Josh Webster of Redline Racing continued his recent run of good form in the 2014 Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain in Qualifying at Snetterton on Saturday. The former single-seater superstar claimed pole position for both races ten and eleven of the season, besting former double champion Michael Meadows (Samsung UHD TV Racing).
Testing on Friday had seen Webster’s stunning purple and white machine sitting at the top of the time sheets but the youngster had not been getting ahead of himself prior to qualifying.
Therefore the result was even more pleasing. “This was the session I had to do it. Michael and I are fighting for the championship but we have respect for each other,” confirmed the present championship leader.
Meadows was not too disheartened by the result, adding, “I am reasonably happy with the car but I am still adapting back to the Carrera Cup machine after driving some other cars recently.”
The tale of Pro-Am1 is somewhat more convoluted than perhaps a qualifying session really ought to be. Pepe Massot (Parr Motorsport) was once again on stunning form following his Croft debut and emulated Webster by taking pole position for both races. However, for race one he will start five positions lower due to a five place grid penalty from Croft. He will also be in a different class, having been re-evaluated as a Pro class driver. This moves Justin Sherwood (Team Parker Racing) to the front of Pro-Am1 for race one and Rob Smith (Redline Racing) to the fore for race two.
Pro-Am2 once again proved to be the most entertaining category, with Steven Liquorish (Team Parker Racing) and Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport) once again duelling it out for honours. It was only fair therefore, that they share the pole positions, for races eleven and twelve respectively.
