Michael Meadows wins the season finale in tough conditionsScholarship racer Josh Webster takes championship titleGeorge Brewster and Steven Liquorish win in Pro-Am1 and Pro-Am2While Michael Meadows won the race, Josh Webster won the championship crown in a dramatic Porsche Carrera Cup GB season finale in the rain of Brands Hatch this afternoon (Sunday 12 October). In Pro-Am1, George Brewster (Welch Motorsport) took victory as increasing rain made track conditions challenging and some drivers pitted to change to wet weather tyres. Meanwhile, Steven Liquorish (Redline Racing) won Pro-Am2 and sealed the category title by a single point from Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport).The rain had started by the time the grid assembled but all drivers stayed on slicks for the rolling start. Dan Cammish (Team Parker Racing) shot clear at the start and went clear as Meadows (Samsung UHD TV Racing) worked ahead of title rival Webster (Redline Racing). Behind them, a fierce battle raged between Pepe Massot (Parr Motorsport), Victor Jimenez (Redline Racing) and Jake Hill (In2 Racing) who had stormed up from the back of the grid in spectacular style.Up front, Cammish elected to pit after nine laps as the rain increased. He opted to change to wet tyres, but conditions then stabilised and it ultimately proved to be the wrong call. Meadows and Webster stayed out on slicks and ran to the flag for first and second, while Hill claimed an impressive third place.There was some mighty battling in Pro-Am1 and through it all came Brewster to claim a cracking victory after battling ahead of Rob Smith (Redline Racing). Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport) made the early running in Pro-Am2 from Liquorish and Will Goff (In2 Racing). However, Kyle-Henney made the call to go for wets while Liquorish stayed out and was able to clinch the Pro-Am2 title by the smallest of margins.Michael Meadows (Samsung UHD TV Racing) first overall:“It’s been me and Josh at the front all year. I tried to give the other guys an opportunity to get up to us and fight with Josh. I knew he’d make it easy for me to get past, but he’s done very well all year.”Josh Webster (Redline Racing) second overall:“The conditions were horrendous and you just don’t get any grip from the slicks. I knew we were on the same tyres and same set up, so whatever Michael did, I was going to do the same. I’m absolutely over the moon!”George Brewster (Welch Motorsport) first in Pro-Am1:“I knew I had to be smooth and consistent. I could see Rob Smith ahead and I knew if he stayed out, I should as well. When you’ve done a lot of racing at Knockhill, you get plenty of experience of conditions like that. It’s a great result.”Steven Liquorish (Team Parker Racing) first in Pro-Am2:“It was very, very slippery but I made the call to stay out. The team called me in and for about the first time this season I saw the pit board. But I decided it wasn’t wet enough and I’d driven in those conditions on slicks before.”Full results for the Carrera Cup GB are available at www.tsl-timing.co.uk
