Outstanding Porsche Carrera Cup GB result caps superb weekend for Team Parker Racing

Team Parker Racing enjoyed a remarkable weekend (August 1/2) of racing at Oulton Park and Donington Park which was capped by a superb one-two-three in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB.

Fielding cars in the British Touring Car Championship, PCCGB, and British GT Championship across two venues, the team knuckled down and reaped rewards with not only an overall podium sweep, but five victories out of six available across all three classes.

The standout result in race one, where Josh Webster led Porsche Junior Harry King and Pro-Am racer Esmee Hawkey across the line was supported by second place class finishes for Ryan Ratcliffe and Justin Sherwood.

The second race went the way of Harry, with Esmee claiming another win and Justin Sherwood also winning in Am, with podium finishes for Josh and Ryan. It was a tough debut for Justin Armstrong, who has graduated to the series from a successful stint in Caterham racing, but he will aim to bounce back next time out.

It was also a good weekend back in the BTCC for Stephen Jelley in the team’s BMW 125i M Sport, as he battled from 15th in qualifying to claim two ninth place finishes in races one and two, and was unlucky to be spun in race three, crossing the line just out of the points in 18th.

At Oulton Park, the team’s ethic was further demonstrated as they worked diligently to get the Bentley Continental GT3 of Nick Jones and Scott Malvern to a place both drivers were comfortable, which was reflected in both drivers’ lap times. While 10th in race one and retirement after an incident with a GT4 car were not headline results, everyone left the circuit feeling positive for the next round at Donington Park.

For Stephen in the BTCC, and Josh, Harry, Esmee, Ryan, and both of the Justin’s in the Porsche Carrer Cup GB, there is little time to recover as they return to action on the daunting Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit next weekend (August 8/9). Links to live coverage will once again be available on the official Team Parker Racing social media channels.
