22nd August 2011
Oly Mortimer and Nathan Wright both lead their motorsport championships after a successful July and August racing in the Porsche GT3 Cup and Formula Jedi respectively.
Oly Mortimer followed up his two wins at Rockingham in July with a win and second place at Oulton Park on the 13th August. Mortimer from Edinburgh in Scotland continued his perfect run of qualifying performances with pole for the first race, though Leonard’s second quickest time was quicker than Mortimer’s next best effort so he would lead the field away in race two. Despite the grid order it was Leonard who won race one and Mortimer race two closely fought battles between the pair and between Mortimer and Mundy in race two.
Oly Mortimer commented:
“We’ve made some changes to the rear of the car and I can really throw it into corners now. The second race was my hardest race yet. I know I said that as Rockingham but they are getting harder! Hats off to Graeme (Mundy) for not running into me when I turned in on him and sent him off at the chicane, but he was right back with me and even at the last corner was on my outside. I just have to say thank you to Tynecastle Garage for a great car”
The final Porsche GT3 Cup race meeting is a triple header at Silverstone during the Britcar24 on 1st and 2nd October.
Nathan Wright from Reading also extended his lead in the Formula Jedi Club Class Championship in August thanks to back-to-back double wins at Donington Park in July and a repeat performance on the 20th and 21st of August at Rockingham. Despite having to switch cars at Rockingham after a failure during free practice on Friday, Nathan still managed to secure two more wins leaving him 50 points clear in the championship with two race meetings to go at Anglesey and Silverstone.
Chris Starling of Arcadius Sports commented:
“To have both our drivers leading their respective championships at this stage of the season is fantastic. Both drivers have had challenges to overcome but we have been very pleased with how the season has gone to date with a total of 13 wins out of 20 races between the two representing a great return. More importantly, plans are being developed for 2012 for both drivers with Oly looking to step up into the Porsche Carrera Cup and Nathan into BARC Formula Renault. We would be interested to hear from potential partners for 2012”
