After six months of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB championship, the 2017 driver's title came down to the final two laps of Brands Hatch in a nail-biting last showdown. Porsche Centre Guildford sponsored driver, Charlie Eastwood, claimed the title by virtue of having more victories after tying on points with season-long rival Dino Zamparelli.
Eastwood needed a top-five finish to secure the title and he came in fifth after a race-long battle with Zamparelli’s team-mates, inflicting damage to his car in the process. Charlie Eastwood said “I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone at Porsche for giving me this amazing opportunity; to have the best two years of racing that I have ever had. Also, thank you to all my family for supporting me through all the ups and downs over the years, but we always come out on top in the end and, for that, I am very grateful!”
