SAS/Redline Celebrate Their 2011 Teams Championship Success


The SAS/Redline team has won the 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup GB team championship after a remarkable season, which saw James Sutton and Michael Meadows secure a one-two finish for the team in the driver's standings.

Heading into the final weekend, three drivers could take the drivers crown, but with rival Stephen Jelley falling away in the first race at Silverstone, SAS/Redline  were confirmed to win the drivers crown. Sutton eventually edged out Meadows in the final race to become Redline Racing's fifth drivers champion.

The Cleveland-based team has contested the championship since it started in 2003 and has always finished in the top three of the teams battle, winning it in 2004, 2007, 2009 and now 2011. The fourth success confirms their status as the most successful team in the series history, having now taken 66 wins in 179 races.

This season, the SAS-backed cars took 37 finishes in 38 starts, scoring five wins and twenty podiums. Team boss Simon Leonard paid tribute to his entire team, saying: “It's a fantastic achievement for the whole team. It is what we've worked for all year and the boys have done a fantastic job. It's all about the whole team. The boys have put together very good cars and James and Michael have driven superbly. Without the support and backing of SAS none of this would be possible. We wanted to win both the drivers' and teams' championships and it all came together very well.”
