Porsche Title Fight Heads To Knockhill

While a large field of 25 cars will tackle the latest rounds of the 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup GB at Knockhill, the main focus will be on three, as the unpredictable Scottish circuit hosts the fascinating championship battle between Stephen Jelley, Michael Meadows and James Sutton.

Just twelve points separate Parker with Juta's Jelley and SAS/Redline team-mates Meadows and Sutton after the last rounds at Snetterton, which saw a double win for Jelley shake up the championship fight and move him to the front for the first time all season.
After four weeks away, their battle will continue at the challenging Fife circuit, but while also battling each other, they will have to fend off challenges from a host of top drivers in this increasingly competitive championship. Leading the next group with be Jelley's team-mate Euan Hankey, who will be looking to add to his two wins this season, while series rookies Sam Tordoff, Richard Plant and Benji Hetherington will all be hoping to continue showing their great pace. Also looking to get involved at the front will be Michael Caine, who has a strong record in Scotland and reigning Australian Formula 3 champion Ben Barker, who took a superb podium on his debut at Snetterton.

Pro-Am1 sees Jonas Gelzinis hold a 48 point lead and barring a complete disaster, the Lithuanian driver will take the class title. He will find it tough at Knockhill, with local ace Rory Butcher hoping to repeat the form that saw him take two top six finishes at the circuit last season on his Porsche debut. In Pro-Am2, the fight is between Keith Webster and George Brewster, with the latter having home advantage at Knockhill. Joining the grid in the Pro-Am2 class for the latest rounds will be Rytis Garbaravicius, running with Juta Racing.
