Michael Meadows takes resounding victory at KnockhillJordan Witt scores first Pro-Am1 winCarol Brown wins Pro-Am2 on championship debutMichael Meadows swept to victory in round 12 of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB at Knockhill this morning (Sunday 24 August) with a commanding performance. His 20th Carrera Cup win narrows the gap to championship leader Josh Webster, who battled ahead of Victor Jimenez to take second place.Amid some great battles down the order, Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) took Pro-Am1 spoils for the first time and championship newcomer Carol Brown (In2 Racing) maintained her excellent weekend to win Pro-Am2.Meadows (Samsung UHD TV Racing) got the jump from the start and built a six-second lead as Webster spent the first seven laps finding a way ahead of Redline Racing team mate Victor Jimenez. Once into second, the Carrera Cup Scholarship driver was able to close the gap to Meadows, but the defending champion had things under control and drove a well-measured race to victory.Behind Webster, Jimenez dropped away in third but still took a strong podium finish as Pepe Massot (Parr Motorsport) raced hard to take fourth. Massot had fought to get ahead of Witt (Redline Racing) and finally took the place with a superb move that started at Duffus. Witt still took a commanding Pro-Am1 win while Rob Smith (Redline Racing) took second after a race-long contest with Paul Rees (In2 Racing) for sixth overall. Four laps from the finish Rees was finally rewarded as he squeezed ahead.Brown drove a fine race given her lack of Porsche experience and battled with guest racer Will Plant (In2 Racing) for eighth place overall and the Scottish lady duly won Pro-Am2 from the dicing pair of Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport) and Steven Liquorish (Team Parker Racing).Michael Meadows (Samsung UHD TV Racing) first overall:“That’s exactly what I needed to do. I got a good start and was then measuring the gap. Later in the race I eased it back, so it was quite comfortable. That’s a good start for the day.”Josh Webster (Redline Racing) second overall:“That’s the best I could have done in the situation. My start wasn’t great but the race pace was good. But I spent too much time getting by Victor.”Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) first in Pro-Am1:“That was hard work and we went into the race on brand new tyres. I’ll try and repeat that in the second race.”Rob Smith (Redline Racing) second in Pro-Am1:“My aim for the weekend was to try and beat a Pro driver and I was doing that until four laps to go. Then I was far too polite and gave him too much room. But it was a really good battle with Paul Rees.”Carol Brown (In2 Racing) first in Pro-Am2:“That was amazing and I loved every minute of it. A win in Pro-Am2 was my aim for the day so I could go home now with job done! It was a good battle with Will.”Results round 12:Overall: 1 Michael Meadows; 2 Josh Webster; 3 Victor JimenezPro-Am1 category: 1 Jordan Witt; 2 Rob Smith; 3 Justin SherwoodPro-Am2 category: 1 Carol Brown; 2 Peter Kyle-Henney; 3 Steven Liquorish
