Oulton Park beckons..

The Porsche Club makes its first visit to Oulton Park this weekend, for Championship rounds three & four. There is a strong entry in a variety of models which should make for some very exciting racing. Marcus will be testing on Friday before Saturday’s races but has already managed to sneak in a few crafty laps in a road car on Tuesday afternoon – however he was keen to point out that this was done on medical advice!  That may sound a little far-fetched but his physiotherapist had said it would be a good idea to gently test how his arm stood up to the type of loads it would be under when racing.  Thankfully it went OK, leaving him a little sore but not likely to have any impact on his performance.  So having done under 10 laps round a soaking wet Silverstone he’s really champing at the bit to drive the Hartech Boxster S in the dry (hopefully – forecast is changeable) round a circuit he knows really well, and finally actually compete in it.  He won both races here in 2010 and won again in 2011, so prospects are good, but we’ll only know for sure once the chequered flag drops.
Qualifying is at 9.20 with the races scheduled for 12.05 and 4.05.  The team will be in one of the pit garages – feel free to come and say hello...and don’t forget your autograph book!
