Webster Takes Carrera Cup Title

20-year-old Josh Webster has clinched the Porsche Carrera Cup title for 2014 with two 2nd places in the final races of the season at Brands Hatch. Michael Meadows was the only other driver capable of beating him and although Meadows beat Webster into 2nd in the final race, he still accrued enough points from both races, together with a fastest lap, to take the crown.

Two Spaniards were competing in the Pro category – regular Victor Jiminez, who landed a 3rd in Race 1 battled Pepe Massot who joined the series part-way through the year. Jordan Witt took the ProAm1 win in the first race but was the only non-finisher in the rain-drenched final race where George Webster took the honours. Will Goff and Steve Liquorish shared the ProAm 2 wins.

Dan Cammish was the guest driver in the number zeo car, once again run by Team Parker Racing, and took the Race 1 win in emphatic style 3.5 seconds ahead of Webster. Having taken the Formula Ford Championship title last season, Cammish has plenty of race experience – but none in the 991, the latest variant of Porsche’s most successful race car, so his double pole plus a debut win was all the more impressive.

Meanwhile race regular Paul Rees has been granted a seat in Porsche Supercup, one of the support races in the FIA Formula 1 calendar, at the US Grand Prix at Austin, Texas on 1st/2nd November. Rees hopes to do another season of Carrera Cup next year with a few Supercup rounds thrown in for good measure.
