Meadows Takes Maiden Porsche Win

1 Mins read

Michael Meadows secured his first ever Porsche Carrera Cup GB win with victory in round four of the series at Donington Park, the SAS/Redline driver becoming the third different winner in four races this season.

Starting from pole, the Nottingham-driver stormed into the lead, ahead of team mate James Sutton and Team Parker Racing's Sam Tordoff. The front two began to break clear, with Tordoff performing well until an engine problem forced him to retire on lap ten, ending a frustrating day's racing for him.

This moved Euan Hankey into third, but the Parker with Juta racing nearly threw it away with a major moment at the chicane. He managed to keep it on the track though and just hold off the challenge of Juta Racing's Jonas Gelzins.

His moment removed any chance of challenging the front two, allowing the leaders to pull away and take a superb one-two finish for the team, with Meadows becoming the second 2010 Porsche Carrera Cup Scholarship winner to take victory at Donington Park.

It was the earlier race's winner Hankey who held on to third, with Gelzinis an impressive fourth, winning the Pro-Am1 category in the process. Stephen Jelley took a much needed fifth after retirement in the first race, ahead of Nationwide/Motorbase's Tim Harvey, Team Parker's Richard Plant and Harvey's team mate Michael Caine.

Second in Pro-Am 1 went to Redline/Oman Air driver Ahmad Al Harthy in ninth overall, with Rory Butcher completing the class podium. Pro-Am2 produced a thrilling battle, with Celtic Speed's George Brewster taking the win ahead of Redline Racing pair Andrew Shelley and Keith Webster.
