In2Racing ends Porsche Carrera Cup GB season with strong showing at Brands Hatch
6th October 2017
In2Racing finished the season with three drivers in top three championship positions after a strong showing at Brands Hatch.
Peter Kyle-Henney needed to keep up his outstanding run of victories to have a chance of taking the Pro-Am2 title, and did just that with a pair of commanding wins – 22 seconds clear in race one alone. Unfortunately, he needed help as rival Shamus Jennings needed to finish third or lower for Peter to take the title, but he held on, winning the championship by a single point, a tough result after Peter’s incredible performance to win 12 times this season.
Pro-Am2 colleague Iain Dockerill bounced back from missing the podium at Silverstone with a third-place finish in race one, but fell back to fifth in the dying laps in race two, though it was enough for him to secure third in the Pro-Am2 championship standings behind Peter.
In the Pro class, Tom Wrigley put in a stellar performance in race one to finish sixth, and followed up with another top-ten performance, coming home ninth in race two. This was enough to create a clean sweep of top-three championship performances as he finished second in the Rookie standings, a just reward for his efforts this year.
Tom Wrigley, driver #19
“I’ve probably learnt more this season than I have in any year of my racing career so far and to come away with second in the Rookie standings in a positive end to the season. I must say a huge thank you to In2Racing, they have been a real pleasure to work with this season and they’ve given me a fantastic car. Hopefully, we’ll be back in 2018.”
Peter Kyle-Henney, driver #22
“We’ve been fastest all weekend. I’m a fair, clean driver, so all I could do was get out in front a drive away. It was frustrating because I could see Shamus in the distance.”

Nick Dudfield, Team Principal
“Peter’s pace has been fantastic, his pace has been increasing all the while and I’m glad to say we’ve been a part of it. Every time he goes out he focuses and gives it his all, he works well with Josh, and he can be proud of what he’s achieved. We’ve laid some good foundations to come back next season.
“Iain this weekend has been there or thereabouts, but a little mistake in paddock meant he couldn’t quite finish second.”
