Continued Clarke Cayman Clean-Up

Dan Clarke continued his dominant Cayman performances with another successful weekend at the Porsche Club America (PCA) Sebring "48hours" event on February 2nd in Florida.

Running used Pirelli slicks for the first time on the 2012 Isringhausen Motorsports Porsche Cayman S, the Brit led all sessions, including Qualifying, to set an unbeatable standard throughout the whole weekend. Closest competition included the IMSA GT3 series racer Marco Cirone and his race prepped 997 Porsche 911.

It wasn't all plain sailing however. Race 1 proved to have it's difficulties as the Brit got caught up with a group of 3 slow moving back markers on the final lap, ultimately giving Cirone a chance to nip by and take the win, after a very close fought battle never stretching out further than 5 car lengths from start to finish.

"I'd been lying if I said I wasn't super frustrated at the time and losing the win. But realistically, this is PCA Club Racing, it says that on the tin, and the rules and format here contribute to that. So in a backmarker situation, with drivers of varying experience, sometimes you are going to run into trouble and not always come out on top. Thankfully it's all just good fun out there, with a lot of super nice guys, and Marco put on a great race and challenge in Race 1 in his 997. The Isringhausen team enjoys a great presence here at these events, we've been dominant all weekend in our Cayman, and it's a nice community here of Porsche enthusiasts and racers."

Race 2 went more to plan with Clarke setting off on lap1 in the lead with no intentions of looking back. A small ripple with a yellow flag safety period during the middle, but a dominant restart followed, and it was a lights to flag win for the Briton with Cirone coming in in 2nd place.

"This is a great way to kick off the season. I've been pumped about coming to this event for weeks. It's hugely satisfying for myself and the Isringhausen team to turn up with Porsche Cayman and race hard with guys in all types of Porsches. This car really does handle like a dream! I'm currently living in the mountains of Colorado for the winter so the thought of coming down here to this gorgeous weather and friendly Porsche atmosphere, has had me walking around with a smile."

Dan is still unconfirmed for races for the remainder of the 2013 season but is looking for opportunities to compete in the American Le Mans and Grand-Am series.
