Newly crowned 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Pro-Am2 Champion George Brewster

 

After a dramatic final race of the season at Silverstone, George Brewster emerged as the 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Pro-Am2 class champion, the Celtic Speed driver fighting back from an unscheduled pitstop to secure another points for the title.

The Scottish racer was took eight wins from nineteen races in the class, but was unable to secure the title before the final race. In the deciding race, contact on the opening lap caused Brewster to spin, before he had to pit to change a rear puncture. Returning to the action a lap down, Brewster fought back to take fourth in class and with it the title.
 
Brewster, who finished second in Pro-Am2 in 2010, said: “There have been so many highs and lows this season. We started on a high with a double win at Brands Hatch and kept up the momentum from there. Then we hit a mid-season blip and we went to the Nurburgring and got taken out after 20 seconds. We had small problems at Thruxton and Snetterton and all these little things cost you.
 
“I'm very pleased how it has all turned out. It's been well worth it after a disappointing 2010. The competition is absolutely intense but I've thoroughly enjoyed it. The championship is very well organised; there is a great bunch of guys and the racing is very hard and very competitive. I don't know what you have to do to get to the front of this championship and so I'll settle for Pro-Am2!”
