After two somewhat difficult rounds of the 2014 Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain for Michael Meadows, the reigning double champion has launched a fantastic comeback at Knockhill by taking victory in race one of the weekend.
The Samsung UHD TV Racing driver drove magnificently on Saturday to steal two vital pole positions and he certainly made the most of that for the first encounter in Scotland. As soon as the lights flashed out, Meadows was away and into the distance, not to be seen again until flag fall. “That is exactly what I needed to do,” said the elated winner, adding “I got a good start and then was measuring the gap.”
Josh Webster has been enjoying all the success in the series of late; though starting from third on the grid for round twelve would not prove particularly conducive with further success. After spending the opening portion of the race fighting past his Redline Racing teammate Victor Jimenez, Webster would close on Meadows but it would ultimately prove too little too late. Jimenez completed an all Redline podium.
Pro-Am1 has been given a new lease of life by the addition of another Redline Racing duo, Jordan Witt and Rob Smith. The pairing have proved more than capable of harassing several of the Pro classification drivers. Pepe Massot of Parr Motorsport found this out to his frustration as he was forced to fight ahead of eventual Pro-Am1 victor Witt for fourth position. Second in class man Smith would put up an equally as stern a defence for sixth position, Paul Rees (In2Racing) would though be able to claim the position.
Sensation of the weekend has been Rees’ Pro-Am2 contesting teammate and category debutant, Carol Brown. She dominated qualifying and did much the same in the opening race, leaving Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport) to battle and best Team Parker Racing rival Steven Liquorish. Brown was delighted, commenting “That was amazing and I loved every minute of it.” So did everybody watching.
