The first half of the 2014 Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain would regularly see a headline that read “Marvellous Meadows Dominant at Circuit X, Y or Z.” That looks set to change during phase two of the season, with Josh Webster looking likely to make the headlines. At least that is what he has done after race one at Snetterton on Sunday morning, leading from lights to flag and beaming from ear to ear.
Redline Racing man Webster made a tremendous getaway from the standing start and this allowed him to keep Samsung UHD TV Racing man Michael Meadows at a sensible distance throughout the duration of the race. The youngster refused to take all the credit though, saying “Massive thanks to the guys at Redline Racing, as the car was superb all race and we had good pace right to the finish.”
Meadows was somewhat bewildered by the result saying, “I am not sure what is going on. I just did not have the pace. Once Josh was away it was just a case of driving around for second.”
The fight for third was a typically entertaining affair, as guest entrant Richard Muscat (Redline Racing) scythed through after a poor start and eventually toppled Paul Rees (In2Racing) and fellow Redline racer Victor Jimenez to claim the position.
Pro Am1 is describable in a few words. Rob Smith of Redline Racing led Justin Sherwood of Team Parker Racing comfortably from pole position and took the flag well clear of his rival. Sherwood fell into the clutches of new boy Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) and the pair collided, Witt retiring with radiator damage after sending Sherwood spinning.
Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport) was the surprisingly dominant Pro Am2 victor, surprising given the close competition between him and Steven Liquorish (Team Parker Racing) in qualifying. Kyle-Henney cited assistance from Supercup star Ben Barker as a larger contributor to the result, saying “By about lap seven I was struggling a bit, so I put into practice what Ben has been telling me and it worked out.”
