Michael Meadows has added extra pressure on to the shoulders of present Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain championship leader Josh Webster following an enthralling qualifying session at Rockingham. Samsung UHD TV Racing man Meadows achieved a critical double pole position for races fourteen and fifteen of the season, whilst Redline Racing driver Webster would not make it beyond the second row.
For Meadows it all came down to the number two, “I needed those two big laps to get two poles and two more points,” he commented. Webster declared, “The gloves are off now!”
Following on from a Knockhill meeting which could politely be described as a disaster, Paul Rees did well to plant his In2Racing car on the front row for the second race of the weekend and to achieve a third on the grid for the opening race is commendable as well. Understandably ecstatic, he commented, “We are right there and you cannot be disappointed when it is so close at the top.”
Joining Redline Racing this weekend, Nicholas Latifi of the FIA Formula Three European Championship has been stunning on his debut. He will line up second for race one and it says something for the respect he has already earnt that a fourth for race two is somewhat disappointing.
Justin Sherwood and Jordan Witt have laid down battled lines between Team Parker Racing and Redline Racing for the Pro-Am1 action. They both took one pole position, for races fifteen and fourteen respectively and by tiny margins.
Pro-Am2 was unusually simple and the only classification among which the grid positions are identical for both races. In2Racing’s Daniel McKay will take to the grid first, followed by Steven Liquorish (Team Parker Racing), Will Goff (In2Racing) and Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport) on both Saturday and Sunday.
