For the second time in 2017, Porsche Centre Silverstone hosted customers at the Porsche Carrera Cup at Silverstone Race Circuit. The 911 GT3 can average over 105 mph around the 1.64-mile Silverstone National circuit; the fast straights are linked by slow corners that provide good overtaking opportunities.
Round 13 saw a win for Dino Zamparelli who completed the 27 laps in a time of 25:49.282 which brings him into current 2nd place for the Championship standings. The Championship has never been so close with Charlie Eastwood, Dan Cammish and Dino Zamparelli all fighting for first place. Charlie Eastwood, the Porsche GB Scholar, maintains his position at the top of the standings with one race to go.
As well as the action from the Carrera Cup, two Dunlop MSA British Touring Cars Championship races also took place at Silverstone on the weekend. The guests enjoyed Porsche hospitality which included a guided paddock tour with Emma Watson from the Motorsport Team. The tour incorporated a talk from Charlie Eastwood and the chance to get up close with his Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car.
