Meadows on Top as Carrera Cup GB Is Go

1 Mins read

Michael Meadows took a stunning double pole position for the opening two rounds of the Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain at Brands Hatch today, as the new Type 991 GT3 Cup racer made its championship debut.

That was better than testing yesterday,” commented the Redline Racing driver.

Guest entry Ben Barker will line up next to Meadows for both races tomorrow; the pair qualifying within a quarter of a second in terms of both their best and second best times.  “I hoped for something better but I have never been that great here,” said a frustrated Barker.

Josh Webster qualified third for rounds 1 and 2, the former single seater ace acclimatising quickly to his new GT based surroundings.

Star of qualifying though, was Jake Hill. The Goudhurst based driver first took to the wheel of one of the new generation cars in practice yesterday, yet despite this will start next to Webster for both opening races. A very impressive Porsche debut.

Karl Leonard took his Team Parker Racing entry to Pro-Am1 pole for both races, his team mate Justin Sherwood lines up second in class for tomorrows opening rounds and Parr Motorsport’s Kieran Gallagher took a fine double class third.

I am very happy with that,” Leonard commented.

Will Goff led Steven Liquorish and Peter Kyle-Henney in terms of best and second best times in Pro-Am2. “It is close this year, which is really good.” said In2Racing entry Goff. The trio are sure to provide some classic Porsche combat on the tight and twisty Brands Hatch Indy Circuit.

In fact, with the whole field being so tightly bunched, the racing is sure to be spectacular throughout the field tomorrow. With the addition of a rolling start for race 2, the anticipation builds that little bit more.
