PostPosted: Sat Apr 27, 2019 12:06 pm    Post subject: Porsche Carrera Cup GB 2019 - Race 3 & 4 Donington Park Reply with quote

Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) claimed a spectacular pole position on his return to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, the former Porsche GB Scholar and 2014 Carrera Cup GB champion triumphed in challenging wet conditions at Donington Park. Reigning Rookie champion and 2019 race winner, George Gamble (Amigos Redline Racing), will start Round Three of the championship on the front row of the grid having set a time just 0.003s slower than Webster. Lewis Plato (Motorbase Performance) will line-up third on the second row of the grid alongside 18-year-old Porsche GB 2018 / 2019 Junior and current championship leader Dan Harper (JTR).

Difficult driving conditions during the 30-minute qualifying session saw a drying line gradually form on the damp track, however all 16 drivers chose to remain on grooved wet weather tyres throughout. In the latter stages of the session Webster, Gamble, Plato and Harper all traded fastest overall lap times. Having missed Thursday's practice sessions Webster's best time was set on only the 12th lap in his new 'Type 991' Porsche Carrera Cup car – delivered to the Leicestershire circuit just the day before.

Pro-Am category race winner Karl Leonard (Team Parker Racing) beat Rookie Jack McCarthy (Redline Racing) to a category pole position, Leonard finished the session just 0.093s ahead of the newcomer. Jamie Orton (JTR) will start third in category on row five, directly behind Pro-Am championship leader Leonard. Justin Sherwood (Team Parker Racing) was the quickest Am category qualifier, he starts ahead of rivals John Ferguson (Redline Racing) and Peter Kyle-Henney (IN2 Racing).

Following the 2019 Carrera Cup GB race format, Webster has already earned two championship points with his pole position, as the top qualifiers in their respective categories – Leonard and Sherwood – also receive two points each. The grid for tomorrow’s second race will be decided immediately following race one. The overall winner will draw a number between four and six at random, deciding whether the first four, five or six competitors will have their grid positions reversed. The remaining drivers will form the grid for race two according to their finishing positions in race one, any driver who records a DNF in race one will start race two behind the last finisher in their category.

LIVE RACE

Round Three will take place today at 15:55 with live coverage available online at
www.porsche.com/uk/motorsportandevents/porschecarreracupgreatbritain/stream/

Round Four will take place at 13:35 tomorrow, Sunday 28 April, with live coverage on ITV4. Both races feature a standing start and are scheduled to last for a duration of 23 laps. Having missed the opening weekend of the championship, returnee Josh Webster will want to make a flying start to his 2019 campaign. The 2014 Carrera Cup GB champion will be a force to be reckoned with for the other front runners, having competed for two full seasons in the international Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup as well as remaining a regular visitor to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB paddock.

I was at Donington on the Friday beforehand for something unrelated and realised it was Touring Car and Carrera Cup weekend and as I had nothing on Sunday I went back to watch Round 4 of the Carrera Cup Championship, the day started off a little dull but it soon brightened up and got quite warm by the end.

The Carrera Cup race was very entertaining, we were watching from Redgate and all those 911's into the first corner was quite a thing to see and hear, a bit of a close battle between the top 5 to start with until the 3 front runners broke free a little, I saw Dan Harper earlier in the day so I was rooting for him as I also like the livery of his car but unfortunately he couldn't get past the two in front of him.

The Number 9 car of Josh Webster, Team Parker Racing in the Tag Autosport liveried car won round 4 with number 11 Lewis Plato for Team Motorbase Performance in second and Dan Harper, number 33 in Third with Team JTR.

A few pictures of the day and a short video of the first corner scramble for position.

Porsche GB Junior Harper and returnee Webster Share Glory at Donington

A pair of thrilling races for the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, the fastest single marque GT racing championship in the UK, took place across two days at Donington Park.

Following a win in Round Three and a podium finish in Round Four, 18-year-old Porsche GB 2018 / 2019 Junior Dan Harper (JTR) maintains his overall championship lead. Another dimension was added to the weekend with the return of former Porsche GB Scholar and 2014 Carrera Cup GB champion Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing). The former Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup driver claimed a surprise pole position and commanding Race Two victory on his comeback.

Securing his maiden Porsche Carrera Cup GB category victory, Rookie Jack McCarthy (Redline Racing) visited the top step of the podium twice with two Pro-Am category wins. The major points haul sees McCarthy leave the Leicestershire circuit tied at the top of the table with Karl Leonard (Team Parker Racing) – the Pro-Am category winner of Rounds One and Two. A pair of visits to the Am category podium at Donington means that Justin Sherwood (Team Parker Racing) still leads the category points standings, McCarthy leads the Rookie championship while Amigos Redline Racing maintain an advantage in the Teams championship.


