I didn’t finish and I could have cried for joy for the result in race two. That was the hardest I’ve ever worked, that win means more to me than any other. The brakes still where not working right I had to pump them on almost ever corner but it just added to the fun of the race and ever moment of that race was enjoyable.


Richard Bayston: It’s been an absolute pleasure to be back with the strasse, it’s been great fun thanks to the team it’s been a pleasure working with you all again.
