His performance for Redline Racing earned him the championship’s ‘driver of the race’ award.In the highest profile race in the 12-year and 226-race history of the Carrera Cup GB, drivers took to the awesome 8-mile track for a 45-minute race during the final build up to the start of the 24-hour marathon. The event had even greater significance as Porsche returned to compete at the top level of sports car racing. “It was an absolutely awesome race,” said Webster after his first experience of racing on the high-speed French track. “Just to be there was mind-blowing and it was a bit emotional to finish my first race at Le Mans: and what a fantastic race. I started 18th and finished seventh.“The car was fantastic and I just managed to pip Michael Meadows in the race. I got by him a few laps from the end and just managed to hold him off. I was also challenging the people in front of me. With another lap, maybe I could have challenged for fifth or sixth place.“The car from Redline Racing was brilliant,” he said. “Massive thanks go to the Nine Group and all my sponsors for getting me there in the first place as well as Porsche Cars GB for the Scholarship. It was a big weekend for me. I absolutely loved it and I want to go back next year, hopefully in the 24-hour race. That is my goal, to go back to Le Mans in the Porsche GT3 car. It would be a dream come true.”
