Ross Wylie, from Thornhill near Dumfries, got his Porsche Carrera Cup GB campaign off to a flying start at Donington Park last weekend (22-23 Apr). Ross swept his Glenturret Porsche Carrera Cup car to third place in the Pro-Am category in the opening race and fourth in the second – denied a second podium by a mere 0.647secs. 

Wylie topped the Pro-Am times in qualifying at the halfway stage but had to be content with the second fastest time in the 30mins session – 10th overall around the 2-mile Leicestershire venue.
He overcame very tricky conditions due to rain to claim a brilliant Pro-Am podium placing in Race 1, Wylie consistently running inside his class top-three throughout the 24-lap, 30mins race. Even worse conditions prevailed in the second race which saw Ross just miss out on a second podium as he set a searing pace in the second half of the race – including setting the fastest Pro-Am race lap.

Ross Wylie (GB):
Age 31. Born & Lives Thornhill nr Dumfries, Scotland:

“I’m moderately happy with what was achieved in The Glenturret Porsche in what were very difficult and demanding conditions for both races.

“We had mixed and difficult conditions for both races. The track was really greasy for Race 1, very slippery. I had some good battles and was pleased with a podium finish. 

“The heavens opened for the second race and I came close to achieving another podium. I was catching the top-three Pro-Am guys over the last 10 laps once the tyre pressures came up and also set the fastest Pro-Am race lap. I’m hoping we’ll be even more competitive for the next races at Brands.”
