Michael Meadows asserted his authority on the Porsche Carrera Cup GB during testing at Knockhill yesterday (Friday 22 August) as drivers tackled the all-action Scottish track ahead of rounds 12 and 13 of the season.
However, once again it was very close at the top of the times as Meadows (Samsung UHD TV Racing) headed title leader Josh Webster (Redline Racing) by just over a tenth of a second in the morning test session. With some rain for the second test session, the times from the morning session set the mark for the day.
Victor Jimenez (Redline Racing) was a strong third, just ahead of the impressive Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) who topped the Pro-Am1 times going into only his second weekend in the Carrera Cup GB. However, his team mate Rob Smith was less than a tenth of a second behind as Pepe Massot (Parr Motorsport) completed the top six.
In Pro-Am2, championship newcomer Carol Brown made a hugely impressive debut with In2 Racing to set the pace at her local track. With Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport) and Steven Liquorish (Team Parker Racing) very close on times, there should be another fine contest in the category.
Michael Meadows (Samsung UHD TV Racing) fastest overall:
“It was a good dry session in the morning. Luckily it stayed dry so we got some good laps in and that allowed us to try quite a few things on the car which worked quite well. Really happy with it and it bodes well for tomorrow.”
Josh Webster (Redline Racing) second overall:
“I had a test on Tuesday which went really well and was my first time at Knockhill. I’m still learning about the car and the circuit but the car felt good. It’s looking like it is going to be between me and Michael again.”
Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) first in Pro-Am1:
“It was good in the dry. It was slippery in places but towards the end the track came alive as there was a bit more rubber down. Other than that it was a good session for me. I’m happy with the lap times and I just can’t wait for qualifying now.”
Carol Brown (In2 Racing) first in Pro-Am2:
“It was fantastic. You can’t beat being top in my class in my first time out. The car is phenomenal! It felt strange with the wets in the afternoon but once I got used to it and went back to the slicks it felt awesome!”
Rounds 12 and 13 will take place at the Scottish circuit this weekend. More news and race reports to follow.
