The 2006 season was similar, finishing 2nd in class at the end of the year, although with more class wins and on one occasion out-classing the whole field (all classes) and putting it on outright pole. In 2007 the class championship went down to the wire, to be decided in the last race at Brands Hatch. This barely lasted 30 seconds for Marcus though, as he was hit just after the start and spun heavily into the barrier. This wrote the car off, sealing his fate as class 2nd yet again, having never been off the podium all season and with 7 wins under his belt, a number only equalled by the class winner, Ben Demetriou.
After this impressive set of wins Marcus had decided to take 2008 off however his ideas soon changed when he discovered that a competitive race car, a 964 variant 911, which runs in class 1, had come up for sale. After the necessary checks it was hastily bought.