Race one

Dry but changeable conditions greeted the drivers for Race One of the weekend on Saturday afternoon, all 16 runners started on slick dry weather tyres for the 23 lap race. The start of the race was delayed by approximately 20 minutes due to the previous session on the Donington Park schedule over-running.

At the start pole-sitter Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) was beaten through the first corner by front row starter George Gamble (Amigos Redline Racing), the Round Two winner taking an early lead. Behind them Lewis Plato (Motorbase Performance) was soon overtaken by 18-year-old Porsche GB 2018 / 2019 Junior Dan Harper (JTR) leaving the order on the opening lap: Gamble, Harper and Webster. On lap 2 Plato found a way by returnee Webster for P3.

In Pro-Am Karl Leonard (Team Parker Racing) initially led Jamie Orton (JTR) from Rookie Jack McCarthy (Redline Racing), Orton and McCarthy swapped positions on lap 2. In the Am category battle Justin Sherwood (Team Parker Racing) led Peter Kyle-Henney (IN2 Racing) from Rookie John Ferguson (Redline Racing), however Kyle-Henney briefly left the circuit before rejoining, that allowed Ferguson to assume P2 in category and Rookie Adam Knight (Valluga Racing) P3.

On lap 6 McCarthy navigated his way into the Pro-Am category lead while one lap later the overall lead changed when Harper overtook Gamble into Redgate. Plato mounted a successful challenge on Gamble through the fast Craner Curves for P2, but shortly afterwards he briefly left the circuit rejoining three places down the order. That left the order at the front Harper, Gamble and 2014 overall champion Webster. Following a battle through Schwantz Curve with Dan Vaughan (Motorbase Performance), Seb Perez (Amigos Redline Racing) took to the grass and made contact with the barriers ending his race. Shortly afterwards Leonard left the circuit before rejoining, that left the Pro-Am category order as McCarthy, Orton and Esmee Hawkey (GT Marques).

As part of the 2019 podium procedure, winner Harper selected at random the number 6 ball, which reverses the grid positions of the top 6 overall race finishers from Round Three. This formed the starting grid for Round Four; McCarthy, Vaughan, Plato, Webster, Gamble and Harper.

Race two

Rookie Jack McCarthy (Redline Racing) started from pole alongside Dan Vaughan (Motorbase Performance). When the lights went out Vaughan made a great start, assuming the lead of the race out of the first corner ahead of Pro-Am category runner McCarthy and Pro category returnee Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing). On lap 2 2014 champion Webster crafted a successful move on McCarthy through the Craner Curves to grab P2 overall, he was soon followed through by Lewis Plato (Motorbase Performance) for P3. In unison 18-year-old Porsche GB 2018 / 2019 Junior Dan Harper (JTR) overtook George Gamble (Amigos Redline Racing) for P5 leaving the order at the front; Vaughan, Webster, Plato, McCarthy and Harper.

Behind McCarthy in the Pro-Am category came Jamie Orton (JTR) and newcomer Rob Boston (Rob Boston Racing), just a few laps into the race the pair made contact through the final chicane leaving Orton in the gravel trap where his race ended. While Orton's stricken car was recovered from a dangerous position the Safety Car was deployed. Of the Am category drivers Race One winner John Ferguson (Redline Racing) made good progress before the Safety Car appeared, moving to the category lead ahead of Peter Kyle-Henney (IN2 Racing) and Rookie Adam Knight (Valluga Racing).

Safety Car

When the race restarted on lap 9 Porsche GB Junior Harper found a way by McCarthy for P4 overall, he was followed through by Gamble. At the front of the race Webster passed Vaughan on Starkey's Straight for the overall lead of the race. Shortly afterwards Pro-Am category driver Karl Leonard (Team Parker Racing) received a 10sec penalty for a false start, that left the Pro-Am category order: McCarthy, Esmee Hawkey (GT Marques) and Boston. Boston then made a pit stop which promoted Leonard to the final category podium position. In Am Justin Sherwood (Team Parker Racing) moved up into P3 in category ahead of Knight before passing Kyle-Henney for P2.

At the end of lap 15 Vaughan ran wide allowing Plato to find a route by for P2. A fierce battle then developed between Vaughan, Harper and Gamble for P3 – Harper eventually mounting a successful challenge on Vaughan for P3 on Starkey's Straight. With just two laps of the race remaining Gamble finally overtook Vaughan for P4, he was soon followed through by Rookie Tom Roche (Rob Boston Racing) for P5. At the flag Webster led Plato and Harper – the Porsche GB Junior's second podium finish of the weekend. McCarthy clinched his second Pro-Am category victory with Hawkey P2 in category and Leonard P3. The Am order remained Ferguson, Sherwood and Kyle-Henney. For his performance, Josh Webster earned the Driver of the Weekend accolade, while Team Parker Racing were awarded Team of the Weekend.
