Andy racks up the points at Silverstone

 In addition to supporting fellow Wrda member Seb Morris, Andy Meyrick had his own races to run and had a reletively quiet point scoring weekend in Porsche Carrera Cup GB on the National Circuit at Silverstone with two top six finishes! A mystery problem in qualifing restricted the Lindberg supported Porsche 911 GT3 to 7th & 8th places on the grid, for Sundays double header races. Thick fog delayed the start of race one for 45 minutes, with competitors frustratingly having to sit on the grid waiting for the sun to start burning through. As it began the clear, the green light was given and Andy managed to steer clear of any trouble and put in a measured performance to hold off the pursuing pack, finishing in fifth place – the highest placed amongst Team Parker Racing’s five entries.

Race two later in the day took place in dry but cloudy conditions, and Andy settled into 8th place and profited when James Sutton went into the pits after flat spotting his tyres, and then was moved up to 6th place in the results, after Rory Butcher was given a 5 second penalty after running so wide in several places that he was deemed to have left the track! Even so Andy had to make a robust defence of his place at times and commented afterwards: “It was a solid weekend, despite our issue in qualifying, and we went forward in both races which is the main thing. In reality, qualifying dictated the results of the weekend which made it difficult from then on. It was difficult to overtake, given how close everything was, but you have to be satisfied with what you have – two finishes with points is good. I’m now looking forward to going to Brands Hatch and the Grand Prix circuit – it’s a mega place to race.”

The final round of the Porsche Carrera Cup will be at Brands Hatch in Kent on 20th/21st October.
