Michael Caine took a dominant victory in Round 11 of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB at Snetterton today as he lead the race from start to finish.
Yesterday saw the Newmarket based driver rocket to pole position with a time of 1:08.387 as he got the better of championship rival Tim Harvey.
Starting from pole Caine never looked to be in trouble as he lead the field away pulling away from Harvey in the early stages of the race and never looked back.
“The first race went well and obviously I’m pleased,” Caine told thecheckeredflag.co.uk before adding “But it’s really all about the second race today, so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.”
Unfortunately after red flags and an incident with Glynn Geddie in qualifying Caine couldn’t do enough to claim pole position for Round 12 and will start from second place alongside rival Harvey.
Asked about the first corner and his plans for getting past Harvey he joked “Well, clearly I’m going to have to fire him off!”
“No seriously, if I can pull off a great start the plan is get ahead and stay there, but if Tim gets ahead I have to put him under pressure, and hope he makes a mistake.”
“I’m hoping he’ll realise we have the faster car this weekend and make life easier for me, but I wouldn’t count on it. It will definitely be worth watching, and on my home circuit I’m confident.” added Caine.
