Cheshire-based racing driver, Andy Meyrick, made a very positive mark on his first two Porsche Carrera Cup GB races this weekend at Snetterton, Norfolk. The LINDBERG-supported driver recorded a podium and fourth place finishes on his debut in the highly competitive racing arena, and is already midway up the points table.
Wearing the colours of the Danish luxury eyewear designers and manufacturers, Andy was racing a Team Parking Racing-prepared Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car in the Pro category of the series and was anticipating a fierce battle amongst the experienced and established field.
The 26-year-old showed he meant business from the outset by qualifying third and fourth for the two races over the weekend. In fact, he held pole position until the last minute of the session when he was just headed by two other drivers.
In perfect racing conditions Andy took to the track against some far more practiced Porsche Carrera Cup GB drivers but gave no quarter and, in relatively uneventful races for him, he brought his car home in third and fourth places.
“It was good fun being in the series and I reckon I made a good start,” noted Andy. “I will take a lot from this weekend and can't wait to get to Knockhill. To get a podium straight away is something I’m really happy with and it was a great boost for both the team and LINDBERG.”
The next round of the Porsche Carrera Cup will be at Knockhill Racing Circuit, Dunfermline, Scotland on 25/26th August.
