Knockhill – Charles Rainford secures second Porsche Carrera Cup Victory
Knockhill is a true drivers circuit and it very much suits Charles driving style. Testing on Wednesday saw some good lap times which improved each time he hit the track. In Saturday’s qualifying it all came together and he qualified on the Pro-Am pole with a lap time of 49.222. An incredible achievement having never raced here before. Sunday continued in the same vain. Charles kept his position whilst building a gap to the next Pro-Am challengers behind. It was a comfortable Pro-Am win and his second of the season so far. Race 2 started really well, from 7th on the grid, Charles stuck with the leading pack of Pro drivers until a safety car was called out. Upon the restart however, Charles suffered a failure of the left driveshaft assembly. We believe it was caused when another car made contact with the left rear wheel earlier in the race. Despite the DNF we come away from Scotland very happy. Charles talents are growing with each round and we know we have what it takes to win races.
