Meadows Closes In On Carrera Cup Title With Double Brands Pole

1 Mins read

Michael Meadows took a huge step towards successfully defending his Porsche Carrera Cup GB championship title by claiming a dominant double pole position for the final two rounds of the season.

Meadows, as he has so often done this season produced two breath taking laps that proved to be way beyond the reach of his opponents to secure two further championship points and put him in prime position to win the title.

He said: “That’s exactly what we wanted. With the weather forecast for tomorrow, you want to be at the front. We’re really happy with where we are at and two more championship points is good.”

Rory Butcher proved to be Meadows’ nearest challenger, securing two second place starts in his Celtic Speed prepared machine.

He said: “I’m really happy with P2 for both races. It was such a buzz out there and I gave every single corner my all. I had a big spin at Stirling’s when I pushed the limits just a bit too far.”

Dan Lloyd managed two thirds thanks to a last gasp effort while Stoneman and Gelzinis shared fourth and fifth places.

This was not the outcome Gelzinis had hoped for and makes his title hopes even slimmer than they were coming into the race meeting.

In Pro-Am1 Dan De Zille claimed a double pole ahead of team mate and class champion Victor Jiminez. Justin Sherwood and George Brewster claimed a third and a fourth each.
